Trump calls Omarosa Manigault Newman a 'lowlife'

12 August 2018

Before it hit shelves, plenty of people have questioned the veracity of the new tell-all book by former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman.

"Lowlife, she's a lowlife", Trump responded before exiting a platform where he had been asking the bikers for their thoughts on the media. Her book also describes him as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

Manigault Newman, who came to fame on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice" years ago before going to work in his administration, is set to release her expose, "Unhinged", on August 14.

Manigault Newman claims in her upcoming book, "Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House", that Trump pitched the idea of taking his presidential oath on a copy of "The Art of the Deal", according to an excerpt obtained by Slate Magazine on Saturday.

But when pressed about her version in the book, Manigault Newman told to NPR: "I heard the tape".

Manigault Newman was previously best known for her polarizing character on NBC's "The Apprentice". "I had to go through the pain of witnessing his racism with my own eyes, and hearing it with my own ears, many times, until I couldn't deny it any longer".

The remarks were a break with comments made during the campaign when the former reality television celebrity vowed that those who had criticized Trump would bend the knee to him. While she doesn't provide direct evidence, she cites three unnamed sources who attest to the existence of the tape.

The White House has rebuked Manigault Newman's book, with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders calling it "riddled with lies and false accusations". At the time, a source familiar with her departure told the Guardian that she had always been uncomfortable defending the Trump administration as the most prominent African American woman in the White House.
