Trump calls Omarosa 'a lowlife' after memoir claims racial slurs

The book is due to be released next week, but CNN obtained a copy on Friday.

In the book, Manigault Newman says that Trump is a "racist" and claims that a tape exists of him using racial slurs from the set of "The Apprentice".

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. The Associated Press purchased an early copy of the memoir, which the White House has already slammed as "riddled with lies and false accusations".

After these shots were fired, Trump said he felt betrayed by the former Apprentice contestant and that's when he labeled her as a lowlife.

Director of Communications for the White House Public Liaison Office Omarosa Manigault listens during the daily press briefing at the White House, Oct. 27, 2017.

The book alleges that Manigault Newman was offered $15,000 a month from the president's campaign coffers to stay silent after she was sacked from the White House last December.

Throughout the book, Manigault Newman paints a deeply critical portrait of the president, describing him as a man who "loved conflict, chaos and confusion; he loved seeing people argue or fight".

She also claims Trump's campaign offered her a contract for $15,000k a month to keep quiet about her time in the administration, The Hill reported. Trump replied, according to her account.

Trump co-authored the bestselling book in 1987 with Tony Schwartz.

"Hearing it changed everything for me", she told NPR reporter Rachel Martin. According to a published report by the media organization, when asked to clear up the discrepancy, the former White House aide said Martin must not have read the book.

But CNN reports that The White House has called Omarosa a "disgruntled former employee" who is trying to make a buck off of fake stories.
