The exit of Omarosa Manigault Newman created a significant void in the White House — there are no more black senior advisers to President Donald Trump, The Washington Post reports.

Trump's surgeon general is black as is Housing and Urban Development chief Ben Carson, but neither is a White House staffer.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders couldn't give a number Thursday when asked if there still black senior advisers.

"I don't have a number directly in front of me specifically on African-Americans, but I can say again we have a very diverse team at the White House," she said Thursday.

Omarosa resigned — or was suddenly fired — her position as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, a position for which she was scrutinized and ridiculed given that no one really understood what it is she did in the role that paid $180,000 annually, the Post reported.

Reporting earlier in the week said Omarosa was angry and cursing after chief of staff John Kelly gave her the boot, at one point reportedly telling Kelly that she delivered the black vote for Trump in the 2016 election.

Making a morning show appearance Thursday, Omarosa denied pretty much every point of the reporting, instead saying she resigned, her last day is Jan. 20, and that she has observed things at the White House that made her "uncomfortable."
