Director of Communications for the White House Public Liaison Office Omarosa Manigault listens during the daily press briefing at the White House, Oct. 27, 2017.

In Unhinged: An Insider Account Of The Trump White House, published next week, Manigault Newman claims Trump is a "racist, bigot and misogynist".

Donald Trump has responded to allegations he is a "racist" and tapes exist of him repeatedly using "the N-word" by calling his accuser a "low-life".

Manigault Newman told Todd that she made the recordings of conversations because "this is a White House where everybody lies" and "you have to have your back".

In her interview with Todd, Manigault Newman said she considered the offer an attempt to buy her silence. In a subsequent interview, she changed her story to say that she had heard Trump utter that word, a reversal that highlighted her not-exactly-sterling level of credibility.

NASA chief of the science mission directorate, Thomas Zurbuchen, said Parker is an "incredible hero of our scientific community". To shield the probe from the Sun's intense heat and radiation, the Parker probe is armed with a novel carbon-composite shield.

Manigault Newman also alleges that Trump allies tried to buy her silence after she left the White House, offering her $15,000 a month to serve in a "senior position" on his 2020 re-election campaign along with a stringent nondisclosure agreement.

"I have documentation, a whole treasure-trove of documentation for everything you see in this book", she said.

Manigault Newman explained Sunday that she'd resisted leaving the White House because "I was working to try to find someone who could take my place", noting the White House hasn't hired another African American presidential aide since her departure. "So yes, I had to protect myself, and I have no regrets about it". Manigault said that since this was her first conversation with Kelly, she'd like to ask some questions. And things getting ugly for me, and damage to my reputation, that is downright criminal.

She says that during his time at The Apprentice Trump used the N-word "multiple times" and, according to three sources she knows, there is a tape to prove it. On the Saturday anniversary of the riot, Trump tweeted, "I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence", which some have interpreted as more waffling, as reported by USA Today.

Ivanka Trump and her husband reportedly pressured her father to single out white supremacists and neo-Nazis immediately after the violence past year, and he did - and then reversed himself within a day, once again blaming both sides.
