Donald Trump used the n-word during production of The Apprentice season one, according to excerpts from Omarosa's new book that will be released Tuesday.

The CNN analyst says that her friendship with Omarosa - who has her own controversial book out about her time in the White House - was made hard because of Omarosa's then-close relationship with President Trump, who had feuded with Ryan.

Sanders also says, "It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks". Right on time, as the news broke, Manigault Newman touted her upcoming book tour on Instagram, ready to capture some sales.

"On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said - yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant - and when he'd said them", Manigault Newman's book reads, according to NPR.

After Manigault Newman confided her desire to hear the N-word tape to then-White House communications director Hope Hicks, the Unhinged author writes that Hicks then told chief of staff John Kelly that Manigualt Newman was "close to getting her hands on the tape", leading to her termination. Using the N-word wasn't just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'.

It is not the first time Mr Trump has been hit by damaging tapes.

She says that Trump can be heard saying the word in a recording of an outtake from his show "The Apprentice". That was in November; by December, Manigault Newman was out of the Trump fold.

Omarosa wrote in the book that she felt a "growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist". "F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! Fucking Goo-goo".

She also claims that she personally witnessed Trump use racial epithets about the White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband George Conway, who is half Filipino. Politico explains the significance of the date: It wasn't widely well-known at that point that Conway sometimes criticized the president on Twitter; stories on it didn't widely emerge until after Omarosa left.

"I saw him put a note in his mouth". "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes.

Manigault Newman also alleges that allies of the president tried to buy her silence.
