Omarosa says there are tapes of Trump using the n-word

In the book, Manigault Newman, who was a contestant on Trump's "The Apprentice" reality show and later served as a senior adviser to the president, hurls a litany of allegations, painting the president as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

"Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations".

That's according to excerpts from the book published by The Guardian today.

However she claims that Mr Kelly was aware that she was close to getting her hands on Mr Trump's compromising Apprentice tapes which prompted him to fire her under another pretext.

Manigault Newman, who is reported to have extensively taped her conversations in the White House, is expected to appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

'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'.

But Ryan says that, because her relationship with the reality-star-turned-White-House-aide had become strained during the Trump administration, she didn't want to do the duty.

The controversy created by Manigault Newman's tell-all, which comes out next week, will not be the first time the White House has been forced to contend with sensational claims in a book. She says she declined the offer.

After she was sacked, Manigault Newman wrote, she received a call from Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, offering her a job and the monthly contract in exchange for her silence.

Omarosa was sacked in December, when Trump tweeted, "Thank you Omarosa for your service!"

Omarosa also writes that Trump used racial slurs to refer to Kellyanne Conway's husband, George Conway; George Conway tweeted today that the claim is "absurd" and "not credible". "F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo". "Would you look at this George Conway article?" the president is quoted in Unhinged.

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.

"I saw him put a note in his mouth". She writes that over time, she came to the realization that Trump was a racist, something the rest of us already knew.
