WATCH: Omarosa Explains How Trump Team Used To Keep Him From Sleeping

A breakout star on The Apprentice, Omarosa Manigault Newman would become a trusted member of Donald Trump's inner circle for many years. She even followed Trump into the White House, working as an aide, but she had a falling out with him and is now registered as an Independent. 

Manigault Newman is quite familiar with how different Trump is and the steps the team around him had to take to keep him focused. On Thursday night, she appeared on MSNBC to talk about Trump's issues with his current trial. 

Host Jason Johnson asked the former Trump staffer, "Just overall, how do you think he's going to handle having to sit in trial every single day and listen to people talk about him?"

"I will tell you, I have had to sit through long ceremonies with Donald Trump," Manigault Newman responded. "I've had to sit next to him during long church services or different policy events. And Donald Trump cannot focus, nor can he sit still for very long. In fact, we used to build our events specifically to address his attention deficit. We would break up the events so that he be stimulated and not fall asleep."

The former Trump friend continued, "I think it's going to be difficult for Donald to sit through eight weeks of these proceedings. Sometimes they're not exciting, sometimes they're very boring. And as you heard, he sometimes falls asleep during these sessions."
