Fredericton shooting Brian Gallant says response to shooting changing ‘hour-by-hour

Asked about the allegations at a photo-op with the group Bikers for Trump on Saturday in Bedminster, New Jersey, the president said: "Lowlife".

The book is set for release Tuesday.

Manigault Newman also alleges that allies of the president tried to buy her silence.

President Donald Trump has responded to the claims that he used racial slurs on the set of "The Apprentice", which have stemmed from former senior adviser and "The Apprentice" contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman's book, "Unhinged".

Manigault Newman served as the director of communications for the White House's Office of Public Liaison and claims chief of staff John Kelly fired her because she was close to getting audio of Trump using the racial slur.

Manigault Newman was previously best known for her polarizing character on NBC's "The Apprentice". In the book, she paints Trump as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure. "Every critic, every detractor, will have to bow down to President Trump", Manigault Newman said in an interview with PBS in 2016.

"I rejected what other people said about him because they didn't know him like I did".

According to multiple reports, she cites three unnamed sources in "Unhinged" who claim to have heard Trump use the "N-word" repeatedly during the making of The Apprentice.

The former reality television star reportedly writes that Trump played the comments off as a joke, but she says she believes he was serious, according to the excerpt obtained by Slate.

Don't expect Donald Trump to invite Omarosa Manigault-Newman back to the White House for some tea and cookies any time soon.

"It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media would 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", she added.
