Omarosa's book marks stunning turn-around for a former top aide

Omarosa in new book: I saw Trump’s racism ‘with my own eyes’

When asked on "Meet the Press" how often she made recordings during her time working for President Donald Trump, Omarosa said: "This is a White House where everybody lies. you have to have your own back".

Last week White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders charged the book is "riddled with lies".

Manigault Newman appeared on the show to promote her new book, "Unhinged", which will be released Tuesday.

Manigault Newman said that Trump "never said the n-word in my presence", but in her book she cites unnamed sources who claim to know of the existence of a recording where the president uses that word on the set of "The Apprentice".

While the book itself is controversial, it may be her interview on NBC's "Meet The Press" this morning, which takes the cake.

Manigault Newman said she taped the meeting, which was held in the Situation Room, because she was trying to "protect" herself.

"The president is frustrated that the attorney general recused himself in early March of 2017 from anything having to do with the campaign", she said. "I was complicit, and for that I regret".

Reports have been circulating for years that outtakes from the reality television show exist in which Trump can be heard saying the N-word.

She recounts how Trump battled to have a tanning bed installed when he moved into the White House.

Manigault Newman served as special assistant to the president, and was tasked with outreach to the African American community. On the Saturday anniversary of the riot, Trump tweeted, "I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence", which some have interpreted as more waffling, as reported by USA Today. "And so the only thing that's changed is that she's now selling books". After Kelly let her go, she reportedly tried, unsuccessfully, to reach Trump directly to issue a personal appeal, setting off a secret-service alarm in the process.

Amid President Donald Trump's attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, calling him "scared stiff and Missing in Action", Kellyanne Conway refused to say whether the country's top law enforcement official would hang onto his job.

Manigault Newman said she viewed the comment as a "threat" and defended her decision to covertly record it and other White House conversations, describing it as a form of protection.
