The Guardian newspaper reports that in the memoir, Manigault Newman labels Trump a "racist" and claims she's been told there are tapes of him using the N-word repeatedly while filming "The Apprentice" reality series on which she appeared.

She questions Trump's mental state, describes him as unstable and portrays him as unable to control his impulses while describing the extensive lengths that staff members have gone to in attempts to keep him in line. Omarosa also claims she heard Donald Trump use a couple of racial slurs in person as well.

Manigault Newman, who is black, is set to release on Tuesday a tell-all book, "Unhinged", which details her time working for Trump during the 2016 campaign and eventual administration.

President Donald Trump has one word to describe former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman: "Lowlife".

But George Conway - who hasn't been shy about criticizing Trump - dismissed the claim as "ridiculous". She was sacked in December 2017 after what White House aides said were multiple instances of misconduct, including misuse of a vehicle service and attempting to photograph her wedding on White House grounds. "It's absurd all around".

The contract was for a "diversity outreach" job for the campaign, and came with a proposed non-disclosure agreement that would bar Manigault Newman from commenting about Trump or his family, the Post reported. When this story initially broke, I didn't think it was worth covering, but two things changed that.

The Washington Post reports that White House aides laughed at the allegation and called it untrue. She subsequently joined the Trump administration as a communications aide.

At the time, an early Apprentice producer took to Twitter to say "there are far worse" behind-the-scenes tapes from the show. I rejected what other people said about him because they didn't know him like I did. "Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quotes the president as saying. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes. And only now that it's gone, do I realize just how heavy it's been.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released an official statement on Friday, calling Manigault-Newman a "disgruntled former White House employee".

On Saturday, reporters asked Trump if he felt betrayed by Manigault Newman. "I wish you continued success".

Manigault Newman, who was famously known to have tried to have her wedding photos shot at the White House and enjoyed relatively unfettered access to Trump as his high paid assistant and a liaison to the African American community, is raising eyebrows with her insider -- yet unverified - accounts of life in the Trump White House.
