Former "Apprentice" contestant and White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman claims President Donald Trump repeatedly used "the N-word", according to The Guardian, which obtained an advance copy of her forthcoming book Unhinged.
Manigault Newman also writes in her book that Trump campaign adviser and daughter-in-law Lara Trump offered her a $15,000-a-month hush-money contract after she was sacked by the White House, the Washington Post reported.
The Trump campaign declined to comment on Manigault Newman's description of the deal Lara Trump supposedly offered her. She also insists that she heard Trump using epithets about George Conway, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband. "A$3 nd even worse that the media would not give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration". She served as director of communications for the White House office of public liaison before her dismissal last December. But, at least according to her book's official synopsis, "that relationship has come to a decisive and definitive end".
Earlier this week, the Daily Beast reported that Manigault Newman had recorded some of her interactions with the president in the White House.
Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" rocked the West Wing when it hit shelves in January and caused Trump's inner circle to sever ties with Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist.More news: Mueller requests Trump-related portion of Manafort’s trial be kept secret
Once Manigault-Newman was kicked out of the White House and dismissed from her position, she writes: "It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist". "F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo".
Newman claims she was sacked after coming close to get her hands on the tape said to contain the racist slurs, which Apprentice producers have refused to release for contractual reasons.
George Conway has not shied away from criticizing Trump on Twitter. The campaign would have tasked her with "diversity" outreach. Omarosa says she rejected the offer.
More details: Omarosa claims that Trump had a tanning bed installed in the White House residence, per the Post. Since Trump was ever the germophobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes.
