White House aide says Melania Trump's clothes are chosen to 'punish' Donald

Trump has also retaliated after Manigault Newman claimed she had heard an audio tape of him using racial slurs while they worked on The Apprentice.

"I'm not going to comment", Omarosa answered. "Not only is this flat-out false (I've never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn't even make an effort to call or email me to verify".

Because reality TV stars apparently can't stay away from the camera, Omorosa participated in an episode of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress, working with her friends and family, not to mention host Randy Fenoli, to find the one.

In her new book, Unhinged, Omarosa explained: "It's my opinion that Melania was forced to go to the border that day in June, essentially, to mop up her husband's mess. You can't hire people to work in the most powerful office in the world paid by taxpayers, and then when they turn on you say 'That person's a insane liar, no one should trust them, '" he said.

On CBS Tuesday, Manigault Newman released another audio recording that she said showed campaign workers discussing an alleged recording of Trump using the racial slur. It adds to a narrative of a White House mired in chaos and dysfunction - a storyline Democrats hope will convince exasperated suburban and female voters to support them or at least stay at home.

Pierson's explanation was one in a series of shifting accounts about the Trump campaign's worry over the purported "Apprentice" tape.

The most explosive claim in the book is that tapes exist of Trump using the n-word to describe African-Americans.

Over the course of the past couple weeks leading up to the release of her new book, Unhinged, Omarosa Manigualt-Newman has been announcing bombshell allegation after bombshell allegation, directed exclusively at President Trump and his White House.

Omarosa Manigault Newman's new book comes with an explosive title.

In addition to speaking publicly about her experiences in Trump's White House, Manigault Newman has been releasing audio recordings of conversations and meetings held in the building, including a snippet of one she says is of her telephone conversation with Trump the day after she was sacked in December by White House chief of staff John Kelly. "So she's very well advised to get legal counsel".

Asked if special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, would be interested in any of them, she said, "If his office calls again, anything they want, I'll share".

Trump officials and a number of outside critics denounced the recordings as a serious breach of ethics and security - and White House aides anxious about what else Manigault Newman may have captured in the West Wing.

What perhaps worries the Trump team most is they can't be sure what else she surreptitiously recorded.

His latest attack on Manigault Newman prompted immediate criticism from lawmakers and others.

"She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok".

"Well, that's not true", Manigault Newman says, before continuing: "He goes, how do you think I should handle it and I told him exactly what you just said, Omarosa, which is well, it depends on what scenario you are talking about".

"The president is an equal opportunity person that calls things like he sees it and always fights fire with fire", she said.

Manigault Newman's exit does highlight the lack of diversity among Trump's top aides.

Her official title was communications director for the White House's Office of Public Liaison, but it was never clear what she actually did in that job in the 11 months she held it before Kelly fired her.

If such deals prohibit government staff from revealing all information they learn of at work, the American Civil Liberties Union said "they are unconstitutional and unenforceable". The Trump administration has also reportedly tried to get White House staff to sign similar agreements.
