Omarosa Contradicts Her Own Book in NPR Interview

Adjust Comment Print

According to the Guardian website, which says it obtained a copy of Manigault Newman's memoir prior to its August 14 publication date, the former Apprentice contestant and later White House communications staffer writes in Unhinged that while she did not personally hear Trump use the N-word she cites three sources who described the contents of the tape.

After she was sacked, Manigault Newman wrote, she received a call from Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, offering her a job and the monthly contract in exchange for her silence. Omarosa also claims she heard Donald Trump use a couple of racial slurs in person as well. "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". She also spoke out about a potential tell-all book and what she really thinks of Trump's tweeting.

Manigault Newman's tenure in the White House was marred by drama and intrigue; she generated a series of negative headlines for the administration, including when she attempted to host a photo shoot for her wedding on White House grounds. However, the Guardian notes that Manigault Newman does not say she has ever heard him say the word, and cites three sources who she does not name.

The shocking claims are made in a new memoir, called Unhinged, by Newman, who was the most senior African American member of the Trump administration, until she was dismissed last December.

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.

"Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quoted the president as saying.

Earlier this week, the Daily Beast reported that Manigault Newman had recorded some of her interactions with the president in the White House. It said she would do "diversity outreach", among other things, for the campaign, according to her account. Omarosa says she rejected the offer. 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. "He hated him. He never explained why, but now I believe it was because Obama was black". "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she wrote, according to the Post.
