White House press secretary apologizes for false claims on African-American jobs

In the memoir, she alleges Trump is a racist, a misogynist and a narcissist, and claims he repeatedly used the "N-word" on the set of "The Apprentice". That's the agreement his campaign said Tuesday, in its filing with the American Arbitration Association, that she violated.

"When President Obama left after eight years in office - eight years in office - he had only created 195,000 jobs for African-Americans", Sanders told reporters.

Manigault Newman recalls a time when Trump paused a meeting during the campaign so everyone could marvel over Ivanka's form-fitted skirt. When Omarosa Manigault Newman revealed that she had secretly recorded conversations in the Situation Room earlier this week, Souza posted a photo of Obama and his security team in one of the room's conference areas with the caption: "Telephones and other communication devices were not allowed in any of the three rooms". She noted that hiring and personnel were the responsibility of others in the White House, but said she has "tons and tons of emails" in which she pushed job candidates for consideration. "I don't know how you hold a public employee accountable". "This could be hurtful to your legacy and the integrity of your work", Manigault Newman reportedly wrote to Ryan at the time.

During the campaign and her White House tenure, Manigault Newman, who was the highest-ranking black official in the West Wing, stood by Trump even at moments of racial strife, including the clashes between white supremacists and counterprotesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Trump's targeting of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem in social protest.

In recent days, Manigault Newman has released audio of her firing by Kelly and of a call from Trump in which he says he did not know about her dismissal.

History is replete with authoritarian leaders who have sought to dehumanise individuals or groups of people by calling them animals. He added: "I think the president has believed that for a while based on studies and information he has", and then, "as I've noted several times now, he's believed this for a long time".

Manigault Newman, who has known Trump since she was a contestant in 2003 on his reality TV show, "The Apprentice", said his proclivity for racial division is evident "when you see at every single opportunity he insults African-Americans".

"There's one way to shut Donald Trump down, and that is just don't give him the oxygen". She was sacked last December. "In fact, everything she said was quite the opposite".

"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. Most noticeable, still, was where she wore a jacket that read, 'I really don't care, do u?' while headed to a USA border in Texas.
