Omarosa Manigault Newman, former director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison of Donald Trump's White House, is the latest since-estranged associate to secretly record the president while in the White House, according to a report from The Daily Beast. She cites three unnamed sources who say that he has been caught on mic on the set of "The Apprentice" using the "N-word", but the White House quickly pushed back on her tome and the publicity surrounding it.
The White House criticized Manigault Newman in an official statement on Friday, with which press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders calling her a "disgruntled former White House employee" who is "trying to profit off false attacks".
After at least 12 audio recordings were seized from the office of Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen, the "Omarosa tapes" are the new hot-ticket surveillance cache-but unlike Cohen, Manigault Newman still has possession of her cell phone recordings, and she's supposedly using them to shop around her book, Unhinged, about her former boss.
"It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist".
Newman met Trump in 2004, when she was a contestant on the first season of The Apprentice. Using the N-word wasn't just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'.More news: Perseid August 2018: When can I see the meteor shower?

Weeks before the 2016 election, an "Access Hollywood" tape surfaced in which Trump was heard bragging about grabbing women's genitals.
"The NDA attached to the email was as harsh and restrictive as any I'd seen in all my years of television", Manigault Newman writes in the book.
More details: Omarosa claims that Trump had a tanning bed installed in the White House residence, per the Post.
"I saw him put a note in his mouth". She also spoke out about a potential tell-all book and what she really thinks of Trump's tweeting.
Payoff allegation: In the book, Omarosa says that Lara Trump, wife of presidential son Eric, offered her $15,000 a month when she left the White House if she agreed to say nothing negative about the president and his family or Mike Pence and his family, reports NBC News.
