She said, “Donald Trump is racial, but he is not a racist. The things that he says, the types of pushback that he gives, involve people of color. These are racial exchanges.

Newman said, “It has been very, very challenging being the only African-American woman in the senior staff.” She also spoke in another interview with Michael Strahan and talked about how she has a story to tell. We will just have to see what happens with this.
