"I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have".
President Donald Trump and another official slapped away Omarosa Manigault-Newman's claims that she heard him say the N-word as a private citizen during the filming of the NBC reality show, "The Apprentice".
US President Donald Trump has escalated his messy clash with former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, referring to his longtime colleague, who had been the top African-American in his White House, as "that dog!".
She argued Trump has routinely sparred with his adversaries, former adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman being no exception. "They want me out there talking more".
When she was sacked from the White House in December 2017, Mr Trump tweeted: "Thank you Omarosa for your service!" "Not only is this flat-out false (I've never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn't even make an effort to call or email me to verify".
His latest attack on Manigault Newman prompted immediate criticism from lawmakers and others.
Trump pointed out on Twitter yesterday that Manigault Newman had signed an earlier agreement.
Since Sunday when Omarosa first played a tape of a portion of her "exit interview" with John Kelly, there have been reports that the Trump administration might take legal action against her.
Ms Manigault-Newman's claims paint a picture that the First Lady could be preparing to divorce her husband but Mr Trump has been eager to discredit her.
Trump himself came the closest to an explanation on Monday morning, writing on Twitter that he'd heard his aide was performing poorly in her job and antagonizing others, but that he remained enamored by her then-unyielding support.
"I can tell you that it's common in a lot of places for employees to sign NDAs including in government, particularly anyone with a security clearance", Sanders said. The president tweeted praise for Chief of Staff John F. Kelly "for quickly firing that dog".
U.S. Senator Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic, called the president's language "unbecoming" and, in a tweet quoting the president's post, wrote that fellow Republicans "should not be okay with it". She said on NBC that in her absence "they're making decisions about us without us".
She said: "Taken as a whole, all of her style rebellions have served the same objective".
According to Omarosa, the former model made that move to hurt and humiliate Donald who often takes wild decisions and makes weird comments.
Guests included Conway and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
What perhaps worries the Trump team most is they can't be sure what else she surreptitiously recorded.
A former contestant on his TV show "The Apprentice", Manigault Newman joined the campaign and became an assistant to the president, earning $179,000 a year as director of communications for the White House office of public liaison.
"At any time, if she so desired, she could humiliate him in public with small, ambiguous gestures, just as he'd openly humiliated her with his affairs and lascivious behavior for years".
And that, she said, is more evidence of how Trump treats black people. "I don't want to see a race war as Donald Trump does".
