Trump lashes out at Omarosa, calls her "that dog"

Pierson also defended Trump's decision to hire Manigault Newman at the White House in the first place.

In tweets on Monday night (Tuesday NZT), Trump denied ever using "such a bad and disgusting word", and his aides have denied having strategised about how to contain the damage if such a tape surfaced.

And now the fight has now sunk to a new low with the commander-in-chief tweeting derogatory names about his former aide that have many saying that the n-word tape must exist to illicit such a strong reaction from the president.

Trump's latest attempt to discredit her comes after Omarosa claimed to have heard him use the n-word on a recorded tape dating back to his time on "The Apprentice".

"But he continued it in a very, very derogatory way", she said. "The president of the United States is calling a woman of color a dog?". "She gladly, spitefully, wrecked her husband's directives to make him look foolish". A campaign official said the action was filed with the American Arbitration Association.

Donald Trump has called a former senior adviser a "dog" who is a "crazed, crying lowlife" after she released a tape in which the president expressed surprise at learning of her dismissal.

"He had to protect himself from allegations that would come up, both personal and business", said Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign aide.

First lady Melania Trump, meanwhile, is disappointed that Manigault Newman "is lashing out and retaliating in such a self-serving way, especially after all the opportunities given to her by the President", said White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham.

Ms. Manigault Newman - who first gained fame as a contestant on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice", and then secured a $180,000-a-year staff job at the White House - released a recording of a private conversation she had with the president after she was sacked.

Trump campaign advisers Katrina Pierson and Lynne Patton - who are purportedly on the new tape discussing the claim - have said in statements to U.S. media that the conversation never took place.

Manigault Newman claims to have asked President Trump shortly after the shoving incident.

On Tuesday, she released a third recording to CBS "This Morning" that suggested top campaign staffers knew Trump had used the "N-word" and discussed a potential response if it leaked. The book called, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House", will be released Tuesday.

No known prior administration has relied upon the use of NDAs to try to silence public employees, because any such document was correctly perceived as legally unenforceable and problematic on so many levels. While on the show, she addressed several controversies now centered around her, including possessing a tape in which Trump allegedly says "n****r" and another in which White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is heard talking to her about her role in the Trump administration, ultimately asking her to leave. "Yes, she is a liar and a backstabber with no credibility - exactly like everyone else in the Trump administration".

Manigault Newman eyes flashed at this point and she became condescending. CBS This Morning aired the clip, which Omarosa says included Katrina Pierson, Lynn Patton, and Jason Miller. She throws out, for instance, that she "heard" Trump was having a sexual relationship with evangelical leader Paula White.
