In wake of critical book, Trump calls Omarosa 'a lowlife'

In wake of critical book, Trump calls Omarosa 'a lowlife'

Manigault Newman was referring to what she calls the "N-word tape" - a long-rumored but never surfaced tape of Donald Trump on the set of the Apprentice allegedly using the racial slur. The Daily Beast reported earlier this week that Manigault secretly taped some conversations she had in the White House.

Manigault Newman also suggested she now believed that she was pushed out of the White House because she was close to getting hold of the secret tapes revealing Trump using the racist word.

Conway however, denied Omarosa's claims, tweeting that 'The allegation isn't credible, and is ridiculous, particularly in light of the timing of [Omarosa's] departure from the White House-December 12, 2017.

"Hearing it changed everything for me", former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman told NPR on Friday.

'Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole, ' Omarosa wrote in 'Unhinged'. When she left the White House, she says she was offered $15,000 a month to serve in a "senior position" on Trump's 2020 re-election campaign. It comes at the first anniversary of deadly white-supremacist protests in Charlottesville, where Trump was criticized for saying there fine people "on both sides". She alleges in the book there is a tanning bed in the White House residence and says the president fought with the now-departed chief usher about its installation; other aides say they have not seen a tanning bed in the White House. Manigault Newman says she turned down the offer. Tom Arnold, a former contestant on the show who was once married to disgraced star Roseanne Barr, said he has Trump tapes too.

The former Apprentice participant also alleged that Trump had insulted Kellyanne Conway's husband George Conway, who is half Filipino, calling him a "f*cking goo-goo".

Trump wasn't aware that Kelly fired her.

Her tumultuous time in the White House and very public break with Trump have caused many critics to question her credibility and the veracity of her claims.

Incredibly, this person - who shall remain nameless - picked up the phone.

"I saw him put a note in his mouth".

She once walked in on Trump chewing up a piece of paper and seemingly swallowing it in the Oval Office.

"Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations", White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said, according to The New York Times. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.

The contract was for a "diversity outreach" job for the campaign, and came with a proposed non-disclosure agreement that would bar Manigault Newman from commenting about Trump or his family, the Post reported.
