Trump has responded with characteristic classlessness and racism, calling her a "dog".

"We have a lot to lose right now", Manigault Newman said on MSNBC's "Politics Nation," referencing Trump's appeal to African-American voters during the 2016 campaign.

Since her firing by Chief of Staff John Kelly in December, the most senior Black aide in the White House is Ja'Ron Smith, special assistant to the president for domestic policy.

Manigault Newman, one of the only African-American women to have held a role in the Trump administration, was sacked in December by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, allegedly for misusing the White House vehicle service.

It's not just audio recordings.

"I believe he wants to start a race war in this country", she added.

Matthew Chapman is a video game designer, science fiction author, and political reporter from Austin, TX.

Manigault Newman interjects quickly, "Oh, God no". She has accused the president of being a racist. Clearly, if you come on board the campaign, like, we can't have-we've got to"-Omarosa Manigault Newman: "Oh, god, no". She made it up".


Manigault Newman was director of communications for a White House office that networks with various constituency groups until she was sacked last December by chief of staff John Kelly, citing "significant integrity issues".

In the lead-up to the publication of her book, the 41-year-old has been making waves with claims she has tapes from within the White House.

Harder also tried to stop the release of the book Fire and Fury: Inside the White House.

"Not such a good week for the president", the comedian said. However, since his run for presidency, the commemorative plaque has repeatedly been vandalized, with the most recent scandal having seen a man reducing the star to rubble with a pickaxe that had been hidden in a guitar case.

"And as you know in "Unhinged" I assert that he is in mental decline and that was in full display when he was attacking me over and over again and all of those tweets and then he wanted to sick his entire legal team on me and my publisher", she charged.

As Emily Stewart wrote for Vox, "The portrait Manigault-Newman paints of the Trumps' marriage is full of petty insults and one-upmanship".

On Sunday, Manigault Newman answered in the affirmative when asked by Sharpton if she had more of her own tapes.
