Ex-aide states that Trump used N-word during & # 039; The Apprentice & # 039; recording

Omarosa Manigault Newman writes in his incendiary new book "Unhinged" that Trump was surprised by the microphone uttering the racial insult "several times" during the performance of his successful program "The Apprentice" before his presidential career, and that there are tapes to demonstrate that.

While she does not write that she herself heard Trump use the taboo language, she quotes three anonymous sources and adds that she experienced "really terrible things" with Trump, according to The Guardian, who obtained a copy of the book before its publication next week.

She also claims to have personally witnessed the president use racial epithets, including "Flip" and "goo-goo" to describe the husband of White House counselor, Kellyanne Conway, George Conway, who is half Filipino.

Both terms are considered racial slurs for Filipinos.

In the book, Manigault Newman makes the astounding accusation that he was offered, and refused, a $ 15,000 contract per month of Trump's campaign to remain silent after his unceremonious dismissal last December, according to extracts obtained by The Washington Post.

The contract was for an "outreach to diversity" work for the campaign, and it came with a proposed non-disclosure agreement that would prohibit Manigault Newman from commenting on Trump or his family, the Post reported.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters here in New Jersey, where Trump is on vacation, that the book is "plagued with lies and false accusations."

"It's sad that a disgruntled former employee of the White House is trying to take advantage of these false attacks, and even worse that the media now give him a platform, after not taking it seriously when he only had positive things to say about the president. during his time in administration, "Sanders said.

Manigault Newman, former apprentice star, was once one of Trump's most important supporters during his campaign. She served as communications director of the White House public liaison office before her dismissal last December.

She writes that before her departure "she had finally sunk in that the person she had thought she had known for so long was actually a racist." Using the word N was not just the way she talks, but more disturbing. he thought of me and the African-Americans as a whole. "

Trump has faced accusations of racism and misogyny for years.

Weeks before the 2016 elections, an "Access to Hollywood" film came to light, in which Trump was heard bragging about taking over the genitals of women. The comments caused protests, and some Republican lawmakers revoked their support for him.

At that time, an early Apprentice producer took to Twitter to say "there are worse" behind the cameras of the program's tapes.

Manigault Newman, who reportedly copied his talks at the White House, is expected to appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.
