In the book, Newman describes hearing about the tape but not hearing it herself.

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

She also released what is said to be a secretly recorded tape of White House chief of staff John Kelly firing her.

"If I did not have this recording, people would still believe the false story that I was running around the White House". I just saw in the news that you're thinking about leaving. "So I protected myself and now I am glad I did".

NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday aired Omarosa Manigault Newman's recording of her firing by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly in December, and she said that she considers what Kelly said a "threat".

During her exclusive interview on the "Today Show", Ms. Manigault Newman questioned who holds power in the White House.

"I don't want to negotiate", Manigault Newman replied. He adds: "I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!"

"Apparently telling the truth wasn't paying her bills, so she made a decision to switch her story to try and make a quick buck and that I just can't abide by", Mr. Gidley said.

"I don't love you leaving at all", he added.

"It had finally sunk in that the person I'd thought I'd known so well for so long was actually a racist", she wrote, according to The Guardian. "You have to have your own back or else you'll look back and you'll have 17 knives in your back".

Manigault Newman, whose book "Unhinged" is out this week, suggested there was more to come, saying: "There's a lot of very corrupt things happening in the White House and I am going to blow the whistle on a lot of them". It is the same amount that a few others who have departed the White House under inauspicious circumstances are receiving.

"There's multiple tapes, let's be clear about that", she said.

"It's a system based on honour and integrity, and there's a sign outside that says, 'Place your phones here, '" he said. "And he's accusing me of integrity violations?" The Situation Room is the inner sanctum of the White House.

In her interview with Todd, Manigault Newman said she considered the offer an attempt to buy her silence. "Today" previewed the interview in the 7 a.m. half-hour, but held Manigault Newman to 7:30.

The White House claims Omarosa's allegation that President Trump is racist is "false". "You know they run a bit operation, but I didn't know it". Trump tweeted a scathing criticism of his former top-level aide just as her book-promoting media tour was gaining steam, all but guaranteeing the kind of made-for-cable feud that made them both reality TV stars and ultimately brought them to the White House.

She claims she also personally witnessed Trump using racial epithets when referencing his aide Kellyanne Conway's husband George, who is half-Filipino.
