Omarosa says she secretly taped her firing, plays audio

Jonathan Ernst  Reuters Omarosa Manigault

Omarosa Manigault Newman, the fired White House aide seeking publicity for her new memoir about her time in the Trump administration, said in an interview Sunday that the way Chief of Staff John F. Kelly dismissed her involved a "threat" and played an audio recording of Kelly that she said she made in the Situation Room.

On the tape, which Manigault Newman said was recorded in the Situation Room, Kelly can be heard citing "some pretty serious integrity violations" as the reason for her dismissal, and telling Manigault Newman that his decision was not negotiable.

Donald Trump has responded to allegations he is a "racist" and tapes exist of him repeatedly using "the N-word" by calling his accuser a "low-life".

Spicer said Sunday that Kelly treated Manigault Newman with respect by giving her "an opportunity to walk away with her dignity and respect". "They were not offering a real job", she said. She was one of the highest paid employees on the White House staff, given a salary of nearly $180,000 a year.

Newman was the most prominent, high-level black in the West Wing as Trump's director of communications for the White House office of public liaison. Trump blamed the violence on "many sides", rather than condemning the white supremacists who were protesting.

Idris Elba fuels speculation that he’s the next James Bond
Elba, 45, has previously dismissed rumours and said he had not had any discussions with the studio about taking over the role. The latest round of speculation appears to have begun with a report in the Daily Star last week.

She alleges that, during the making of U.S. version of The Apprentice, which Trump fronted for several years, the future president muttered the racial slur "multiple times".

She also said she was inadvertently complicit in covering up Trump's perceived racism.

"Being used by Donald Trump for so long, I was like the frog in the hot water".

She said: 'I was told exactly what Donald Trump said - yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant - and when he's said them. The president lies to the American people. That's downright criminal. If I didn't have these recordings, no one in America would believe me. "No one. So, I protected myself, and I'm so glad I did". Sarah Huckabee stands in front of the country and lies every single day.

Manigault Newman claims she personally witnessed Trump using derogatory language while in the White House. "You have to have your own back or else you'll look back and you'll have 17 knives in your back".
