Omorosa Manigault Newmanalleges the president used the slur "multiple times" while filming his reality show The Apprentice, and says there is a tape to prove it. But on Friday, he said he doesn't believe Manigault-Newman's allegation.
"On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said - yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant - and when he'd said them", Manigault Newman's book reads, according to NPR. Trump has continuously insisted that he is not a "racist", but if audio recordings do eventually come about showing that he did use the n-word to criticize African Americans, it would be hard for him to deny that label any longer.
Newman met Trump in 2004, when she was a contestant on the first season of The Apprentice.
In the book, Manigault Newman makes the stunning accusation that she was offered - and refused - a $15,000-per-month contract from Trump's campaign to remain silent after her unceremonious dismissal last December, according to excerpts obtained by the Washington Post. F**ing F**P! Disloyal! Fucking G**-g**'. She says she declined the offer.
Then White House director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison Omarosa Manigault, right, walks past President Donald Trump during a meeting on healthcare in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, March 13, 2017.
Omarosa was sacked in December, when Trump tweeted, "Thank you Omarosa for your service!"
She claims she also personally witnessed Trump using racial epithets when referencing his aide Kellyanne Conway's husband George, who is half-Filipino. "Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quotes the president as saying.
"I saw him put a note in his mouth".
Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House is described by its publisher as "a$3 stunning tell-all and takedown from a strong, intelligent woman who took every name and number". Since Trump was ever the germaphobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes.
