And she accused Mr Trump of lying to the American people, saying he "doesn't even know what's happening in his White House". Former chief-of-staff Reince Priebus, secretary of state Rex Tillerson and national security adviser HR McMaster have said next-to-nothing about their time in the White House following acrimonious exits. Manigault Newman's controversial allegations, some of which are not verified, have rattled the president and thrust his aides into damage-control mode.

Conway also dismissed Manigault Newman's claims in a tweet.

The president's former TV co-star on The Apprentice also said she has heard audio tape of Trump using the N-word.

As Yahoo! pointed out, receiving money for an appearance could have posed serious ethical concerns for the former White House official, however, Omarosa filmed her segment of Say Yes before Trump's January 2017 inauguration.

"It's interesting that he's trying to silence me. That was one of the goals that I set out to and then get back to my life", she said. She's not below anyone else in the White House.

It's understood that during her time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Omarosa - the former White House liaison to black voters - secretly recorded a number of conversations with Trump that allegedly include his saying a number of derogatory terms - including a racial slur.

In a way, it was.

"What happened?" Trump says on the tape, played on NBC's Today show.

He quickly realized her particular brand of mischief-making narcissism was a ratings bonanza.

Rivera said Trump "always had an affinity and affection for people", including the "flamboyant and charismatic" Omarosa. "Honest Omarosa: she won't backstab - she'll come at you from the front". In her, Trump saw a reflection of himself. "Sounds like she's writing a script for a movie".

His latest attack on Manigault Newman prompted immediate criticism from lawmakers and others. On Monday, she told MSNBC that, if asked, she would give her recordings to the U.S. Special Counsel's Office investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.

In her book, Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House, she said she had not signed a non-disclosure agreement.

Recently, the first lady caused an uproar by wearing a jacket with the insensitive message, "I don't care", to the US-Mexico border, to talk to young children who are separated from their parents.

She did say, however, that "she is going to expose the corruption" that went on in both the campaign and the White House.

He gave her license and invited her into the sacred space of the Oval Office. "I am going to continue to blow the whistle on all of this".

The president has hurled one insult after another at his onetime protegee.

Critics condemned Trump's tweet for what they said were racial and sexist undertones.

"It's disappointing to her that she is lashing out and retaliating in such a self-serving way, especially after all the opportunities given to her by the President", Grisham told the Washington Examiner.

Trump on Tuesday called Manigault Newman, who is African-American, a "dog". "And not just the year that she worked here, but the time that she spent on the campaign trail and I think it's really sad what she's doing at this point".

"The fact that she turned out to be as nefarious and vicious as Trump infuriates him". They create drama, hold news cycles hostage and dribble out tantalizing nuggets.

Now, aides are wondering who else might be using a recording device to capture audio from private conversations.

Mrs Newman has said in interviews that she never signed an agreement when she began working in the White House but it's unclear if she did when she joined the Trump campaign.

During the questioning, Sarah said that she "can't guarantee" that the President never said the word.
