Omarosa Reveals Recording of Trump on NBC's 'TODAY' Show

The president used the recording to attack his former employee straight after the broadcast on Monday and then again on Tuesday.

Omarosa Manigault Newman said she made the recording when Mr Trump called her the day after she was taken into the high-security Situation Room and fired by White House chief of staff John Kelly past year.

Neither contained outwardly embarrassing language. At the same time, she seems to believe the White House could plan on making life hard for her.

Now, aides are wondering who else might be using a recording device to capture audio from private conversations.

Trouble in paradise was triggered by unflattering secret recordings Manigault Newman made were released to the media. "You know they run a big operation but I didn't know it".

"Omarosa", Noah replied. "How can you say that about the president three years after we all said that about the president?!" He's not fooling anyone, is he?" he asked, before adding, "She's saying he's mentally declined. In many ways, two former senior administration officials pointed out, what Omarosa is doing now is pure Trump.

"LeBron James said it correctly when he said racism has always existed, but President Trump has emboldened the racists to come forward without any fear of punitive actions, and we have got to stop this".

The former "Apprentice" victor and White House aide's antics, which have already drawn condemnation from the White House and Donald Trump, have included revealing secret recordings of her firing her and Trump saying he had no idea about it, along with wild excerpts from her new memoir, "Unhinged". But it's even more stunning that the conversation happened in the Situation Room - the most secure area in the West Wing, reserved for the most sensitive conversations, many of them dealing with highly classified intelligence.

"The law governing the taping of these conversations varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction".

In her book, Unhinged, Manigault Newman claims the Trump campaign was aware of the existence of the tape from the Apprentice period.

"Listen, people would still think that I was trying to set off alarms". The constitutionality of such an agreement is also suspect, but no known legal challenge has ever been made.

Jacksonville attorney John Phillips posted on social media Saturday that he was representing former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman.

He began: "President Trump's staffing decisions are really coming back to haunt him this week as his lawyers fumble their response to the Russian Federation probe and the White House feuds with Omarosa".

It was not clear exactly what he was referring to. But people familiar with the documents signed by senior officials early in the administration previously told CNN the documents contain little legal underpinning and were devised as a way to placate a President intent on keeping his aides quiet. The president took to Twitter (after another recording surfaced of him appearing unaware Manigault Newman had been fired by Kelly) to claim that "Wacky Omarosa" is "vicious, but not smart". As a NY business executive, he relied for decades upon NDAs to ensure that those closest to him never uttered a word about what they saw or were told about him.

"She made it up", he wrote, also calling her a "lowlife", "a loser" and "Wacky and Deranged". He said Manigault Newman had called him "a true Champion of Civil Rights" until she was sacked.

"He was certainly going after him because of his race", she told MSNBC's Chris Matthews ahead of the release of her tell-all book about the current White House administration. "Because I could be next", she said. Mr. Trump came to office vowing to hire "only the best people" - but has struggled to put a lid on leaks, incompetence, backbiting and scandal inside his White House. The President has brushed aside presidential norms and his advisers have touted his unconventional style as a breath of fresh air. "So he absolutely has an issue with the truth, and sometimes he battles with reality".

But while Trump's move from Democratic donor and NY libertine to über-conservative GOP cult leader took years to execute, Manigault Newman's evolution feels like it's happening in real time.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to the claims on August 10.

Ms Manigault-Newman rose to fame as a contestant on reality TV show "The Apprentice" in 2004.
