In wake of book, Trump calls Omarosa ‘a lowlife’

When she was sacked, she said she had a "growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist".

Manigault Newman writes in the book, according to the Guardian, that in late 2016 Trump's team held a conference call to discuss possible responses should the tape be made public.

One of the claims receiving a lot of attention (although not confirmed) is that there is a tape of Donald Trump repeatedly saying the word "nigger" while on the set of his NBC show "The Apprentice".

"It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist", Manigault-Newman writes.

"Many didn't notice it as keenly as I did because I knew him way back when". But, at least according to her book's official synopsis, "that relationship has come to a decisive and definitive end".

"By that point, three sources in three separate conversations had described the contents of this tape".

Comedian Tom Arnold (Rosanne Barr's ex-husband) also said earlier this year on the Seattle-based radio station KIRO, "I have the outtakes to "The Apprentice" where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever".

Omarosa has very little credibility, as well as a history of publicity stunts, so there is plenty of reason to doubt her claims.

"The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous, particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House-December 12, 2017", Conway wrote in a tweet.

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. 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.

Throughout the book, Manigault Newman paints a deeply critical portrait of the president, describing him as a man who "loved conflict, chaos and confusion; he loved seeing people argue or fight".

Notably, this was using Trump campaign funds. Unlike Omarosa, Schiller took the offer. 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". Trump was caught on tape by his former "fixer" Michael Cohen talking about the payments to McDougal.

The former aide, who was a contestant on the Trump-hosted program, said that she has not personally heard the president use the word. "She has no contact now", White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said during a press conference in February.
