Don't expect Donald Trump to invite Omarosa Manigault-Newman back to the White House for some tea and cookies any time soon.

Reports of the bombshell allegations in the book against Trump caught fire this week, including her calling him a "racist", "misogynist", and a "bigot" alongside accounts of him using a racial slur on the set of The Apprentice, and eating a piece of paper in the Oval Office. "I said, 'Instead of the Bible?'" she claims to have said.

"On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said - yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant - and when he'd said them".

Trump was responding to a question from the press pool about Manigault Newman's tell-all memoir that was announced this week. While she doesn't provide direct evidence, she cites three unnamed sources who attest to the existence of the tape.

Frank Lampard stunned as Leeds smash four goals at Derby
The reprieve was only temporary and two goals in four minutes swung the game decisively in the visitors' favour. We went into the game under no illusions and knew it would be hard for us.

This may be just the beginning of a brewing frenemy feud between Manigault-Newman and Trump.

She has since referred to the administration as a "plantation", claimed she was ostracized for being black, and vowed she would never again vote for Trump. But that offer came along with a stringent nondisclosure agreement that was as "harsh and restrictive" as she had seen while working in television.

Manigault Newman worked in the White House for almost a year as an assistant to the president and the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison. She says she had seen him acting inappropriately at numerous events he attended without his wife at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, including birthday parties, fundraisers and golf tournaments.

In her book, Manigault Newman also says the former Apprentice host showed signs of a "mental decline that could not be denied" and added that he "loved conflict, chaos and confusion; he loved seeing people argue or fight".

But now, Manigault Newman, who was a special liaison at the White House with the African American community, says Trump is trying to start a "race war".
