Fired White House aide: 'I will not be silenced'

Newman was sacked from her position as Director of Communications at the Office of Public Liaison late previous year - a post that made her the highest-ranking black woman in the White House.

Trump and White House officials have gone on the offensive against Manigault Newman in recent days since she began a tour to promote her new tell-all book "Unhinged".

"If they think I'm being dishonest and sneaky, they could decide I'm a risk", she said.

As her feud with Trump intensified, Manigault Newman's relationship with the black community became the topic of many conversations among African-Americans, especially on social media. I do not have a tape, never have made a tape, and have never played a tape for Omarosa or anyone else that has my president saying anything whatsoever.

Faced with Manigault Newman's tapes, Trump must be wondering what other staffers will take with them when they walk out the door.

But on Tuesday, he ratcheted up the war of words - to a level of nastiness rarely seen, even from a president who has shown he does not pull punches when insulting his critics.

In April 2004 Manigault Newman was set to sit down with Kimmel on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!".

The White House has acknowledged error in its false claim that President Donald Trump created three times as many jobs for African-Americans than President Barack Obama. The White House is anxious that Omarosa has dozens of other tapes, that other staffers have tapes, and that the Apprentice tape will come out, "and on top of all those, we uncovered this tape today of the president using all kinds of N-words, N-words galore", Kimmel said.

"Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!" he added.

Specifically, the former White House aide called out the time the first lady wore a pink Gucci "pussy-bow" blouse after the Access Hollywood tape came out. "How dare he!" Democrat Frederica Wilson said yesterday during an interview on CNN.

Of course, it's still not clear why she would say Trump said the word if it were not real.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., called the language used by Trump "unbecoming of a President of the United States". Manigault Newman claims to have asked President Trump shortly after the shoving incident.

Conway said that she has never heard Trump use a racial slur and that Manigault Newman never relayed concerns to her about hearing one.

"If you start the clock on Election Day, Trump's first 20 months slightly outperformed the beginning of Obama's second term in African-American employment growth", said Ernie Tedeschi, who served as an economist in Obama's Treasury Department.

The 44-year-old also referenced when Melania wore the 'I Really Don't Really Care, Do U?' jacket during a trip to the Texas Border facility - a time when the president enacted a "zero tolerance" immigration policy.
