  • Trump Hires Harder, Hunk Hogan's Gawker-Toppling Lawyer, In Dispute Against Omarosa

Asked whether there is a tape anywhere of Donald Trump using the n-word, as former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has claimed, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pointedly and repeatedly declined to rule it out.

Raynard Jackson, a black Republican who has worked on GOP presidential, gubernatorial and local campaigns, said Manigault Newman secretly recording Trump and other White House officials will make her a pariah in conservative circles as well.

But the president's venom has grown as she releases recordings she had surreptitiously made of staff and him, undermining West Wing morale and infuriating Trump, who used incendiary language on Twitter Tuesday, writing "When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn't work out". We saw that on reality TV. "And the transcripts prove it", she said.

When asked about the White House disputing the details of her book, Manigault-Newman told Noah she 100 percent expected denial from the administration.

In addition to speaking publicly about her experiences in Trump's White House, Manigault Newman has been releasing audio recordings of conversations and meetings held in the building, including a snippet of one she says is of her telephone conversation with Trump the day after she was sacked in December by White House chief of staff John Kelly. What was most striking about the CBS News recording was how quickly the woman identified as Pierson granted the premise that this was something Trump had actually said. But after leaving her role in December past year and publishing her damning memoir, the relationship has gone seriously downhill.

While Manigault-Newman dangles a carrot saying she's got Trump on tape spewing the n-word, the president denies it and says an Apprentice producer on Mondayconfirms no such tapes exist.

Omarosa then began to speak out against Trump himself, telling Noah that the constant lies were her breaking point.




Armed with tapes of private conversations, she's alleged that Trump's a racist with a history of using vile slurs against black people.

Thanks to a different recording released by Ms Manigault-Newman, we know there were some senior staffers in the Trump campaign who thought the rumours were credible in 2016.

Fired by Kelly in December, Manigault Newman now says many of Trump's actions gave her pause but she was sympathetic to him as a longtime friend and mentor.

In her book, "Unhinged", Ms Manigault Newman claims the Trump campaign was aware of the existence of the tape from the "Apprentice" period.

"I'm not a lawyer but I think she violated trust at the very least". "I think this is what Melania was talking about when she said Be Best".

"Correction from today's briefing: Jobs numbers for Pres Trump and Pres Obama were correct, but the time frame for Pres Obama wasn't", she said on Twitter.
