White House faces criticism over incorrect African American employment numbers

InUnhinged, the debut tell-all book by the reality star turned political aide, Newman wrote, "I believe Melania uses style to punish her husband".

Whose presence in the White House was worse: Jared Kushner or Omarosa Manigault Newman?

But Trump, who hired Newman to star on his show "The Apprentice" and then gave her a almost $180,000 job at the White House as his liaison to the African-American community, remained true to his rep as a "counter-puncher". She also recorded Trump calling her and playing dumb about the firing and unveiled those tapes to TV news outlets where she was booked to plug her book.

"I hope most employers would have considered it and thought about it, but unfortunately sometimes you need something as high profile as [the Omarosa story] to think 'wait, this might have implications for us in the workplace, ' " said Jason Gavejian, a principal in the privacy and data security group at the law firm Jackson Lewis.

'I want to see this nation united as opposed to divided, ' she said.

Melania Trump: Is Melania Trump planning to DIVORCE Donald Trump? SHOCK BOMBSHELL
In a flurry of early-morning tweets, a clearly agitated Trump unleashed his fury on his one-time " Apprentice " favourite. What's in the Omarosa tapes? Asked about the pact, Manigault Newman told MSNBC she did not believe she had violated it.

The shock claim is just one of many made in the publication, which other members of Donald's staff have condemned.

Mr Trump has come under fire previously for using derogatory terms to refer to women and African Americans. Reaching deep into his bottomless bag of insults, Trump has called her "that dog" and "a crazed, crying lowlife".

Manigault-Newman has been on a media blitz promoting her juicy tell-all memoir Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House which has caused quite a stir.

It's safe to say that Manigault Newman's employment status was not, in fact, a matter of national security.

Manigault Newman says that Trump doesn't seem to realize that his relationship with Ivanka is peculiar. By attacking the FBI, constantly dismissing the Russian Federation investigation as a witch hunt, and demanding that the attorney general shut it down, Trump is - wittingly or unwittingly - leading America to embrace the concept that justice should be arbitrary.

He added that most capital for the deal would come from equity and it would not be "wise" to burden the company with added debt. Musk's August 7 tweets helped push Tesla's stock price more than 13 percent above the prior day's close.

Trump, who has denied the existence of any such tape, assailed Manigault Newman in language that stood out even by his trash-talking standards, praising his chief of staff, John Kelly, "for quickly firing that dog!"

"We should not mistake anything that has happened here as to be Omarosa in any way purporting be a benefit to the African-American community", said Aisha Moodie-Mills, a Democratic strategist.

In addition to speaking publicly about her experiences in Trump's White House, Manigault Newman has been releasing audio recordings of conversations and meetings held in the building, including a snippet of one she says is of her telephone conversation with Trump the day after she was sacked in December by White House chief of staff John Kelly. She also released audio of Trump campaign aides discussing fallout plans if an alleged video of Trump using a racial slur ever surfaces.

"Can you stand at the podium and guarantee the American people will never hear Donald Trump utter the "n-word" on a recording in any context?" asked NBC reporter Kristen Welker at today's press briefing.

According to Manigault Newman, that's Trump's phrasing for "gay".
