Trump has choice words for ex-aide Omarosa

Her book, and the account it provides of a President who stokes racial tensions for political purposes, comes about one-year after the rally.

"Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Friday.

The author says she now regards Kelly's phrasing as a "very obvious" threat that justifies her secretly recording the meeting. She also described him as a man who "loved conflict, chaos and confusion; he loved seeing people argue or fight". The famous room, which is located behind a locked door in the basement of the West Wing of the White House, is known to be the most secure and technologically advanced places in the US government so for Omarosa's firing to be done in the room indicates those involved wanted it to be under wraps.

And I think that Omarosa unfortunately has undercut her own credibility", White House counselor Kellyanne ConwayKellyanne Elizabeth ConwaySunday shows preview: "Virginia lawmakers talk Charlottesville, anniversary protests Pollster denies Omarosa's claim he heard Trump using N-word Kellyanne Conway's husband: "Omarosa claim that Trump used racial slur against me "absurd" MORE said on ABC's "This Week". "Why shouldn't we in the West Wing?" Meantime, Trump is quoted dismissing his eldest son Donald Trump a "f**k up". She tempers the claim by stating that she hadn't heard the tapes themselves but that she learned about the recordings from more than one of her contacts. "I was complicit in it, for that I regret".

The president appeared to back this sentiment on Saturday when he spoke before reporters and called Omarosa a "lowlife" when asked about her book, as Business Insider reported.

The book also claims that Mr Trump behaves "like a dog off the leash" at events he attends without his wife, Melania. The White House initially said Newman had resigned but after the "Big Brother" appearance said she had been fired.

"It's pretty clear from that recording that John Kelly came in and said 'This is the end, we want you to leave, '" she said.

Donald Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen is throwing cold water on a claim from a onetime White House aide that she saw the president eat a piece of paper in the Oval Office.

In the recording, Kelly also said that everybody on the staff works for Kelly and not the president, and Manigault responded to that on Meet the Press by saying, "It tells you Donald Trump has no idea what's happening in the White House".

The Situation Room is a secure conference room located in the basement of the White House, where people are required to leave their electronic devices outside before entering.

Ms Manigault Newman defended her decision to covertly record it and other White House conversations, describing it as a form of protection.
