The idea this ever happened is completely ridiculous and just further shows the she will say and do anything to try and be relevant.
Manigault Newman made the recording during a communications staff and press shop meeting after Trump interrupted and started "rambling from topic to topic, none of it makes sense".
Newman confirmed, then explained that Trump "was so upset" with Behar because the View co-host "was constantly in his face and in Melania's face".
In the tape, Trump can be heard accusing Hillary Clinton of colluding with the Russians ahead of the 2016 election. "I wouldn't, I don't think I'd want to be a terrorist right now", Trump said on the recording, eliciting laughter from the people he was with.
President Donald Trump drew laughs from some of his aides as he joked about what a "rough business" terrorism is while discussing an ambush in Niger that left four USA soldiers dead a year ago, according to a covert recording released Monday.
"You know, Hillary Clinton was robbed", Manigault Newman said as the audience cheered.
"They were laughing because he's like making light of the situation, he's saying, "Well I wouldn't want to be a terrorist", she said, "but it's not a laughing matter we lost four American soldiers and four of our allies, the Nigerien troops that we were fighting alongside".
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, D-Miami Gardens, who was in the vehicle when Trump called Myeshia Johnson and sharply criticized him for his comments to the widow, was upset when she learned of Trump's latest comments. She didn't say specifically who else in the administration used the notation.
Since the publication of her book, she has released a number of other recordings from her time in the White House, including her firing in December 2017 and a conversation with Trump after her firing in which he expressed shock that she was let go.
Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Florida Democrat who was with Myeshia Johnson during the condolence call, also accused Trump of telling the widow that her husband "knew what he was getting into".
"Oh, he's watching", she said before waving to the camera, "Hi, Donald". "He wants to make sure I stay silent".
