Omarosa claims Trump is a racist, used N-word on 'The Apprentice'

Specifically, Omarosa says that she was told by a third party that pollster Frank Luntz heard Trump use the N-word.

On Friday, Manigault Newman insisted that the passage supported her claim, and that an NPR interviewer who confronted her over the discrepancy had merely not read the book. Now will you say yes to me? In her book, to be released on Tuesday, Newman does not specify whether she heard Trump use the slur or whether she saw footage of him using it. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she wrote, according to the Post.

Her tumultuous time in the White House and very public break with Trump have caused many critics to question her credibility and the veracity of her claims.

But the White House is dismissing the ex-reality show contestant as a "disgruntled" former employee lying to make a buck.

"By that point, three sources in three separate conversations had described the contents of this tape", she said.

She described him as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure, claimed there are tapes of him using racial slurs while filming The Apprentice and warned that he had shown signs of "mental decline that could not be denied".

FILE - In this February 14, 2017, file photo, Omarosa Manigault-Newman, then an aide to President Donald Trump, watches during a meeting with parents and teachers in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington. "Would you look at this George Conway article?" the president is quoted in Unhinged. "The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous, particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House-December 12, 2017". I rejected what other people said about him because they didn't know him like I did.

Sanders tellingly didn't claim that Trump has never said the N-word in her press statement. She was sacked in December 2017 after what White House aides said were multiple instances of misconduct, including misuse of a vehicle service and attempting to photograph her wedding on White House grounds.

None of that is true, according to the White House.

The New York Times pointed out that Omarosa makes factual errors throughout the book, "such as asserting that an aide who worked on the transition into the White House was brought in months later". In the new book, she writes that she believes White House Chief of Staff John Kelly wanted to get rid of her because it was known she was trying to verify the tapes.

Passantino did not respond to a request for comment.

On Saturday, reporters asked Trump if he felt betrayed by Manigault Newman.

The hush money offer was reportedly offered by Trump campaign advisor and daughter-in-law Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump. She's criticizing the media for giving her a platform.
