White House says Omarosa claim of Trump racism is 'false'

Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman claims in her new book that President Trump is a "racist" who repeatedly uses the N-word and that a tape exists of him saying it.

Manigault-Newman, who got famous as the villain of Trump's "The Apprentice" reality show, is coming out with a book next week about her time as an adviser in the White House.

The Guardian first reported her claims. "A$3 nd even worse that the media would not give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration".

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.

In early 2017, Manigault Newman says she walked Michael Cohen, then Trump's personal lawyer, into the Oval Office for a meeting with Trump - and saw the president chewing up a piece of paper while Cohen was leaving the office. Omarosa claims Trump used the derogatory terms "flip" and "goo-goo" in regard to Conway, but Conway himself thinks that's "absurd", he tweeted.

Paul's press released noted that nuclear proliferation and terrorism will be among the issues the worldwide leaders discuss. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters earlier in the week that he wanted "a sanctions bill from hell".

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.

Newman claims she was sacked after coming close to get her hands on the tape said to contain the racist slurs, which Apprentice producers have refused to release for contractual reasons. Politico explains the significance of the date: It wasn't widely well-known at that point that Conway sometimes criticized the president on Twitter; stories on it didn't widely emerge until after Omarosa left. She served as director of communications for the White House office of public liaison before her dismissal last December.

NPR's Rachel Martin pointed out the discrepancy to Manigault during the interview, prompting Manigault to try to tell Martin that she hadn't read the book.
