Trump Calls Omarosa 'A Lowlife' After N-Word Claim Surfaces

Reports of the bombshell allegations in the book against Trump caught fire this week, including her calling him a "racist", "misogynist", and a "bigot" alongside accounts of him using a racial slur on the set of The Apprentice, and eating a piece of paper in the Oval Office.

President Donald Trump has responded to the claims that he used racial slurs on the set of "The Apprentice", which have stemmed from former senior adviser and "The Apprentice" contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman's book, "Unhinged".

President Donald Trump called Omarosa a "lowlife" in his first public response to her new tell-all book.

According to the Post, an excerpt from Unhinged also claims that Lara Trump, the President's daughter-in-law, and adviser offered Omarosa a job after she was sacked from The White House.

She recalls him saying: 'Omarosa, what do you think about me getting sworn in on The Art Of The Deal?'

Manigault Newman claims in her upcoming book, "Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House", that Trump pitched the idea of taking his presidential oath on a copy of "The Art of the Deal", according to an excerpt obtained by Slate Magazine on Saturday.

She also claims without evidence that tapes exist of the president using the N-word repeatedly on the reality show's set. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders criticized Unhinged as "riddled with lies and false accusations".

She then asked: 'Instead of the Bible?' before Mr Trump supposedly replied: 'Yeah. "Yeah. The Art of the Deal is a bestseller!" "Just think how many copies I'd sell - maybe a commemorative inauguration copy?"

Manigault Newman also wrote in the book she was offered $15,000 a month contract to sign a nondisclosure agreement after she was sacked from the White House previous year, which she said she turned down.

In the book, Manigault Newman painted the president as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

"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".

'During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track. It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks'. The White House has already slammed it as "riddled with lies and false accusations".
