Newman claimed in her new book that a tape of the president existed that featured him saying the n-word. The tape, which was played exclusively Monday on "Today", appears to show Trump having no idea that Newman had been dismissed by his Chief of Staff John Kelly.
"Omarosa? Omarosa what's going on?" As you'll see in the clip below, she eventually settled on an embellished blush Ysa Makino design that, according to the show, was valued at $6,400.
The president tweeted on Monday night that the show's creator Mark Burnett "called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a awful and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa".
"What has happened is that this White House created this monster and it was even before this White House, you know, I would say Donald Trump created his own monster and now the monster.he created the monster in his own likeness and the monster has come back to bite him", Ryan said.
"He knew that John Kelly was going to take me into the 'Situation Room, ' and lock me in there, threaten me, and say that things were going to get ugly for me, and there would be damage to my reputation", Newman said of Donald Trump. "Oh, oh, cheese and crackers, I- I don't love that you are leaving but, but I do love cheese and crackers'".
He said that Newman made up the story about him and that the "fake news" only listened to her because she had turned against him.
The audio tapes released on Monday follow further recordings published on Sunday, which were reportedly recorded in the Situation Room when Ms Manigault Newman was sacked.
"People in the White House hated her", Trump wrote.
"I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have", he added.
Manigault Newman also told Matthews that if special counsel Robert Mueller calls her "again, anything I have I'll share". She had also defended Trump against accusations of racism. "She made it up", Trump tweeted, deriding his former aide as "Wacky and Deranged Omarosa". Mr. Trump seemed to acknowledge that the unseemly fight would have been unusual for most of his 44 predecessors as president of the United States.
One administration official said Monday that there isn't a belief in the White House that Manigault Newman poses a larger national security risk after taping her conversation with Kelly in the Situation Room since she wasn't part of any classified or secret discussions of a national security nature during her time in the West Wing. "I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!" The recordings she has released so far are shocking only because they were created by a White House employee; the content is enlightening but not scandalous. "He doesn't know how to control himself".
During the campaign and throughout her White House service, Manigault Newman was publicly supportive of the president and his policies.
Trump came to office vowing to hire "only the best people" - but has struggled to put a lid on leaks, backbiting and scandal inside his White House.
