President Trump Calls Former Aide Omarosa A ‘Dog’

Trump on Monday denied the existence of any tape from "The Apprentice" in which he used the racial epithet, citing the show's former producer, Mark Burnett.

In her book she claimed she never actually heard Trump using racial slurs, however, now after hearing the tape, her views have changed.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump called his former adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman a "dog".

Her appearance came one day before she was set to release Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House.

Recently, the first lady caused an uproar by wearing a jacket with the insensitive message, "I don't care", to the US-Mexico border, to talk to young children who are separated from their parents. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems.

Omarosa first entered Trump's orbit in 2004 when she was a contestant on his reality television show "The Apprentice" She returned years later on "The Celebrity Apprentice" and "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice", and she became a notorious reality TV villain during her time on the show. "Not only is this flat-out false (I've never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn't even make an effort to call or email me to verify".

Manigault Newman, he noted, has a new book going on sale.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Omarosa Manigault (R) attend a church service, in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., September 3 2016.

In an interview with AP, Omarosa said she believes the action was meant to keep her from telling her story.

Mrs Newman - a former star of The Apprentice who was sacked after a stint as a White House adviser - claimed that Mr Trump was recorded using the word while working on the show he hosted for 11 years.

On Tuesday morning, Trump took his rhetoric a step further, calling her a "dog". Mr. Trump also rejected Ms. Manigault Newman's assertion - made in her upcoming book - that he was caught on mic using the N-word during the making of "The Apprentice".

Omarosa’s White House recordings fuel Trump woes
On Monday, Mr Trump responded to the tape's release via Twitter, describing his Ms Maingault-Newman as "wacky" and a " lowlife ". The former Obama administration aide noted that Trump has "essentially mocked this ideal of a security culture".

"I will just say this, that there was a lot of corruption that went on, both in the campaign and in the White House, I am not going to blow the whistle on all of it", Manigualt-Newman explained.

In a morning tweet, Trump praised his chief of staff, John F. Kelly, for firing Manigault Newman previous year.

The recording by the disgruntled 44-year-old, once an ardent Trump ally, represents another stunning breach of presidential trust.

The former White House staff member went on to say: "As a student of fashion and keenly image-conscious woman, she knows that every one of her style choices will be scrutinized and debated".

Manigault Newman also claims in the book there may have been a hidden symbolism to the white Christian Dior pant suit that Melania wore to her husband's State of the Union address in January.

"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", he said in an August 10 tweet.

Now that Trump finds himself at the receiving end of Omarosa's blade, he doesn't seem to think she's so "honest".

Publicly, White House officials have looked to attack Manigault Newman's character as they seek to knock down her most salacious accusations.

"I was not signed to a non-disclosure agreement to hush me up", Lotter said.

Omarosa Manigault Newman's former colleagues say they are shocked that she secretly recorded private conversations with President Donald Trump and his chief of staff.
