Ex-Trump aide Omarosa releases recording of White House firing

Manigault Newman landed in Washington D.C. on Saturday to kick off a publicity tour for her soon to be released book, "Unhinged", that is chock-full of explosive - though unverified - details about life in the White House. The woman, who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels, had claimed she slept with the then-future-president a decade earlier.

"Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations".

Many across social media are giving Omarosa Manigault Newman the virtual side-eye over her seemingly contradictory statements about Donald Trump's use of the N-word.

And she claimed that the Trump campaign offered her a job in exchange for signing a restrictive non-disclosure agreement to keep her from talking critically about her time with the campaign and the White House.

Manigault told NBC host Chuck Todd that she took that as a threat.

"I was in the room when he said inappropriate things, but [Trump] has never said the N-word in my presence, ever", Manigault said Sunday, adding he "probably has said some very derogatory things about me".

"We're going to talk to you about leaving the White House", Kelly tells Newman in the recording. "So yes, I had to protect myself, and I have no regrets about it".

Jorginho scores penalty as Chelsea win and Crystal Palace spoil Fulham's return
Vertonghen and Alli struck either side of Joselu's equaliser for the Magpies with all three goals coming in the first 18 minutes. Arrizabalaga 7, Azpilicueta 7, Rudiger 7, David Luiz 8, Alonso 6, Jorginho 8, Kante 8, Barkley 5, Willian 7, Pedro 8, Morata 5.

NBC showed the agreement on air, which included a strict non-disparagement agreement that would have prevented Manigault Newman from demeaning or disparaging Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, the campaign, their families and businesses. In a subsequent interview, she changed her story to say that she had heard Trump utter that word, a reversal that highlighted her not-exactly-sterling level of credibility.

Todd pointed out that even after Charlottesville and Trump's equivocation in condemning the far-right demonstrators, the author still came out to defend her longtime boss.

But now, Manigault Newman, who was a special liaison at the White House with the African American community, says Trump is trying to start a "race war". She tempers the claim by stating that she hadn't heard the tapes themselves but that she learned about the recordings from more than one of her contacts.

"Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House" is set to be published by Gallery Books on August 14.

"The Situation Room is the inner-most sanctum of a secure campus", he said, describing the breach as part of a culture of disregarding security protocols in the Trump White House.

"Yes, I was complicit ..." said Manigault Newman, who was the highest-ranking black employee in the White House.
