'Racist' Donald Trump 'used N-word,' says ex-White House aide

'Racist' Donald Trump 'used N-word,' says ex-White House aide

(CNN)Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former White House aide and reality TV star, claims in her forthcoming book that President Donald Trump's re-election campaign offered her a lucrative contract in exchange for her signature on a strict non-disclosure agreement after her ouster from the administration previous year, according to an excerpt quoted in The Washington Post.

Sanders also says, "It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks".

In her book, "Unhinged", she insisted that the reports are true, although she admits she had not personally heard him use the N-word.

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

While discussing her sudden dismissal from the White House, Newman wrote, "It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist".

One of the claims receiving a lot of attention (although not confirmed) is that there is a tape of Donald Trump repeatedly saying the word "nigger" while on the set of his NBC show "The Apprentice".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaks during the daily press briefing at the White House, Tuesday, May 1, 2018, in Washington.

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.

George Conway called the claim "ridiculous", tweeting, "The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous, particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House-December 12, 2017".

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. The remarks caused an outcry, and some Republican lawmakers revoked their endorsement of him.

"I have the outtakes to "The Apprentice" where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever", Arnold told the Seattle-based radio station KIRO.
