On Saturday, reporters asked Trump during an event at his golf club in New Jersey if he felt betrayed by Manigault Newman.
According to the Guardian website, which says it obtained a copy of Manigault Newman's memoir prior to its August 14 publication date, the former Apprentice contestant and later White House communications staffer writes in Unhinged that while she did not personally hear Trump use the N-word she cites three sources who described the contents of the tape.
Manigault starred in NBC's reality show The Apprentice while it was hosted by Trump.
Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman claims in a new book that there are tapes of President Donald Trump using racial slurs and that she saw him behaving "like a dog off the leash" at numerous events he attended without his wife, first lady Melania Trump. "F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo". George Conway called those allegations "not credible".
After she left the White House, Manigault Newman said on "Good Morning America": "As the only African American woman in this White House, as a senior staff and assistant to the president, I have seen things that have made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people". After Omarosa's reportedly dramatic firing in December, Politico reported that chief of staff John Kelly let her go because she was allegedly abusing White House vehicle service privileges, among other infractions.
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'. The Associated Press purchased an early copy of the memoir, which the White House has already slammed as "riddled with lies and false accusations".
Another White House official confirmed that Manigault Newman brought Cohen into the White House and was later rebuked for it. Since Trump was ever the germaphobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper.
Omarosa also writes in the book that she witnessed Trump making other racist remarks firsthand.
"Everything was fine until I got in the way of what her boss wanted, which was to attack the press", Ryan writes in the book, which is out next month from Rowman & Littlefield. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.
The claim is included in her memoir, "Unhinged", which is scheduled to be released August 14.
