Is Melania Trump Making Fashion Choices to Punish the President?

But Trump said the former producer of the show called him to say there was no tape of him using the word.

While Trump could prevail regarding Manigault Newman's time with the campaign, he will be unable to stop her from discussing her time in the White House, Moss said.

Newman claimed in her new book that a tape of the president existed that featured him saying the n-word.

She also said his insults directed at Manigault Newman were not racially motivated.

Manigault Newman was sacked from her job as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison by Trump's chief of staff John Kelly last December. "I'm expecting that they're going to retaliate and so I'm just going to stand back and wait". In a very short period of time, I will get rid of her.

In her book "Unhinged", Ms Omarosa commented on the First Lady's decisions and conduct in the White House.

But Manigault Newman was defiant, telling the Associated Press on Tuesday, "I will not be silenced".

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Omarosa Manigault (R) attend a church service, in Detroit, Michigan, U.S., September 3 2016.

She used her TV appearances to hype up her story of working for Trump, fishing for the best publishing deal, the source said.

Asked how Trump would benefit from a racially divided nation, Manigault Newman said to ask the president. Already she's released a recording of a phone call she got from Trump after she was sacked in December, in which Trump played dumb about it.

In tweets Monday night, Trump denied ever using "such a bad and disgusting word", and his aides have denied having strategized about how to contain the damage if such a tape surfaced.

It might help President Donald Trump in the public eye if he meets with special counsel Robert Mueller to answer questions about Russian Federation and the 2016 election, but as a legal matter, it's hard to tell the goal a meeting would hold, Rep. Pete King said Monday.

'Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!' Her book paints a damning picture of Trump, including her claim that he used racial slurs on the set of his reality show "The Apprentice".

She said: "Taken as a whole, all of her style rebellions have served the same goal".

The White House says Omarosa's book is riddled with lies and false accusations.

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.

"It's come to my attention over the last few months that there's been some pretty, in my opinion, significant integrity issues related to you", Kelly is heard saying, before adding that if she makes it a "friendly departure" then she can "go on without any type of difficulty in the future relative to your reputation".

'This was the first time that, in exchange for dropping a lawsuit, Donald Trump brokered a senior position for me instead.

Faced with a room full of reporters pushing for answers on President Donald Trump's repeated verbal attacks on people of color, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders took a note right from the Commander-in-Chief's own playbook, bashing the media instead.
