Multiple anti-Trump figures have surprisingly come out and slammed former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman over many of her recent claims in her new tell-all book. This came after she had revealed that she secretly recorded conversations in highly-sensitive areas in the White House, raising serious national security concerns.
Numerous claims made by Newman, who was fired from the White House in February, have already been challenged, including the claim that Trump used the “n-word” and used racial slurs to describe Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway.
Newman has already made contradictory statements about Trump’s alleged use of the “n-word,” initially claiming in the book that someone had told her about a tape that existed where Trump was heard using the term, but then claiming on NPR that she actually heard the tape.
Michael Steele, former chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), is one of the many anti-Trump figures to come out and attack Newman over her claims.
“I am not buying this,” Steele told MSNBC’s Katy Tur, after getting into a Twitter spat with Newman. “It’s about book sales.”
Frank Luntz, who does focus groups that are often televised, is another Trump critic who slammed Newman over the claims that involved him.
Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who has recently appeared to have turned against the president, also disputed a claim in Newman’s book — that he saw Trump eat a note that he wrote to him.
Some of Trump’s most intense critics in the media also shot down Newman’s credibility, including CNN’s April Ryan, Ana Navarro, and Brian Stelter.
