On Friday, the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, issued a statement on the book, saying it was "riddled with lies" and condemning Manigault Newman for not praising Trump. She has a new book, in which she has accusing him of displaying odd behaviors and using racially charged epithets.
"I didn't want to believe it", she writes.
The name-calling came in response to a question about a series of explosive claims in Manigault Newman's forthcoming book about her time in the Trump administration.
She said: 'I was told exactly what Donald Trump said - yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant - and when he's said them. While she doesn't provide direct evidence, she cites three unnamed sources who attest to the existence of the tape. Early excerpts have been denounced by White House officials, who are launching a concerted effort to discredit their former colleague.
TMZ caught the former White House staffer as she arrived at a Washington, D.C. airport ahead of a publicity blitz.
In the book, Manigault Newman painted the president as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure. She says she had seen him acting inappropriately at numerous events he attended without his wife at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, including birthday parties, fundraisers and golf tournaments. She also says she later concluded that he is a racist and a bigot.
The White House responded by slamming the book and its author and chastising the press for writing about it.
"Hearing it changed everything for me", she told NPR reporter Rachel Martin. According to a published report by the media organization, when asked to clear up the discrepancy, the former White House aide said Martin must not have read the book.
