Omarosa claims Trump is a racist, used N-word on 'The Apprentice'

Donald Trump used the n-word during production of The Apprentice season one, according to excerpts from Omarosa's new book that will be released Tuesday. Now free from the Trump administration, she is opening up in a tell-all book that reportedly claims the president is keeping a secret tanning bed inside the historic residence. She also insists that she heard Trump using epithets about George Conway, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband.

'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'.

On Friday, Manigault Newman insisted that the passage supported her claim, and that an NPR interviewer who confronted her over the discrepancy had merely not read the book.

It is not the first time Mr Trump has been hit by damaging tapes.

Omarosa Manigault, right, walks past President Donald Trump during a meeting on healthcare in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, Monday, March 13, 2017. Omarosa claims Trump used the derogatory terms "flip" and "goo-goo" in regard to Conway, but Conway himself thinks that's "absurd", he tweeted.

The offer was refused because of a nondisclosure agreement that would silence Manigualt Newman from commenting about Trump and his family. 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.

Incredibly, this person - who shall remain nameless - picked up the phone.

But, as NPR reported, the very section that Manigault told Martin to read actually was the part that contradicted her claims.

Omarosa's self-interest and credibility issues are an asterisk lingering over her account of her role as a Trump aide, and as Washington Post points out, the book is littered "unverified accusations".

"Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations", White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said, according to The New York Times.

"He hated him. He never explained why, but now I believe it was because Obama was black".
