Omarosa claims she heard Trump N-word tape after book's publication

Omarosa Manigault

In advance of the publication of her tell-all memoir Unhinged, Omarosa Manigault Newman appeared on Meet the Press with a tape of her firing from the White House by chief of staff John Kelly.

He says: "Nobody even told me about it". It added that she blatantly ignored security procedures by taping Kelly in the Situation Room, a location in the basement of the West Wing, where highly-sensitive conversations take place.

In an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Manigault Newman said she made the recording in the Situation Room - a revelation that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, if true, "shows a blatant disregard for our national security".

"I've never heard of a more serious breach of protocol", said Ned Price, who served as spokesman of the National Security Council in the Obama administration.

Manigault said that since this was her first conversation with Kelly, she'd like to ask some questions.

Shortly after Manigault-Newman was sacked in January the White House created a new policy that bars staff and guests from using personal cellphones in the West Wing.

Manigault Newman has written that such a tape exists but has not provided evidence.

Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to President Donald Trump, struggled on Sunday to name an African-American person in a prominent White House role. She said she recorded the meeting, which occurred in the Situation Room, because she was feeling threatened.

Omarosa also said Trump, who referred to her as a "lowlife" in response to the accusations, is "mentally declined" and not engaged in important policy decisions. But I mean, the reality is, Jonathan, the media ridiculed and mocked Omarosa for the full year plus that she was in the White House.

"The president is frustrated that the attorney general recused himself in early March of 2017 from anything having to do with the campaign", she said.

Quoting Trump's early, post-inauguration speech at the Central Intelligence Agency lamenting his inauguration crowd, Manigault Newman takes some editorial liberty, adding within quotation marks that Trump says, "Liars! And so the only thing that's changed is that she's now selling books". "So yes, I had to protect myself, and I have no regrets about it".

'But when he talks that way, the way he did on this tape, it confirmed that he is truly a racist'.

In an interview with NBC television, Ms Manigault Newman claims that the tape includes audio of Mr Trump using the N-word during filming of his reality series, The Apprentice, on which she co-starred.

"What I can tell you is the thought of doing something like that to a fellow employee, not to mention the leader of the free world, is completely disgraceful", he said.
