Omarosa Claims Donald Trump Used Racial Slurs in White House

Omarosa Claims Donald Trump Used Racial Slurs in White House

In her forthcoming book, "Unhinged," former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman claims that she saw President Trump chewing up a piece of paper after a meeting with his then-personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Manigault Newman writes in the book, according to the Guardian, that in late 2016 Trump's team held a conference call to discuss possible responses should the tape be made public.

Manigault Newman said she never heard Trump use the word herself, a point that critics of her credibility are certain to seize on.

It had finally sunk in that the person I had thought I had known so well for so long was a racist. "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". Omarosa pans President Trump an unhinged "racist, misogynist and bigot".

She wrote that she worked to get a copy of it and that is why she was sacked from the White House.

"I have the outtakes to "The Apprentice" where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever", Arnold told the Seattle-based radio station KIRO. That was in November; by December, Manigault Newman was out of the Trump fold.




Conway tweeted this morning that he's not buying Manigault Newman's claim.

More details: Omarosa claims that Trump had a tanning bed installed in the White House residence, per the Post.

Manigault Newman does not specify in her book, which is due to be released on Tuesday, whether she heard Trump using the slur or whether she saw footage of him using it.

"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", Sanders said in a statement.

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. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she wrote, according to the Post.
