  • ‘Meet the Press’ Plays Tape of John Kelly Firing Omarosa Manigault Newman

Omarosa Manigault Newman, the ex-Apprentice contestant who served as the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison a year ago, revealed on Meet the Press Sunday that she had recorded White House Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her.

The audio follows other recordings released on Sunday, which she claimed she made when the White House chief of staff, John Kelly, called her into the Situation Room to fire her.

While the latest recording has Trump indicating he was unaware of her firing, Manigault Newman said on "Today" that he may have instructed Kelly to do it.

"The first time I ever heard Omarosa suggest those bad things about this President are in this book", she said, noting Ms Manigault Newman "is somebody who gave a glowing appraisal of Donald Trump the businessman, the star of the The Apprentice, the candidate and, indeed, the President of the United States".

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".

"They take me into the Situation Room, the doors are locked, they tell me I can't leave and they start to threaten me, put fear in me, to put me under duress", she said.

He added that while it was "not presidential" to attack her, he was doing so because he believes the media will be trying to make her "look as legitimate as possible".

He responded saying that the staff reports to him, not to the president and refused to discuss Trump.

She alleges that Trump has exhibited signs of a "mental decline that could not be denied" and says she went as far as printing out a study linking Diet Coke consumption to dementia and strokes and putting it in his briefing stack.

On Saturday, Trump called Manigault Newman a "lowlife". "Nobody even told me about it". The Post obtained copies of what Manigault Newman said was the job offer and the companion agreement.

Ms Manigault Newman, who knew the president from her days as a star of The Apprentice reality TV show, advised him on African-American issues during the 2016 presidential campaign and went on to become director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison before being fired in December.

The release of a second recording from fired White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has senior officials asking whether she also taped their own conversations with her.

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

Check out the full interview above, complete with the Trump recording.

Mr. Trump is the one who brought her on to the West Wing, where she earned $179,700 a year, according to White House records.

Manigault Newman's purported recordings inside the White House - especially the Situation Room, which is supposed to be one of the most secure locations on Earth - represents a serious breach of security protocol, said Ned Price, a former National Security Council spokesman for the Obama administration. "She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok". The only time Todd pushes back is when she claims that Kelly firing her without involving Trump is somehow illegal.
