From the sound of things, President Trump regrets ever hiring Omarosa Manigault-Newman.
Trump unloaded on the former White House aide Saturday by calling her a “low life,” not once but twice.
The president’s blunt comments came during an event at his golf resort in New Jersey after a reporter asked if he felt betrayed by Omarosa’s scathing tell-all book.
“Lowlife,” Trump responded. “She’s a lowlife.”
Omarosa makes a series of stunning claims about POTUS in her memoir Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.
The former communications director for the White House Office of Public Liaison describes the president as a self-absorbed “racist” suffering from “mental decline.”
She had been friends with Trump since appearing on season one of The Apprentice in 2004, and writes that she refused to believe he was a racist until she witnessed it firsthand.
“I rejected what other people said about him because they didn’t know him like I did,” she writes in an excerpt published Saturday by The Associated Press. “I had to go through the pain of witnessing his racism with my own eyes, and hearing it with my own ears, many times, until I couldn’t deny it any longer.”
Omarosa was fired from her job at the White House in December amid reports of tension with Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Her book will be released Tuesday.
