In wake of book, Trump calls Omarosa 'a lowlife'

Share

After declaring dubiously on Friday that she has tapes of Trump saying the "n-word", Omarosa appeared Sunday on NBC's Meet The Press to dish more about her brief, but tumultuous time at the White House. "I heard his voice as clear as you and I are sitting here", she said.

Trump's message is in stark contrast with the controversial remarks he made almost a year ago, when he blamed the violence in Charlottesville on both the neo-Nazi groups and the counter-protesters, adding that there were "fine people" among the white supremacists, Efe reported.

"This is potentially a national security issue", she added.

"We're not suggesting any legal action here", he said.

Trump went further on Saturday, calling his former aide a "low-life" during an appearance with bikers at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf course.

The White House and Trump allies have blasted Newman's account as false in numerous statements.

The alleged revelation came as Newman released audio she secretly recorded when she was booted from the White House in December.

Newman made the charge during an exclusive interview with NBC's "Meet the Press", days before the release of her new book on Tuesday, "Unhinged". Period. Trump can not say those words because to do so would reaffirm his failure a year ago and, worse, annoy the segment of his white base that thinks they are the victims of racism.

But Newman pushed back against her critics by arguing that she can substantiate her claims in the book. "And if he'd used it about me, the betrayal would be devastating". He responded: "Lowlife. She's a lowlife". "I was complicit in it, for that I regret". Since leaving the White House in December, she has penned a book, which she is now promoting. They continue to deceive this nation by how mentally declined he [Trump] is, how hard it is for him to process complex information.

In a remarkable twist, former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman said Sunday she recorded her own firing by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly because she felt the need to protect her reputation. "Peace to ALL Americans!" the president tweeted. Sarah Huckabee stands in front of the country and lies every single day. "You have to have your own back". She says that she saw the Commander-in-Chief eat a piece of paper after a meeting with his then personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Trump unleashed a furious backlash a year ago when he engaged in jaw-dropping moral equivalence, saying there were "very fine people, on both sides" (meaning both Nazi sympathizers and anti-Nazi protesters) and later claiming there was "blame on both sides".

"If I didn't have these recordings, no one in America would believe me", she said. "No one. So I protected myself and I'm going to tell you, I'm so glad I did".
