The former aide to Donald Trump at the centre of a media storm has spoken out about her time in the White House. 

Omarosa Manigault Newman was speaking to Good Morning America's Michael Strahan on the ABC television network.

She told the programme she had witnessed things during her time in the White House which made her feel very uncomfortable. 

Newman wouldn't expand on the detail, but said when she would tell her story, it would be "profound."

Reports have been circulating over the circumstances of her departure from the seat of the executive branch of Government.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said Newman had handed in her resignation, but media reported she had been fired and escorted away, shouting and cursing, by White House staff. 

Another report by CBS News claimed the former aide had set off the building's alarms after trying to access the residence and speak to Donald Trump about her departure. 

President Trump issued thanks for Newman's service on Twitter.
