Over the course of the past two years, actor Tom Arnold has continued to allege that tapes exist of Donald Trump using racist language on the set of his TV show The Apprentice.
In her book, "Unhinged", she insisted that the reports are true, although she admits she had not personally heard him use the N-word.
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. Using the N-word wasn't just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'. That was in November; by December, Manigault Newman was out of the Trump fold. Based on previews of the book, it sounds like she mainly enforces things the public already knew about Trump, like his racism.
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.
At the time, an early Apprentice producer took to Twitter to say "there are far worse" behind-the-scenes tapes from the show.
Newman claims she was sacked after coming close to get her hands on the tape said to contain the racist slurs, which Apprentice producers have refused to release for contractual reasons. "F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo".
In the tome, "Under Fire", the veteran journalist - who had been pals with Omarosa since the latter worked for Al Gore in the '90s - says that Omarosa texted her after she got engaged to John Allen Newman, saying, "I said yes to him!"
Manigault Newman calls Mr. Trump is a "racist, misogynist and bigot" in her book, according to the Washington Post.
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. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.
