President Trump denies new allegations by Omarosa Manigault Newman that he used the “N” word, saying emphatically that no tape of him doing so exists.
Posting on Twitter, Trump said that Mark Burnett, the producer of his hit TV show “The Apprentice,” “called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a terrible and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa.”
“I don’t have that word in my vocabulary, and never have. She made it up,” he wrote.
Trump also tweeted: “Look at her MANY recent quotes saying such wonderful and powerful things about me – a true Champion of Civil Rights – until she got fired. Omarosa had Zero credibility with the Media (they didn’t want interviews) when she worked in the White House. Now that she says bad about me, they will talk to her. Fake News!”
Meanwhile, Newman told White House aides that she had once been shown a tape of Trump using the “N word” by former “Apprentice” contestant Troy McClain, the HuffPost reported. While she has written in a new book released on Tuesday in which she said she had never heard any tape in which Trump uses the racial slur, she has since repeatedly said that she did in fact hear a tape.
