White House says Omarosa claim of Trump racism is 'false'

Omarosa - who briefly worked for the Trump Administration - claims in her upcoming book, "Unhinged", she witnessed Trump use racial epithets in talking about the husband of White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway.

The former Trump administration staffer and "The Apprentice" contestant told NPR that she had heard the tape directly, calling it a major factor that changed her opinion of the president, despite the fact that her own memoir says she was only told of the recording.

The contract was for a "diversity outreach" job for the campaign, and came with a proposed non-disclosure agreement that would bar Manigault Newman from commenting about Trump or his family, the Post reported.

The White House issued a statement on Friday that slammed Unhinged, the new book from Omarosa Manigault, as being "riddled with lies and false accusations".

Sharing her thoughts on Trump after quitting, Newman, who did not hear Trump use the N-word herself, continued: 'It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist.

"By that point", Manigault Newman writes, "three sources in three separate conversations had described the contents of this tape".

Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" rocked the West Wing when it hit shelves in January and caused Trump's inner circle to sever ties with Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist. "F-king FLIP! Disloyal! F-king Goo-goo". She also calls her former boss a "racist, misogynist and bigot", and says one of the reasons she was sacked was because it was known she was trying to acquire the Apprentice tape.

Manigault-Newman quotes Trump as saying: "Would you look at this George Conway article?"

"They all told me that President Trump hadn't just dropped a single N-word bomb", Omarosa writes. It said she would do "diversity outreach", among other things, for the campaign, according to her account.

Conway tweeted this morning that he's not buying Manigault Newman's claim. Further bolstering the likelihood of this claim the fact President Trump's longtime bodyguard Keith Schiller was offered a similar amount from the Republican National Committee after he left the White House.

"I saw him put a note in his mouth". Since Trump was ever the germophobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she wrote, according to the Post.
