White House Doubles Down On Omarosa's 'Lack Of Character'

Trump calls Omarosa Manigault Newman 'a lowlife'

He then offers to make it a "friendly departure" and said that she violated some "very serious legal issues" without elaborating on what those were.

She added: "Is General Kelly running this country, or is the president running this country?"

"No ... I, I, Nobody even told me about it", the president responds.

Manigault-Newman was one of Trump's longest-serving associates, "the only person aside from his daughter who'd known and worked alongside him for more than a decade", CNN reported. I didn't know that. "Godda-m it", Mr. Trump said, "I don't love you leaving at all". "Fake news!" He did not say that.

The audio was released as Manigault Newman gears up for the release of her new book, "Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House", which contains several unflattering claims against the President and his staff. Omarosa claims to have multiple recordings of her time in the White House, but numerous claims she has made are unverifiable. Excerpts of the tape were played on air. She said she had recorded the conversation because otherwise no one would believe her.

The book contains a number of explosive claims, including that there are tapes of Trump saying the n-word on the set of his former reality TV show "Celebrity Apprentice". She acknowledges she had never been able to obtain or hear the tapes but said three unnamed sources had described their contents. She complained that Trump is letting down the country.

Greek teen Tsitsipas upsets Djokovic in Toronto - 8/9/2018 8:33:15 PM
Russian Karen Khachanov eliminated American John Isner 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-1) in match that featured no service breaks. Marin Cilic awaits in the quarter-finals, following his speedy defeat of Argentina's Diego Schwartzman.

Trump pushed back against the notion that he was out of the loop on her firing, writing in a second tweet that "when Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems". "They weren't in the room'". The Department of Justice could take steps to prosecute her for that, too, but so far the recordings themselves have been merely embarrassing, not revelatory of national-security secrets.

"There is a complete organization between the two of them", Manigault Newman said of Trump and Kelly.

"Her character and her integrity have been impugned beyond measure", Gidley said in an interview with "Fox and Friends" Monday. I would rarely see her but heard.really bad things.

The former White House aide, who was promoting her new tell-all memoir, told Chuck Todd, "It is hindsight".

Todd asked why she did not come to this conclusion sooner, noting that Trump had said many things over the years that people considered racist, including calling Mexicans "rapists" or saying that "both sides" were to blame for bloodshed during the white nationalist march in Charlottesville last year.

Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer also sounded off on Manigault's claims, telling ANC News they're "completely fictional". He also questioned why Kelly would ever choose to have such a meeting there.
