The president's Twitter attacks on the former aide have only fueled charges of racism from his critics, who claim he is trying to dehumanize Newman, a Trump associate since 2004, when they first met on the set of The Apprentice reality TV series. Manigault Newman's attorney said she hadn't see any legal action filed as of earlier today and had no comment, according to NBC News.
As the highest-profile African-American on the White House staff, she pushed back on accusations that Trump was racist.
"When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn't work out", Trump said Tuesday in a tweet. "Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog". "I knew that I had to cover my back and document what I saw as an opportunity to blow the whistle on a lot of the corruption going on in the White House".
"You might like her, you might not, but to call her a DOG?" added King.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, asked if she was surprised by Manigault Newman's animus toward the president, told reporters she was disappointed by what she called the former aide's self-serving and false claims. In a press release he said: "Omarosa has proven herself time and time again not to be trustworthy from the day she was sacked from the Clinton administration, to when she was sacked from (NBC's "The Apprentice") and her firing from the Trump administration".
"Nothing has more meaning to Donald than himself", she says, alleging that he and his wife Melania sleep in separate rooms and that Trump has brought a tanning bed with him to the White House.More news: Samsung launches pre-orders for Galaxy Note 9 in India
When asked about the White House disputing the details of her book, Manigault-Newman told Noah she 100 percent expected denial from the administration.
Such figures are even more impressive given Trump's disappointing performance with black voters during the 2016 presidential election, where he garnered just eight percent support among black men and four percent support among black women. "Every single time he said something, at first I thought, 'Is he doing this intentionally?'" she said.
Manigault Newman has suggested that Trump has been recorded using racial slurs - something Trump denies.
Discussing the differences between their views, she said: "One, I want to see this nation united as opposed to divided".
NPR reported on Tuesday that Trump filed a complaint accusing Omarosa of violating the agreement, meaning this could now play out over a lengthy arbitration process, resurfacing again and again.
Largely self-serving, it describes the daily firefighting of life on the Trump campaign and then in the White House.
