Omarosa Claims Donald Trump Used Racial Slurs in White House

Former reality star/White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman made some explosive claims in Unhinged, her new tell-all book about her brief tenure in the Trump administration.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, former director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison of Donald Trump's White House, is the latest since-estranged associate to secretly record the president while in the White House, according to a report from The Daily Beast. According to The Daily Beast, one person had confirmed that they had heard the contents of the voice recordings, and other sources described them "as anodyne, everyday chatter, but said they did appear to feature Trump's voice, either over the phone or in-person".

NPR's Rachel Martin pointed out the discrepancy to Manigault during the interview, prompting Manigault to try to tell Martin that she hadn't read the book.

At the time, an early Apprentice producer took to Twitter to say "there are far worse" behind-the-scenes tapes from the show.

Although some reports at the time of her departure late a year ago claimed she tried to storm Trump's residence and protest her firing at the hands of Kelly, Manigault Newman disputes the public account of her dismissal in her book, according to The Post.

"Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quoted the president as saying. "F***ing FLIP! Disloyal! F***ing Goo-goo".

Flip and goo-goo are epithets for Filipinos.

But when he heard the claim, Luntz tweeted that the accusation was completely false. "It's absurd all around".

On Friday, Manigault Newman insisted that the passage supported her claim, and that an NPR interviewer who confronted her over the discrepancy had merely not read the book.

She added: 'My certainty about the N-word tape and his frequent uses of that word were the top of a high mountain of truly appalling things I'd experienced with him, during the last two years in particular'. Using the N-word wasn't just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'.

Manigault claims in her upcoming book that the president used the offensive "n-word", and even implies that her attempt to find a tape of his using the word led to her being fired from the White House.

"I saw him put a note in his mouth".
