Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman said the public has more to fear from Vice President Mike Pence than from President Trump.

Her comments were revealed in a preview of the next episode of the reality show “Celebrity Big Brother.”

“Can I just say this, as bad as you all think Trump is, you’d be worried about Pence. Everybody that’s wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their lives,” Mrs. Manigault-Newman said on the CBS program. “You would be begging for days of Trump back if Pence became president. He’s extreme. I’m Christian, I love Jesus. But he thinks Jesus tells him to say things, and I’m like, ‘Jesus didn’t say that.’ Scary.”

She also discussed negotiations on the DACA program — for those brought to the U.S. illegally as children — and said the border wall is what prevented a deal and led to a government shutdown earlier this year.

Mrs. Manigault-Newman served as communications director for the Office of Public Liaison before she resigned. She has criticized the Trump administration on the program before saying she would not vote for Mr. Trump again.
