President Donald Trump has responded to Omarosa Manigault Newman's claim that there is a recording from the set of "The Apprentice" in which he uses the n-word, writing on Twitter that he doesn't "have that word in my vocabulary".
Manigault Newman, who rose to fame via multiple appearances on "The Apprentice", has claimed she heard tapes where Trump repeatedly uses the racial slur during filming of his old NBC reality show.
Manigual Newman also said in the interview that she believes Trump is not the same person she knew in 2013, saying he now has "some serious mental impairments".
"I loved him [talking to her] on the phone". "Now that she says bad about me, they will talk to her. Fake News!" She played portions of the recordings on "Meet the Press" on Sunday and Monday on "Today". Mr. Trump had already branded "Omarosa" - as she is commonly known in America - a "lowlife" after she released a recording of her firing by Mr. Kelly, seemingly recorded in the White House Situation Room. "She's not a friend; she's a liar, and I would say she's evil". She alleges Trump is a racist, a misogynist and a narcissist.
"The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room, shows a blatant disregard for our national security-and then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee", Sanders said in a August 12 statement.
Trump seemed to acknowledge that the unseemly fight would have been unusual for most of his 44 predecessors as president of the United States. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] Quite a story to tell as the only African American woman in this White House. But then as the campaign started getting details about why she was let go - that's when it became clear - she wasn't going to come back on board'.
'The only reason we offered her a new one at all is that we included the Pence family in there for the first time, ' the official explained, referring to a copy the Post published Friday. She added: "Then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee". "I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!" he wrote. "He doesn't know how to control himself".
Months after initial reports of the Trump administration requiring West Wing staffers to sign non-disclosure agreements, the President and his senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, confirmed Monday that they did.
Manigault Newman also weighed in on that controversial jacket that Melania Trump wore when visiting the child detention center right in the midst of the blowback the President received for his inhumane policy of separating immigrant children from their parents. Mr. Trump came to office vowing to hire "only the best people" - but has struggled to put a lid on leaks, incompetence, backbiting and scandal inside his White House.
