Omarosa Manigault Newman, former director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison of Donald Trump's White House, is the latest since-estranged associate to secretly record the president while in the White House, according to a report from The Daily Beast.
Sanders also says, "It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks". From claiming she was contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to claims that she was offered hush money payments, this book is full of bombshell claims.
The Guardian had published details from Unhinged ahead of the book's release on August 14 - details that EW can confirm. When she returned to reality TV, appearing on CBS' "Celebrity Big Brother", Manigault Newman said she wouldn't vote for Mr. Trump again "in a million years - never".More news: Beef Between Cam Newton And Kelvin Benjamin Seems to Have Escalated

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to questions about Manigault Newman's soon-to-be published book, which, according to the Guardian, contains allegations that Mr. Trump used racial slurs before and during his presidency. She cites three unnamed sources who say that he has been caught on mic on the set of "The Apprentice" using the "N-word", but the White House quickly pushed back on her tome and the publicity surrounding it.
Manigault Newman's tenure in the White House was marred by drama and intrigue; she generated a series of negative headlines for the administration, including when she attempted to host a photo shoot for her wedding on White House grounds. "Would you look at this George Conway article?" the president is quoted in Unhinged. "He'd said it multiple times throughout the show's taping during off-camera outtakes, particularly during the first season of The Apprentice". "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book. "Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole". Omarosa claims Trump used the derogatory terms "flip" and "goo-goo" in regard to Conway, but Conway himself thinks that's "absurd", he tweeted.
The shocking claims are made in a new memoir, called Unhinged, by Newman, who was the most senior African American member of the Trump administration, until she was dismissed last December.
