Omarosa’s allegations against President Trump have taken new turns. Fox News reports:
Omarosa Manigault Newman’s claims about a recording of President Trump using the “N-word” are being disputed by an ever-growing list of current and former officials, calling into question a key passage in her newly released political tell-all.
Manigault Newman’s claims first surfaced this week in a media blitz to promote the book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” which hit the shelves Tuesday. In interviews and the book, she claimed she confirmed rumors of an old tape from “The Apprentice” in which Trump used the racial slur.
It is unclear at this point whether Manigault Newman ever heard the alleged tape—and whether it exists.
But multiple former and current officials close to the president have denied her claims.
Her allegations remain unsubstantiated, and she is facing major backlash from White House personnel and former Apprentice staff who deny the existence of such a tape.
