When asked on "Meet the Press" how often she made recordings during her time working for President Donald Trump, Omarosa said: "This is a White House where everybody lies. you have to have your own back".

Omarosa Onee Manigault-Newman's new tell-all "Unhinged; An Insider's Account of the Trump White House" has been described as being "riddled with lies".

Donald Trump has responded to allegations he is a "racist" and tapes exist of him repeatedly using "the N-word" by calling his accuser a "low-life".

Manigault Newman said in the book that she had not heard the recording, but Sunday she told host Chuck Todd that, after the book closed, she heard the recording. "I heard his voice as clear as you and I are sitting here", she said.

Manigault Newman was previously best known for her polarizing character on NBC's "The Apprentice" in 2004. In the interview, LeBron said that Trump was trying to create division through sports Omarosa updated his statement with a PR savviness that only a reality TV star turned politician could truly possess. Kellyanne Conway said on ABC's This Week that "the first time I ever heard Omarosa suggest those bad things about this president are in this book".

Now, Manigault Newman insists that her former mentor and boss is a "racist".
