White House Says Omarosa’s Book Is ‘Riddled With Lies’

Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House by Omarosa Manigault-Newman goes on sale on August 14.

According to the Post, an excerpt from Unhinged also claims that Lara Trump, the President's daughter-in-law, and adviser offered Omarosa a job after she was sacked from The White House.

Manigault Newman, who got her big break as a contender on Trump's canceled TV show, The Apprentice, has, in the words of the NY magazine's Jonathan Chait "met a wall of skepticism bordering on reflexive disbelief".

She previously stated in an interview on Friday with NPR that she has heard Trump on an Apprentice tape using the racial slur.

Trump was responding to a question from New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman about Manigault Newman's tell-all memoir that was announced this week.

Elsewhere in her book, she claims the president suffers from "mental decline" and alleges she once saw Trump chew up a piece of paper after a meeting with his then-lawyer Michael Cohen.

Publisher Gallery Books said "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House" will recount Newman's role in Trump's political rise, from her campaign trail focus on reaching out to African-American voters to her role in White House communications.

This is just one of a list of claims made by Omarosa Manigault Newman in a book lifting the lid on her former boss that threatens to reduce what's left of Trump's reputation to tatters - and could even destroy his presidency.

"It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks", she said.

And Sanders is correct - both Manigault Newman and Trump once had a close relationship after she became a star contestant and popular villain on his hit reality TV show, "The Apprentice".

Manigault Newman worked in the White House for almost a year as an assistant to the president and the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.
