Seth Meyers: Trump Is a 'Racist' for Calling Omarosa a 'Dog'

Omarosa Manigault Newman secretly recorded private conversations with President Donald Trump and in the last week, she has begun to release those tapes to the public.

Manigault-Newman also claims that Trump considered being sworn into office with his book "The Art of The Deal" rather than a Bible, which by tradition previous presidents used for their inaugural oaths.

Manigault Newman, who has painted a damning picture of Trump and alleged there is a videotape of him using a racial slur, told The Associated Press she is not going away. I will not be intimidated.

"Mark Burnett called to say that there are NO TAPES of The Apprentice where I used such a bad and disgusting word as attributed by wacky and deranged Omarosa", Trump tweeted. "Good work by General (John) Kelly for quickly firing that dog!", Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to his chief of staff.

That slam follows a pattern of inflammatory language about women and minorities.

The selection of dates is somewhat unusual because it takes into account job gains or losses before Trump and Obama took office. "I think the idea that you can sit in a room with an employer, never mind a government official, never mind the president of the United States, never mind the Situation Room and not think twice about recording is unpatriotic, disrespectful, wrong and, I mean, I am literally taken aback by the blatant level of disrespect, untrustworthiness and, frankly, the lack of security", Spicer said.

Ryan also claimed that Manigault Newman urged Trump's former press secretary, Sean Spicer, not to call on her during White House briefings.

In her book, "Unhinged", Ms Manigault Newman claims the Trump campaign was aware of the existence of the tape from the "Apprentice" period. She accused him of using his rowdy political rallies to divide, even suggesting Trump is promoting violence.

While Kelly says her infractions would have gotten her court-martialed in the military, "if we make this a friendly departure ... you can look at your time here in the White House as a year of service to the nation and then you can go on without any type of difficulty in the future, relative to your reputation".

Trump’s arbitration case against Omarosa is risky
In her new book Unhinged , she explains that to an outsider, the relationship doesn't appear to be father/daughter. Manigault-Newman writes that she convinced Trump not to pursue the idea, and to never mention it to anyone else.

Ongoing allegations that a tape of Donald Trump using the N-word have resurfaced, after the White House refused to deny that those tapes might exist.

Asked whether she could guarantee such a recording would never surface, Sanders said: "I can't guarantee anything, but I can tell you that the president addressed this question directly".

Lewandowski, speaking at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in Washington, said he had to sign a nondisclosure when he joined a precursor of the Trump campaign in June 2015. "I had a blind spot where it came to Donald Trump".

"Oh, just said that word, didn't I?" In it, Manigault Newman describes the recorded conversation as being a conference call held on October 11, 2016. She said Sunday that she had listened to one after the book closed. Her friendship with Trump eventually secured her a campaign role which paved into a job in the Trump administration as an assistant to the president.

Asked about the pact, Manigault Newman told MSNBC she did not believe she had violated it. A person familiar with the White House response to the investigation said that at no time prior to her departure did the Mueller team request documents related to her or seek an interview with her. The person insisted on anonymity to discuss the investigation.

Trump ratcheted up his rhetoric against Manigault Newman on Tuesday.

Manigault Newman had defended Trump against attacks of racism during his campaign and early presidency.

On May 7 2018, Melania launched her flagship campaign as First Lady, BE BEST, which The White House describes as "an awareness campaign focused entirely around the well-being of children".
