BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) — The Latest on the new book by new book by former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman (all times local):
Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman claims in a new book that she saw President Donald Trump behave “like a dog off the leash” at Mar-a-Lago events without his wife, first lady Melania Trump.
It’s one of a long list of scandalous claims contained in her new book, “Unhinged,” which is set to come out Aug. 14. The Associated Press purchased an early copy.
In the book, Manigault Newman also claims that after she turned down a “senior position” on Trump’s 2020 campaign for $15,000 a month, which included a stringent non-disclosure agreement, she received a “flurry” of letters from attorneys representing the president telling her to “stay silent about Trump, or else.”
The White House has already slammed the book as “riddled with lies and false accusations.”
The White House is slamming a new book by ex-staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman, calling her “a disgruntled former White House employee.”
The Guardian newspaper reports that in the memoir, Manigault Newman labels Trump a “racist” and claims she’s been told there are tapes of him using the N-word repeatedly while filming “The Apprentice” reality series on which she appeared.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement Friday, “Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous,” Manigault-Newman’s book is “riddled with lies and false accusations.”
Sanders says, “It’s sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks.” She’s criticizing the media for giving her a platform.
