“Omarosa, what’s going on? I just saw in the news you’re thinking about leaving. What happened?” Trump is heard asking.
Manigault Newman, who was fired from her White House job last December replied, saying, “General Kelly — General Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave.”
“No. Nobody even told me about it,” the President replied. “You know, they run a big operation but I didn’t know it. I didn’t know that. Damn it, I don’t love you leaving at all.”
Trump responded Monday morning on Twitter, saying Omarosa “never made it, never will” and said she was “vicious, but not smart.”
The audio was released as Manigault Newman gears up for the release of her new book, “Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House,” which contains several unflattering claims against the President and his staff. Omarosa claims to have multiple recordings of her time in the White House, but many of the claims she has made are unverifiable.
Early excerpts of her book have been denounced by White House officials, and the President this weekend called Manigault Newman a “low life.”
