White House says Omarosa claim of Trump racism is ‘false’

The Guardian says that in her memoir, Manigault Newman calls Mr. Trump a racist who uttered the "n-word" repeatedly during the taping of his NBC show "The Apprentice", prior to his presidency, and she claims that there is a recording of his use of the slur. She also insists that she heard Trump using epithets about George Conway, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband.

The hush money offer was reportedly offered by Trump campaign advisor and daughter-in-law Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump.

The Guardian had published details from Unhinged ahead of the book's release on August 14 - details that EW can confirm.

"It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist", she wrote, according to The Guardian.

Over the course of the past two years, actor Tom Arnold has continued to allege that tapes exist of Donald Trump using racist language on the set of his TV show The Apprentice.

Omarosa Manigault told NPR that hearing Donald Trump say the n-word on tape "changed everything for me".

After the "Access Hollywood" tape leaked in 2016, rumors mounted that there is unaired footage on "The Apprentice" of Trump making derogatory statements about women and minorities.

We last heard from Manigault Newman when she was reportedly escorted from the White House premises after she was terminated-the White House claimed she was leaving to pursue other opportunities (such as writing her new book, in which she describes witnessing the president in "mental decline"). "The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous", wrote Conway, a frequent Trump critic despite his marriage to one of Trump's most consistent supporters, "particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House - December 12, 2017".

The offer was refused because of a nondisclosure agreement that would silence Manigualt Newman from commenting about Trump and his family. She also calls her former boss a "racist, misogynist and bigot", and says one of the reasons she was sacked was because it was known she was trying to acquire the Apprentice tape. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.
