Omarosa Claims Trump Repeatedly Used 'N-Word' During 'The Apprentice'

Former contestant on "The Apprentice" and White House aide Omarosa Manigault made a heinous accusation against President Donald Trump, but pollster Frank Luntz contradicted her on social media and said it was an utter lie.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters here in New Jersey, where Trump is on vacation, that the book is "riddled with lies and false accusations".

On Friday, Manigault Newman insisted that the passage supported her claim, and that an NPR interviewer who confronted her over the discrepancy had merely not read the book.

In her book, "Unhinged", she insisted that the reports are true, although she admits she had not personally heard him use the N-word.

Manigault Newman also writes in her book that Trump campaign adviser and daughter-in-law Lara Trump offered her a $15,000-a-month hush-money contract after she was sacked by the White House, the Washington Post reported. "Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole".

It is not the first time Mr Trump has been hit by damaging tapes.

In her tell-all, Omarosa claims that she has recordings of Donald Trump "frequently" using racially offensive words.

After she was sacked, Manigault Newman wrote, she received a call from Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, offering her a job and the monthly contract in exchange for her silence. She says she declined the offer.

In the tome, "Under Fire", the veteran journalist - who had been pals with Omarosa since the latter worked for Al Gore in the '90s - says that Omarosa texted her after she got engaged to John Allen Newman, saying, "I said yes to him!" Omarosa claims Trump used the derogatory terms "flip" and "goo-goo" in regard to Conway, but Conway himself thinks that's "absurd", he tweeted. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.

"Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quoted the president as saying.

Manigault-Newman's book "Unhinged" hits shelves next week. "The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous", wrote Conway, a frequent Trump critic despite his marriage to one of Trump's most consistent supporters, "particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House - December 12, 2017".

"I saw him put a note in his mouth".
