Omarosa says she 'was complicit with this White House deceiving this nation'

CNN host blasts Trump’s anti-racism tweet ‘Remember his record

The White House says the book is "riddled with lies and false accusations".

Omarosa, usually referred to by only her first name, left the White House in December and Sunday's interview coincided with the release of her book, "Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House", detailing her time there.

According to multiple reports, she cites three unnamed sources in "Unhinged" who claim to have heard Trump use the "N-word" repeatedly during the making of The Apprentice.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman claimed to have been complicit with the Trump administration in deceiving America during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday morning.

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

But there are very few particulars that can be verified in her book; many are clearly wrong, such as an inaccurate account of what Trump said during remarks on his second day in office at Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

"I have documentation, a whole treasure-trove of documentation for everything you see in this book", she said. "So yes, I had to protect myself, and I have no regrets about it". 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'.

She alleges that, during the making of USA version of The Apprentice, which Trump fronted for several years, the future president muttered the racial slur "multiple times".

The white supremacist movement is enjoying a greater sense of empowerment under President Donald Trump, he added.

Manigault Newman said in the book that she had not personally heard the recordings.

President Trump took a swipe at onetime aide Omarosa Manigault Newman as he mingled with motorcycle-riding supporters during a rainy afternoon at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

Omarosa Manigault has a book coming out and she's wasting no time to promote it. On the Saturday anniversary of the riot, Trump tweeted, "I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence", which some have interpreted as more waffling, as reported by USA Today.

In another portion of her recording, Manigault asked Kelly if Trump was aware that she was being fired, and Kelly replied that this was a "non-negotiable discussion".
