Trump calls ex-'Apprentice' star turned White House aide a 'dog'

  • Omarosa Say Yes to the Dress

Lynne Patton, a Trump campaign aide and assistant to one of the President's sons, told fellow campaign officials on a call in October 2016 that she confronted Trump about the existence of the tape and that he denied it, according to a recording of the call publicly released Tuesday morning by Manigault Newman on CBS.

In her new book Unhinged, Omarosa says "I believe Melania uses style to punish her husband" - citing her infamous 'I really don't care, do u?' jacket as an example. The money comes from either the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee, or the America First PAC, but it's not clear if the payments are in exchange for the former aides' silence. Trump was also listed on an NDA signed by porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with him, though he didn't sign it.

In recent days, Manigault Newman has released audio of her firing by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and of a call from Trump in which he says he did not know about her dismissal.

Manigault Newman says she has more recordings. Trump has long denied being racist and has dismissed a claim made by Manigault Newman that he used a racial slur on the set of "The Apprentice".

One occasion saw Mrs Trump batting her husband away as he went in to hold hands with her.

Manigault Newman has maintained that she has heard a tape of Donald Trump using the n-word while working on the Apprentice.

On Tuesday morning, Trump took his rhetoric a step further, calling her a "dog".

The offer raises fresh question about the ways that White House aides are being offered safe landing spots after they leave. He is also the co-author of How Trump Won: The Inside Story of a Revolution, which is available from Regnery.

The legal action is being filed with the American Arbitration Association, a campaign aide told the Associated Press.

Trump has threatened legal action against book authors and other perceived adversaries in the past but has not followed through on many occasions.

While Trump trades in insults on a near daily basis, deeming Manigault Newman a "dog" was a stunning move.

The photographer has enjoyed jabbing Trump side since before his election and has regularly posted images meant to negatively contrast the Trump administration with former White Houses.

Trump pointed out on Twitter yesterday that Manigault Newman had signed an earlier agreement. 'And why wouldn't we?' She added: "We've all signed them in the West Wing'".

Today, the individual who Omarosa confirmed to me as having played the second-hand audio recording to her past year confirmed that they have no tape, never had possession of a tape, never claimed to have possession of a tape and never played such a tape for Ms. Manigault-Newman.
