Hatch 'not comfortable' with Trump calling Omarosa a 'dog'

Hatch 'not comfortable' with Trump calling Omarosa a 'dog'

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did something she's done plenty of times before.

Trump recently tweeted that it took the "dumbest man on television" - also an African-American - to make James "look smart", and he regularly refers to Waters as "low I.Q".

Too little, too late, many said. I was talking to you before the show. "She's still roundly lambasted as a two-bit opportunist, a racial sellout and an ego driven hustler".

The alleged recording of Trump using racial slurs was purportedly recorded during the taping of his reality TV show, The Apprentice.

In her book, "Unhinged", Ms Manigault Newman claims the Trump campaign was aware of the existence of the tape from the "Apprentice" period. "I have never seen one, because I didn't work for the government in any capacity there but I don't know if they are enforceable".

U.S. president Donald Trump.

The tape is of a phone conversation in October of that year between Ms Manigault-Newman, Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson and Lynne Patton, who was an assistant to Trump's son Eric at the time.

"You're releasing all the singles, when we're waiting for the album", he said, asking whether Manigault-Newman's staggered approach to contradicting the White House's denials with recorded proof was a long-term strategy.

And after PEOPLE writer Natasha Stoynoff accused Trump in 2016 of forcing an unwanted kiss on her, he denied the allegations and hinted that he wouldn't have sexually assaulted Stoynoff because he didn't find her attractive.

And now Trump's campaign is taking legal action. "And not just the year that she worked here, but the time that she spent on the campaign trail and I think it's really sad what she's doing at this point".

"This White House has a credibility issue", she said.

Throughout the book, Manigault-Newman accuses Trump of racism and sexism, while arguing that his mental capabilities have begun to deteriorate. They also said the couple, who are senior advisors, claimed they didn't know she would be fired.

In addition to speaking publicly about her experiences in Trump's White House, Manigault Newman has been releasing audio recordings of conversations and meetings held in the building, including a snippet of one she says is of her telephone conversation with Trump the day after she was sacked in December by White House chief of staff John Kelly. John Kelly is the White House chief of staff.

"We should not mistake anything that has happened here as to be Omarosa in any way purporting be a benefit to the African-American community", said Aisha Moodie-Mills, a Democratic strategist.

Keith Schiller, the president's former bodyguard who served for eight months as director of Oval Office operations, has been paid the same $15,000 a month by the Republican National Committee as a security consultant for its national convention - in 2020 in Charlotte. Furthermore, President Obama entered office in the midst of the 2008 economic crisis when black unemployment was at 12.7%, while President Trump entered office in a period of sustained growth in the economy.

Minimal association with Trump, like taking a photograph with the president in the Oval Office, was enough for protesters to decry Historically Black Colleges and University presidents on their own campuses past year. Among the criticized is Darrell Scott, an African-American pastor from OH who declared "This is probably going be. the most pro-black president that we've had in our lifetime".
