White House slams Omarosa over her book

White House slams Omarosa over her book

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. However, Omarosa writes that she did not hear Trump utter the word herself, only that she has spoken to three people who have heard the tape and described its contents to her. Omarosa appeared on the reality show herself in the first season.

"It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist", she writes. Using the N-word wasn't just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'.

Omarosa worked with Trump on The Apprentice and followed him into the White House, drawing an annual salary of $179,700, was married at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, and brought her bridal party to the White House for photos.

Weeks before the 2016 election, an "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced in which Trump was heard bragging about grabbing women's genitals. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to questions about Manigault Newman's soon-to-be published book, which, according to the Guardian, contains allegations that Mr. Trump used racial slurs before and during his presidency. But on Friday, he said he doesn't believe Manigault-Newman's allegation. The contract also suggested that Omarosa would do "diversity outreach" for Trump's 2020 campaign.

Manigault-Newman, who campaigned for Trump and then took a job as director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, left the White House in December 2017 after Chief of Staff John Kelly took over.

Manigault-Newman's book "Unhinged" hits shelves next week.

"I saw him put a note in his mouth".

"Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations".

She writes, she felt a "growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist".
