Omarosa didn't make this threat up on her own. This is Trump. He's got a list.
The Trump Campaign Keeps a List of His Enemies
'It's so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get in to the White House, we know where we stand,' Trump surrogate Omarosa Manigault said.

What does President-elect Donald Trump have in common with Santa Claus?
He's keeping a list – and probably checking it twice.
Trump campaign surrogate and head of African-American outreach Omarosa Manigault told the Independent Journal Review on Tuesday that the campaign has been keeping a list of his enemies.
"It’s so great our enemies are making themselves clear so that when we get in to the White House, we know where we stand," Manigault said. "I would never judge anybody for exercising their right to and the freedom to choose who they want. But let me just tell you, Mr. Trump has a long memory and we’re keeping a list.”
The comment was sparked by the revelation that Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Trump competitor during the GOP primary, cast his vote for independent Evan McMullin:
Manigault said in a September "Frontline" special that "every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump. It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, who ever disagreed, who ever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”
On Thursday night's episode of "The Late Show," host Stephen Colbert mocked the Trump campaign for the list.
"They went from zero to Nixon in no time flat,” he said, adding that it's “worth noting because some people in late-night have said one or two things that were critical of Donald Trump.”
He later made a frenzied plea into the camera, selling his fellow late-night hosts down the river. "It was Sam Bee and Seth Meyers! They’re the ones who said all those horrible things about you. I was just joking the whole time. All hail our glorious leader! Giant hands! You’ve got giant hands! You’re going to be great!"
He then backed away from the camera and said coolly: "... is what a p***y would say."
