During an event in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Saturday, where Trump was meeting and interacting with bikers who support him, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman asked for his reaction to Newman's book.

Along with her "race war" comments Omarosa said, laughing, that "oh yeah, there's some people gettin' it on in the white house".

The name-calling came in response to a question about a series of explosive claims in Manigault Newman's forthcoming book about her time in the Trump administration.

"Lowlife, she's a lowlife", Trump responded before exiting a platform where he had been asking the bikers for their thoughts on the media. In the book, she paints Trump as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

In the book, Manigault Newman claims without evidence that tapes exist of Trump using the N-word repeatedly on the reality show's set.

President Trump took a swipe at onetime aide Omarosa Manigault Newman as he mingled with motorcycle-riding supporters during a rainy afternoon at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. Not only is this flat-out false (I've never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn't even make an effort to call or email me to verify.

One of Newman's more noteworthy allegations is that Trump is "a racist, a bigot and a misogynist" whose mental stability is in "decline". She says that Trump used racial slurs like the "N-word" during tapings of his reality show The Apprentice and that there are tapes of him saying it.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders criticized Unhinged as "riddled with lies and false accusations".

"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".
