Former White House aide says she recorded sacking to ‘protect herself’

Former White House aide says she recorded sacking to ‘protect herself’

U.S. President Donald Trump assailed a former adviser on Monday, calling Omarosa Manigault Newman "Wacky Omarosa", after she disclosed, for the second day in a row on national television, secret tape recordings she made at the White House.

'Wacky Omarosa [Manigault], who got fired three times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time.

Manigault-Newman cut the interview with Guthrie short, but not before stating that her book's title, "Unhinged", refers to Trump, who she believes is not "mentally competent" for the role of president.

"She's certainly violating national security regulations, which I think have the force of law", Giuliani said.

After declaring dubiously last Friday that she has tapes of Trump saying the "n-word," Omarosa appeared Sunday on NBC's Meet The Press to dish more about her brief, but tumultuous time at the White House.

The former White House staffer detailed her claim in her forthcoming book, writing that the offer was a way to keep her from speaking out. "I heard his voice as clear as you and I are sitting here", she said. She was vicious, but not smart. "The fact that she was recording a conversation in there, really, raises alarm bells in the minds of people who have worked in that room".

During the recording, which was aired exclusively on NBC's Today Show Monday morning, Trump appears to be surprised that she had been dismissed by Chief of Staff John Kelly and can be heard saying: "Nobody even told me about it".

"Wacky Omarosa [Manigault], who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time", President Donald Trump, 72, tweeted on August 13.

Omarosa, the former "Apprentice" contestant who became a White House aide, was one of Trump's loyalists, but she has now turned round to say Trump, "doesn't even know what's happening in his White House".

But they showed enough against one of the league's top sides to suggest they should be competitive again this season. Mauricio Pochettino has been pathetic this summer in the transfer window and signed not a single player.

Manigault-Newman was sacked by Chief of Staff John Kelly past year.

"Yes, I was complicit." said Manigault Newman, who was the highest-ranking black employee in the White House.

"The Situation Room is the inner-most sanctum of a secure campus", he said, describing the breach as part of a culture of disregarding security protocols in the Trump White House.

Spicer rebutted Manigault Newman's claim that he signed a non-disclosure agreement and called her assertion that he was paid hush money "false". "I patterned myself after him when I went on "The Apprentice" to try to win the opportunity to run one of his companies but the president, he's different than the person I met back in 2003". She did not play that recording on the show.

Seven months after Omarosa Manigault Newman departed the Trump administration under a cloud, the White House struggled on Sunday to identify any African-American serving in a senior role in the West Wing.

He continued: 'Then on top of that, her character and her integrity have been impugned beyond measure. "God [expletive]. I don't love you leaving at all".

Former President Barack Obama and other officials meet in the Situation Room. "And you know what John Kelly said about Rob Porter?"

Here's what he said at September 2016 rally in OH (with emphases added): "Don't leave Omarosa - she's a wonderful woman - don't leave".

In the book, she does not say she heard him use the word, or that she heard the tape, but in an interview for NPR radio on Sunday, she said she had actually heard the recording.
