White House Blasts Omarosa’s Book Claiming Trump Used Racist Remarks

Omarosa Manigault told NPR that hearing Donald Trump say the n-word on tape "changed everything for me".

Donald Trump is a "racist" who regularly used the "N-word" on the set of "The Apprentice", claims Omarosa Manigault Newman, who starred on the show and then followed the president to the White House.

But she refused, according to the incendiary new book, "Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House", which also depicts Trump as unqualified, narcissistic and racist. She's criticizing the media for giving her a platform.

Beef Between Cam Newton And Kelvin Benjamin Seems to Have Escalated
The conversation continued until Benjamin said something to Newton that had Newton gesturing that he was finished with him. Kelvin Benjamin made some strong comments last weekend about the Carolina Panthers and their quarterback, Cam Newton .

In the memoir the former White House public liasion worker writes how she felt a 'growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist'. But tapes, unfortunately for him, seem to be a theme of his presidency, and Manigault Newman's have not yet been swept up in a government investigation.

"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", the statement reads.

The former contestant on Trump's reality show, NBC's "The Apprentice", asserts in her tome that Trump later told her he did not know the chief of staff had asked her to leave her post. However, the Guardian notes that Manigault Newman does not say she has ever heard him say the word, and cites three sources who she does not name. She also calls her former boss a "racist, misogynist and bigot", and says one of the reasons she was sacked was because it was known she was trying to acquire the Apprentice tape. "The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous", wrote Conway, a frequent Trump critic despite his marriage to one of Trump's most consistent supporters, "particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House - December 12, 2017". Omarosa claims Trump used the derogatory terms "flip" and "goo-goo" in regard to Conway, but Conway himself thinks that's "absurd", he tweeted. "Would you look at this George Conway article?" the president is quoted in Unhinged. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she wrote, according to the Post.
