Omarosa’s White House recordings fuel Trump woes

Wednesday, 15 Aug, 2018

Omarosa married Newman - her second husband - at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., where she walked down the aisle in a lace pink dress, all while she was employed at the White House. But Manigault Newman said he "probably instructed General Kelly to do it".

"I can't guarantee anything", Sanders said at the press briefing Tuesday afternoon when asked if she could assure the American people that they'd never hear a recording of Trump saying the N-word, which Omarosa claims exists.

It's understood that during her time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Omarosa - the former White House liaison to black voters - secretly recorded a number of conversations with Trump that allegedly include his saying a number of derogatory terms - including a racial slur.

Omarosa claimed the person who has the tape with a recording of Trump using racial slurs belonged to someone from the production staff of "The Apprentice".

The mere fact that President Trump has gone on a rabid offensive against Manigualt-Newman may lend some credence to the legitimacy of her claims.

Trump has threatened legal action against book authors and other perceived adversaries in the past but has not followed through on many occasions.

"I never signed that draconian NDA that they presented to me when I walked into the White House", she told PBS NewsHour anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff.

What's in the Omarosa tapes?

"I don't believe that I have violated, but I will leave it to the lawyers to sort it out", she told MSNBC. In the book's beginning, she confirms that someone else confirmed to her that Trump repeatedly used the n-word on the set of The Apprentice.

Manigault Newman also speculates about the "pussy bow" blouse Melania wore at one of the presidential debates in 2016, which took place right after the leak of the notorious "Access Hollywood" tape in which Trump made lewd comments about women.

When she was a contestant on the reality television programme The Apprentice Mr Trump had what must now seem like the pleasure of firing her.

Months after the wedding, Politico reported that Omarosa brought her bridal party of 39 to the White House following her ceremony for a photo shoot in the Rose Garden and West Wing. It's clear now that those rumors were always being circulated by Omarosa and her alone.

Publicly, White House officials have looked to attack Manigault Newman's character as they seek to knock down her most salacious accusations. Not that Melania doesn't have compassion for immigrant children; I'm sure she does. She wore that jacket to hurt Trump, setting off a controversy that he would have to fix, prolonging the conversation about the administration's insensitivity, ruining the trip itself, and trying to make sure that no one asked her to do something like that again. She also declined to discuss details of her interview with special counsel Robert Mueller's office, which she confirmed in a separate interview Tuesday.
