Former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman has revealed that the staff working for Donald Trump used the hashtag # TFA # 39; in messages when the president did something & # 39; crazy & # 39;
Manigault Newman, formerly one of Trump's most outspoken black defenders, said that the hashtag was used in reference to Amendment 25 by his family members, & # 39; employees & # 39; and people who work in federal agencies.
Amendment 25 allows for the dismissal of a president who considers himself incapacitated by any type of illness, including a mental illness.
You know, we had a little hashtag, #TFA. Now that I think about it, I'm a bit embarrassed to tell you how often, when I checked the White House text message chains, I saw the TFA hashtag. Twenty-fifth amendment, & # 39; Manigault Newman told MSNBC.

Omarosa Manigault Newman was previously one of the most enthusiastic black supporters of Donald Trump inside the White House
"Every time I did something so crazy, and so crazy, and crazy, when I turned positions from one hour to the next, we just tagged it with TFA and we kept moving."
But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders returned the blow to Sunday's accusations and called the accusations "ridiculous."
"Everyone, including the media, knows that they do not have credibility," Sanders said.
"The idea that this has happened is completely ridiculous and simply shows that she will say and do whatever it takes to try to be relevant.
"It is embarrassing for the press to continue giving it a platform."
Manigault Newman, a former Apprentice star, published a revealing book about her time at the White House last month in which she claimed that the president was mentally "in decline".
The accusations inside the book provoked a furious reaction on the part of Trump, who described it as "vicious, but not intelligent" after its release.
Manigault Newman resigned his position at the Public Liaison Office in December of last year, citing his superiors as "constantly sabotaging his efforts."
Manigault Newman was fired in December 2017 and claimed that her superiors had constantly sabotaged her efforts.
Last month, Manigault Newman released several recordings of conversations between her and the president.
"Wacky Omarosa, who was fired 3 times from the apprentice, was fired for the last time," Trump tweeted last month.
& # 39; She never did, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. The people in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her, but I heard …
He continued: & # 39; … really bad things. Unpleasant for people and would constantly miss meetings and work. When General Kelly came on board, he told me she was a loser and nothing but trouble. I told her to try to solve it, if possible, because she only said BIG things about me, until she was fired!
Trump then sent a third tweet, saying he regretted having to fight publicly with Manigault Newman.
"Although I know it's not presidential to face a criminal like Omarosa, and although I'd rather not do it, this is a modern form of communication and I know that Fake News Media will work overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible. Sorry! & # 39;
President Trump sent these tweets about Manigault-Newman on August 13 in response to a revealing book published by the former adviser
