In Presidential Tweet, Trump Says Former Aide Was 'A Loser' And 'Vicious'

Omarosa’s tape from inside the Situation Room fuels massive freakout over security

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, who kicked off her book tour on Sunday, finally admitted to keeping silent about President Donald Trump's racism.

An excerpt was aired on NBC's "Today Show" Monday.

"While I know it's "not presidential" to take on a lowlife like Omarosa, and while I would rather not be doing so, this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. What happened?" Trump is heard asking.

The recording was played on NBC News's "Meet the Press", where Manigault Newman was interviewed by Chuck Todd.

"I have heard the tape", she said, adding that three sources she talked to for her book relayed the same story.

"You know they run a big operation, but I didn't know it", Trump is heard saying on the tape. I didn't know that. He adds: "I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!"

Her book claims the president uses racial slurs, even toward senior White House aide Kellyane Conway's husband.

The alleged revelation came as Newman released audio she secretly recorded when she was booted from the White House in December.

"No, I know he knows", Manigault Newman replied.

Newman said she would love for the White House to release her personnel files.




Manigault Newman was on "Today" to promote her book "Unhinged", and she said the title refers to Trump.

Ms. Manigault Newman also said there are more tapes to prove Mr. Trump used the N-word about African-American producers during his time on "The Celebrity Apprentice".

After a delay of about 20 minutes, Trump resumed his offensive against her.

This post has been updated. "The other question is, is General Kelly running this country or is the President running this country?"

Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, called Manigault Newman's recording "wildly inappropriate" and suggested she may have violated the law.

"He's being puppeted", she said.

Manigault Newman is drawing fire for the secret recordings she made at the White House, including one of her firing by chief of staff John Kelly in the high-security Situation Room. The Department of Justice could take steps to prosecute her for that, too, but so far the recordings themselves have been merely embarrassing, not revelatory of national-security secrets. In his tweet, he claimed she "begged me for a job, tears in her eyes".

NBC showed the agreement on air, which included a strict non-disparagement agreement that would have prevented Manigault Newman from demeaning or disparaging Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, the campaign, their families and businesses. In the book, Newman describes hearing about the tape but not hearing it herself.

In June, DailyMail.com first reported that Melania had worn a now-infamous $39 Zara jacket emblazoned with the words, 'I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?' as she departed to visit children separated from their families in Texas.
