Former aide Omarosa’s White House recordings fuel Trump woes

Manigault Newman says she secretly recorded Kelly firing her in the White House Situation Room in December 2017, and she played the recording on NBC's Meet The Press on Sunday. "The president's point was that they [staff] would think twice about that if they were on the hook for some serious damages", the source said.

When Guthrie brought up the topic of mental health, Omarosa dismissed her with a wave of the hand, saying, "You know we have an interview after this ... but I will answer the last question - and you see that the time running out", she said, pointing in front of her, ostensibly at a clock or timer.

Paraphrasing Manigault-Newman's telling of the story, the Post reported that campaign adviser Lara Trump offered her 'a job and the monthly contract in exchange for her silence'.

President Donald Trump was accused by his former White House aide and "The Apprentice" contestant Omarosa Manigault of using a horribly racist word, and he directly addressed the claim on Monday.

Manigault Newman says she has more recordings. "She made it up". She originally meant to get married in Jacksonville in March 2017, but changed her plans after facing death threats.

Manigault Newman says she considered the statement a "threat". He said Kelly had called her a "loser & nothing but problems", but he himself had tried to save her job - because he liked her public comments about him.

"Look at her MANY recent quotes saying", he added in a second tweet, "such wonderful and powerful things about me - a true Champion of Civil Rights - until she got fired".

Not only is this flat-out false (I've never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn't even make an effort to call or email me to verify.

McEntee, who shadowed the president during much of his first term as Trump's "body man", was hired by the campaign within hours of being escorted from the White House.

"They continue to deceive this nation by how mentally declined he is", Manigault-Newman added, "how hard it is for him to process complex information". She was the highest-ranking African-American on the White House staff.


The former official launched a media frenzy amid the release of her book that paints the Trump administration in an unflattering light. He also has targeted black NFL players for kneeling in social protest during the national anthem.

Both also apparently include clauses prohibiting signers from engaging in any media appearances about Trump without the campaign's permission, something she has done at least a half-dozen times since Friday.

But neither Sanders nor other White House officials provided an explanation for why Trump hired Manigault Newman in the first place to manage communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

All Trump campaign staffers were required to sign a nondisclosure agreement upon joining the campaign.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly listens as President Donald Trump holds a round table meeting with members of law enforcement about sanctuary cities in the Roosevelt Room at the White House in Washington, March 20, 2018.

The source said that at the time 'it was very hush-hush why she was sacked in Washington. "Anything that they want, I will certainly corroborate".

"It's come to my attention over the last few months that there's been some pretty, in my opinion, significant integrity issues related to you", Kelly is heard saying, before adding that if she makes it a "friendly departure" then she can "go on without any type of difficulty in the future relative to your reputation".

According to excerpts of her forthcoming memoir released to The Guardian, Omarosa said Mr. Trump used the "N-word" repeatedly during the taping of "The Apprentice" prior to his presidency, and she claims that there is a recording of his use of the slur.

She may not be finished talking.
