Trump aides offer conflicting statements on Trump "N-word" accusation

"Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!" he wrote.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper picked apart President Donald Trump's deteriorating relationship with former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman on Monday's broadcast of "The Lead". "She never made it, never will", Mr. Trump said in a stream of angry tweets. "Goddamn it. I don't love you leaving at all".

Berman noted that Trump calling his enemies "dogs" is not exclusive to African-Americans, but Wilson countered "you should not call anyone dogs".

".@MarkBurnettTV called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a awful and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa", Trump tweeted Monday night, referring to the TV producer who created the reality TV show.

Trump officials and a number of outside critics denounced the recordings as a serious breach of ethics and security - and White House aides anxious about what else Manigault Newman may have captured in the West Wing.

Manigault-Newman did not identify the source who allegedly played the tape for her, but at least three longtime Trump aides told The Huffington Post that she told them it was Troy McClain, a former "Apprentice" contestant.

Melania infamously sparked outrage after wearing a jacket with the words "I really don't care, do u?" on a flight to meet detained immigrant children. "He's being puppeted", she said. "I wonder if she is recording some of the things that we've talked about as well", he told Fox News' "Fox & Friends".

While many may laugh it off as just the "latest chapter of what reads more like a reality television show than a normal presidency", it should be taken seriously Associate Professor in American Politics at University of Sydney's United States Studies Centre, Brendon O'Connor said.

During an appearance Monday night on Fox News, Pierson denied having had a conversation about alleged Trump tape.

Manigault Newman has said she heard the tape of Trump using the term, which dates from Trump's years hosting the NBC reality show "The Apprentice".

Like Ms. Manigault-Newman, I have also known and worked for both the President and his family for over a decade and am confident that they would collectively confirm that I know them far better than she.

In a recording of their conversation, Trump appeared unaware Manigault Newman had been fired. "I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me until she got fired!"

In her new book, Unhinged, she writes: "Taken as a whole, all of her style rebellions have served the same objective". The book paints a damning picture of Trump, including her claim that he used racial slurs on the set of his reality show "The Apprentice".

Trump said in an August 13 tweet that Manigault Newman indeed signed such an agreement. "The fact that she tape recorded various conversations, that's going to add more drama to the story if things come out about Trump making inappropriate statements", said Prof O'Connor.

But Trump has been defending himself on Twitter from her other criticisms.

Publicly, White House officials have looked to attack Manigault Newman's character as they seek to knock down her most salacious accusations.

"Her flattery was apparently so important to the president, he wanted her to stay despite everything else", Tapper explained.
