Trump Calls Omarosa a ‘Lowlife’ in Response to Book Claims

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".

After the 2016 presidential election, in an interview with the Independent Journal Review, Omarosa Manigault-Newman said that the Trump had a long memory and that his team was keeping a list of their enemies.

Her dramatic divorce from a man she likens to a cult leader is the subject of a salacious, self-serving, mostly unverifiable account of her West Wing tenure, "Unhinged: An Insiders Account of the Trump White House" (Gallery Books, 330 pages). She's criticizing the media for giving her a platform.

She wrote the book after Trump fired her.

"It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks", she said. "Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole".

Manigault Newman also reportedly secretly recorded Trump, then used those recordings as leverage while shopping her book.

After his election she joined his administration as communications director for the Office of Public Liaison before leaving in January.

"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". She acknowledges she had never been able to obtain or hear the tapes but said three unnamed sources had described their contents.

"During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track". Early excerpts have been denounced by White House officials, who are launching a concerted effort to discredit their former colleague.
