Trump campaign says Omarosa job offer wasn't 'hush money'

Omarosa Put Our Country’s Security At Risk

And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story, that I know the world will want to hear.

Despite lingering concerns about Omarosa's credibility, UNHINGED: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House has successfully captivated the media thanks to her juicy claims, and secretly-recorded tapes of Trump and other administration figures.

The tape, which was played exclusively Monday on "Today", appears to show Trump having no idea that Newman had been dismissed by his Chief of Staff John Kelly.

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

"It's a violation of every protocol, procedure, and just how we do business in government", said Marc Lotter, a former special assistant to the president and former press secretary to Vice President Pence.

Burnett's representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Manigault Newman has now written a book called "Unhinged" - to be released Tuesday - about her White House experiences.

Jacksonville attorney John Phillips posted on social media Saturday that he was representing former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman. A reporter asked Trump "Do you feel betrayed by Omarosa sir?' to which he replied with a smile 'She's a lowlife". "What's Omarosa doing in her prom dress tho?" one person asked while another wrote "This isn't The View, no offense to the view, but you should have worn a business suit or something more appropriate than a cocktail dress if you expect people to take you serious and that you just aren't out for another 15 minutes".

"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".

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.

Manigault Newman also accused Trump of using racial slurs against George Conway, who is half Filipino.

"She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said OK". She recorded the conversation when she was sacked and subsequently released that audio recording.

Because reality TV stars apparently can't stay away from the camera, Omorosa participated in an episode of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress, working with her friends and family, not to mention host Randy Fenoli, to find the one. Since then, the mission of the Situation Room has been to provide up-to-date intelligence and crisis support to the National Security Council and the president.

U.S. President Barack Obama (2nd L) and Vice President Joe Biden (L), along with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House, May 1, 2011.

"Nobody even told me", Trump said on the recording.
