"By that point, three sources in three separate conversations had described the contents of this tape". Fully banking off the access she had as the former White House Communications Director for the Office of Public Liaison, one could imagine all of the dirty secrets Manigault-Newman is eager to reveal about the president.
While discussing her sudden dismissal from the White House, Newman wrote, "It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist". Using the N-word wasn't just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'.
Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" rocked the West Wing when it hit shelves in January and caused Trump's inner circle to sever ties with Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist.
Even as aides warned him against it, Trump often spoke to Manigault Newman and invited her to come by the Oval Office, a practice that Kelly eventually curtailed.
The future United States president was caught on mic uttering the racial slur "multiple times" during the making of his reality TV show, and there are recordings that prove it, according to Newman, who offered no proof of her accusation. "I rejected what other people said about him because they didn't know him like I did".
The White House responded to Manigault's book with a scathing statement Friday. Since Trump was ever the germophobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she wrote, according to the Post. She describes Ivanka Trump's involvement in trying to obtain a list of names of people suspected of leaking information about the White House.
Manigault Newman also writes in the book that she was contacted in February by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but does not elaborate on why they called her or what she told them.
Manigault Newman calls Mr. Trump is a "racist, misogynist and bigot" in her book, according to the Washington Post. "I wish you continued success".
The proposed nondisclosure agreement allegedly said Manigault Newman could not make any comments about President Trump or his family; Vice President Pence or his family; or any comments that could damage the president.
