Kellyanne Conway appeared on ABC to continue the defense of the White House against Omarosa's new notebook on Tuesday, and his claims that the president used racial slurs

Kellyanne Conway is responding to Omarosa Manigault Newman, claiming that the former White House employee invents stories to sell books.

Conway appeared on ABC to continue the defense of the White House against Omarosa's new notebook on Tuesday, and his claims that the president used racial slander.

"The first time I heard Omarosa suggest those horrible things about the president are in this book," Conway told Jonathan Karl.

"I have worked with this man for more than two years without interruption, never, never once, I heard him use racial slurs about anyone."

"I also did not hear Omarosa complain about having done that, so the only thing that has changed is that he is now selling books."

Conway then claimed that Omarosa "undermined his own credibility". that Donald Trump was 'racist, fanatical and misogynist'.

"This is someone who gave a brilliant assessment of Donald Trump, the entrepreneur, the star of The Apprentice, the candidate and, in fact, the president of the United States," he said.

Conway also mentioned Omarosa's claim that Trump is recorded using the word N while on the set of The Apprentice.

In the book, Omarosa only describes hearing about the tape from anonymous sources.

But then the former reality show contestant seemed to contradict herself during an interview with NPR, in which she claimed to have listened to the tape herself.

Conway referred to the NPR interview while talking about Omarosa's credibility, which since then has tried to clarify herself.

Appearing on Meet the Press on Sunday, Omarosa claimed to have personally listened to the recording after his book was printed.

"Once I heard it for myself, it was confirmed, what I feared most: that Donald Trump is a swindler and has been posing as someone who is really open to the participation of diverse communities," he said.

Conway said he never heard Omarosa claim that the president used racist insults, and said the former White House employee only says it now to sell books.

"But when he talks that way, like he did on this tape, he confirmed that he is really a racist."

Conway also called Omarosa a "tremendous" disappointment and said he should be celebrating his past partnership with Trump.

"I should take credit for all the big gains that this president has made with respect to that low unemployment rate among African-Americans," Conway said.

"But that does not sell books, and that does not solve the scores."

Karl then turned to Conway, taking her by surprise when he asked her to name the most prominent African American high-level on the West Wing staff.

"In the first place, it's not covering the fact that our Secretary of Housing and Urban Development," Conway began, changing the subject by mentioning Ben Carson.

"I'm asking you about the White House staff," Karl interjected. "I'm asking you about the people the president is with every day."

"Well, that's important because he … well, the president works with Secretary Carson every day," Conway said.

Jonathan Karl, of ABC, turned Conway around, taking her by surprise when he asked her to name the most prominent African-American in the West Wing staff.

"Who is on the staff of the White House at this time?" Karl asked again.

"Well, we have Ja & # 39; Ron, who did a fabulous job and has been very involved with Jared Kushner and President Trump in prison reform," he said. & # 39; He has been there since the beginning & # 39;

& # 39; Do you have an office in the west wing? & # 39; Karl asked.

"He has an office in the EOP absolutely, the executive office of the president," Conway replied.

"But not in the west wing," Karl added. "What does that mean to not have a single senior advisor in the west wing whose African-American?"

"I did not say it did not exist," Conway replied.

& # 39; Who is it? & # 39; Karl asked again.

Conway tries to change the subject one more time and affirms that Karl does not cover the unemployment rate among African-Americans.

"I've said that twice in the program, so do not say we're not covering it," the ABC presenter responded.

Karl later clarified that none of the 55 best employees of the White House are African-American.
