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

The book alleges that Manigault Newman was offered $15,000 a month from the president's campaign coffers to stay silent after she was sacked from the White House last December. When she left the White House, she says she was offered $15,000 a month to serve in a "senior position" on Trump's 2020 re-election campaign.

She said he's not only bigoted and racist, but he's self-absorbed, misogynistic, and insecure as well.

'I didn't want to believe it, ' she writes. She said he then played it off as a joke but she knew he was serious.

"Hearing it changed everything for me", she told NPR reporter Rachel Martin. According to a published report by the media organization, when asked to clear up the discrepancy, the former White House aide said Martin must not have read the book.

Later, inside his club, where he met with Bikers for Trump - who wore Make America Great Again hats and leather jackets - and other supporters, the president responded with a dramatic flourish to a question about whether he felt betrayed by the Manigault Newman - one of the first White House hires, who once enjoyed unfettered access to him in the Oval Office.

But when pressed about her version in the book, Manigault Newman told to NPR: "I heard the tape".

Manigault Newman, who got her big break as a contender on Trump's canceled TV show, The Apprentice, has, in the words of the NY magazine's Jonathan Chait "met a wall of skepticism bordering on reflexive disbelief". Trump starred on the reality-TV show for years.

She admits that she may never be able to get those tapes, but said three unnamed sources described their shocking contents to her. She also says she later concluded that he is a racist and a bigot.

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

Manigault Newman also alleges that allies of the president tried to buy her silence.
