"Mark Burnett called to say that there are NO TAPES of The Apprentice where I used such a awful and disgusting word as attributed by wacky and deranged Omarosa", Trump tweeted.

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski on Wednesday questioned the validity and enforceability of any nondisclosure agreements for White House employees.

Manigault Newman - who first gained fame as a contestant on Trump's reality TV show The Apprentice - has dripped out recordings of embarrassing private conversations at the White House as she promotes a memoir about her time with "The Donald".

In her book Omarosa said of Melania Trump: "It's my opinion that Melania was forced to go to the border that day in June, essentially, to mop up her husband's mess". The former staff members have found a wide range of rehabilitation within Trump's orbit: his re-election campaign, the Republican National Committee, and outside groups that support both him and Vice President Mike Pence.
