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

"It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media will now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the President during her time in the administration", Sanders continued.

In the latest episode of "We already knew", excerpts from ousted White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman's upcoming book indicate that she has tapes of President Donald Trump using the n-word and other racial slurs, the Guardian reports.

Manigault Newman writes that she personally witnessed Trump using racial epithets about White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband George Conway, who is half Filipino - a claim Conway is now disputing (see below).

The former reality television star reportedly writes that after she was sacked by chief of staff John KellyJohn Francis KellyMORE in December, she received a call from Trump campaign adviser and presidential daughter-in-law, Lara Trump. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.

She also reportedly said she believes rumors Trump was caught on tape using the n-word while filming "The Apprentice" - though she does not say she heard it herself.

Manigault-Newman quotes Trump as saying: "Would you look at this George Conway article?"

"By that point", Manigault Newman writes, "three sources in three separate conversations had described the contents of this tape".

Manigault-Newman's book "Unhinged" hits shelves next week. She could still be salty after the previous bout of negative press, which detailed that she had brought her 39-person wedding party for an unannounced White House photo shoot that saw guests seeking selfies in the Oval Office and Rose Garden.

'Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole'.
