Lynne Patton, a Trump aide now at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, told the HuffPost that Manigault Newman phoned her after she resigned in December and claimed that McClain had played her the tape. Washington Post Reporter Sean Sullivan joined CBSN to discuss the fallout.
Ms. Manigault Newman later expressed willingness to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Moscow - and indicated that she had already been contacted by his office.
'[The Apprentice producer] Mark Burnett called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a bad and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa, ' the president tweeted.
During the interview, Tur asked Manigault Newman if Trump was aware ahead of time that WikiLeaks was going to release a trove of hacked emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign in the summer of 2016.
"When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn't work out".
Manigault Newman, who has known Trump since she was a contestant in 2003 on his reality TV show, "The Apprentice", said the president's proclivity for racial division is evident "when you see at every single opportunity he insults African-Americans".
'I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have.
"She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok".
She added: "This is his pattern with African-Americans". "I think it's really sad what she's doing at this point".
