Omarosa Claims She Heard Tape Of Trump Using N-Word

In this photo, taken February 14, 2017, Omarosa Manigault-Newman, then an aide to President Donald Trump, watches during a meeting with parents and teachers in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington.

Like numerous assorted presidential hangers-on who populated the White House in the early days of Trump's administration, her responsibilities there were never entirely clear.

Manigault Newman's book, Unhinged, characterises the U.S. president as a bigot, sexist and racist who she claims has been caught on mic using the N-word multiple times.

Manigault Newman claims she personally witnessed Trump using derogatory language while in the White House.

Manigault Newman said she taped the meeting, which was held in the Situation Room, because she was trying to "protect" herself. In a subsequent interview, she changed her story to say that she had heard Trump utter that word, a reversal that highlighted her not-exactly-sterling level of credibility. "That I tried to charge the residence at the White House".

Conway said that, in her more than two years working with Trump, she has never heard him use a racial slur about anyone.

"It is hindsight. But I will say this to you, I was complicit with this White House deceiving this nation", she said. "I felt myself being manipulated, but refused to allow that to happen".

"On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said - yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant - and when he'd said them".


The truly troubling thing about the tape, as an alarmed Twitter quickly picked up on, is that it exists at all.

Manigault Newman's purported recordings inside the White House - especially the Situation Room, which is supposed to be one of the most secure locations on Earth - represents a serious breach of security protocol, said Ned Price, a former National Security Council spokesman for the Obama administration.

Trump, she said she'd concluded after years of defending him, was a bigot. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called it "riddled with lies and false accusations" and Trump on Saturday labelled Manigault Newman a "lowlife".

The president was slammed last year for saying that there was "hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides" in the wake of the rally, which left 32-year-old Heather Heyer dead.

In the book, Manigault Newman, who was a contestant on Trump's "The Apprentice" reality show and later served as a senior adviser to the president, hurls a litany of allegations, painting the president as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

In her book, Manigault Newman attempts to explain why she remained at his side, even as he took steps that angered her.

The white supremacist movement is enjoying a greater sense of empowerment under President Donald Trump, he added.

And Trump called her a "lowlife" during a photoshoot on Saturday.
