A Philadelphia woman, who was once fired from Donald Trump's TV show, 'The Apprentice,' is now travelling the country as a spokeswoman for the Republican nominee for president.

Action News caught up with Erin Elmore at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention.

She had just come from appearances on national news programs where she now speaks on behalf of the candidate she first met on season three of 'The Apprentice.'

Though she heard those famous words, 'You're Fired,' during the show, she says she has unshakable support for Trump.

"He was such a good mentor, and such a good leader, that I knew no matter what he did I was always going to be a supporter," Elmore said.

Still, this Villanova Law graduate and mother of a young son says her new job as a so-called surrogate for Trump is an unlikely turn along her career path.

"If you would have told me, even two years ago, that I was going to be heavily-involved in Republican Party politics, I would have told you, 'wake up, you're dreaming,'" Elmore said. "What've I've learned so far is: every day is different. You're going to meet so many different people from so many different walks of life, but everyone has a good story and everyone is so interesting."

When asked if she has ever taken any flak for being a Trump supporter, Elmore said, "Philadelphia is pretty darn blue. I have taken plenty of flak. It's always good to deflect. I would say every single friend I have has remained my friend because they're so grateful for the opportunity that I've been given."

So what's next for Erin Elmore?

"Maybe I would have a job in the White House, but some would say maybe ABC's 'The View' as their conservative voice. Who knows?" she said. "But either way I've enjoyed the ride. Every day has been an adventure. If my adventure with politics stops tomorrow, I have lived and I have learned and I have had a blast."
