Trump hires Omarosa for his White House team

It’s a big hiring day for the incoming Trump White House.

President-elect Donald Trump has picked Katie Walsh as deputy to chief of staff Reince Priebus (ryns PREE’-bus). Walsh worked for Priebus at the Republican National Committee and helped with party fundraising.

Rick Dearborn, who used to work on Capitol Hill, is taking over a top job dealing with Congress.

Joe Hagin - who’s worked in three GOP White Houses - is coming on board as deputy chief of staff for operations.

The White House political director is Bill Stepien, a former political adviser to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Stepien was fired by Christie in the wake of the Bridgegate scandal.

Omarosa Manigault, a former contestant on “The Apprentice,” will focus on public engagement in the White House.

And Keith Schiller, Trump’s longtime personal security guard, will be director of Oval Office operations.
