White House press secretary apologizes after false statement about black employment

Rudy Giuliani blasts Omarosa warns Robert Mueller against making Russia probe a 'bigger joke' by having her testify

But Trump, who hired Newman to star on his show "The Apprentice" and then gave her a almost $180,000 job at the White House as his liaison to the African-American community, remained true to his rep as a "counter-puncher".

Trump had already branded "Omarosa" - as she is commonly known in America - a "lowlife" after she released a recording of her firing by chief of staff John Kelly, seemingly recorded in the White House Situation Room.

She recalls her time working for Trump in the book Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House, released yesterday. "I had a blind spot where it came to Donald Trump".

"There's a lot of corruption that went on both in the campaign and in the White House and I'm going to blow the whistle on all of it", Manigault Newman said.

Patton then describes having a conversation with Trump about the alleged tape: "I said, 'Well, sir, can you think of anytime this might have happened?' and he said, 'No'". "And I think that all Americans should be concerned when the President of the United States is showing mental decline, lack of impulse control and he's downright mean", she said. And despite the variety of responses criticising Trump's use of the word "dog" - which included tweets from republican senators - the president's original tweet has still been favourited over 81,000 times.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted Tuesday that the president's insults were not racially motivated, saying: "This has absolutely nothing to do with race and everything to do with the president calling out someone's integrity".

Carlo Allegri/ReutersOmarosa Manigault claims President Donald Trump considered getting sworn in on his book, "The Art of the Deal", instead of the Bible.

She writes that Trump and his campaign were "eager for my help" and she wanted to experience working on a campaign at a "high level".

Seven current and former White House aides offered differing stories about the White House agreement, indicative of the inconsistent standard with which it was applied.

Donald Trump is confronting renewed allegations that a recording exists of him using the n-word during the production of The Apprentice.

"It's the greatest business book of all time", Trump said, according to Manigault-Newman. The former Apprentice contestant also wrote that Melania and Donald's relationship is seriously on the rocks: "In my opinion, Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce him".

Pete Souza, the official White House photographer during the Obama years, has carved out a new role for himself he seems to be enjoying nearly as much as taking photographs: trolling Donald Trump. "He is embarrassed", Pierson, now a senior adviser on the Trump re-election campaign, says during a phone conversation with Manigault-Newman and another Trump aide, HUD official Lynne Patton.
