White House communications aide Omarosa Manigault is tracking people she sees as "enemies" to President Donald Trump's agenda, according to a new report.

The long-time ally of Trump is keeping tabs on White House correspondent journalist April Ryan and others whom she sees as the "biggest threats to sow discord in the African American community against the White House agenda," according to the Daily Mail.

Sources told the Daily Mail that Manigault has "dossiers" on Ryan, reporter Roland Martin, and Pastor Jamal Bryant.

Manigault said Bryant has "been a friend for many years," and that Martin and his wife "are both long time friends" whom she has "immense respect for."

But Manigault said she severed her 20-year-long friendship with Ryan.

"Unfortunately our relationship ended after it was disclosed in the WikiLeaks emails that she was unethically coordinating media strategy with John [Podesta] for the Clinton campaign," Manigault told the Daily Mail.

A source said that Ryan's staunch opposition to Trump caused her relationship with Manigault to suffer.

"When April told Omarosa she thought her Trump support was a bad idea, it was the end of their friendship," the source said.

Trump's relationship with Manigault spans back to his days on his reality show, "The Apprentice."

Manigault denied that she was keeping track of the reporters and pastor, and Ryan declined to comment on the report.
