Ex-White House staffer releases tape of her firing

Omarosa in new book: I saw Trump’s racism ‘with my own eyes’

Omarosa Manigault Newman, a fired White House staffer and ex-contestant on The Apprentice, has claimed to have personally heard a tape of U.S. President Donald Trump dropping the N-word in conversation.

"If I didn't have these recordings, no one in America would believe me", Manigault Newman told NBC during an interview to promote her book Unhinged, an explosive tell-all about her days in the White House before she was sacked in December. "You don't know that you're in that situation until it just keeps bubbling and bubbling".

"Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House" is set to be published by Gallery Books on August 14. "He should have been denouncing what we saw as clearly racist Nazis".

Then turning to talk of the tape, she said this: "It's not disloyalty".

In her interview with Todd, Manigault Newman said she considered the offer an attempt to buy her silence.

"They continue to deceive this nation by how mentally declined he is", she said, referring to Trump, "how hard it is for him to process complex information". She later declined an offer to work on Trump's 2020 campaign and did not sign a confidentiality agreement.

Manigault-Newman, 44, gained renown as a villain on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice" and two of its spin-offs.

Chief of Staff John Kelly, left, can allegedly be heard telling Newman she can look at her time at the White House as a year of "service to the nation".

President Donald Trump tweeted that the sanctions were "the most biting sanctions ever imposed". Where these trade tensions threaten the volume of China's import of USA crude oil .

"If I didn't have these recordings, no one in America would believe me", Newman said on Sunday.

But national security experts say recording a conversation in the Situation Room, though unbeknownst to Kelly at the time, constitutes exactly the sort of integrity violation of which she was accused - and worse, it was a potential security breach in a room that's meant to be one of the most locked-down in Washington. On Sunday, Omarosa released a tape she secretly made of her firing, in which Kelly describes "significant integrity issues".

Omarosa Manigault Newman, then an aide to Trump, watches during a meeting with parents and teachers int he White House.

The final clip NBC aired showed Manigault Newman asking if Trump was "aware of what's going on" and Kelly interjecting and saying, "This is a non-negotiable discussion". Omarosa married her second husband in 2017 in the ballroom of Trump's luxury Washington hotel.

She called on the White House to release her personnel file to clear her name.

Manigault Newman had indeed been a staunch defender of the president for years, including pushing back, as the highest-profile African-American in the White House, on accusations that he was racist. "I had a blind spot when it came to Donald Trump". I wanted to see the best in him.

People close to the White House said that she was a hard colleague and that despite complaining of being blackballed by Kelly, Manigault Newman had indicated to incoming West Wing staff during the transition that they could face bad press if they did not give her a prominent role.
