This comes just days after Trump's unhinged Twitter tirade against the savvy former White House insider, labeling Manigault-Newman as "wacky", "deranged" and a "low-life" in a series of blistering tweets.
Brian Kilmeade likened it to when Trump last fell for that strategy, back when former flatterer Michael Wolff was plugging his salacious White House intrigue book Fire And Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
The revelation this week that former White House assistant Omarosa Manigault Newman was offered a high-paying job on Trump's re-election campaign in return for signing a nondisclosure agreement was the clearest demonstration yet of how a slot in the Trump orbit is being used to take care of loyalists - and protect against potential liabilities. "He is embarrassed", Pierson, now a senior adviser on the Trump re-election campaign, says during a phone conversation with Manigault-Newman and another Trump aide, HUD official Lynne Patton. For example, in her book she says she spoke to a source who had heard a tape of Trump using racial slurs.
"As long as I'd known Trump, I'd observed the way he hugs, touches, and kisses Ivanka; the way she calls him Daddy.""And I'm not going to be bullied by Donald Trump", she said.
"When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems", Trump tweeted about Manigault Newman on Monday.
"The president of the United States is calling a woman of color a dog?".
"She said: "(Melania) gladly, spitefully, wrecked her husband's directives to make him look foolish".
Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election and Trump has repeatedly called the Mueller probe a witch hunt.
Trump, who has denied the existence of any such tape, assailed Manigault Newman in language that stood out even by his trash-talking standards, praising his chief of staff, John Kelly, "for quickly firing that dog!" In an escalating trade war with China or military intervention overseas, Trump might not be able to count on support from American allies. "That has been my experience", she said. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.
She has been trashing Trump in the media all week, and clearly holds a grudge over her abrupt sacking from her position as a senior adviser to the President a year ago.
Jimmy Kimmel discussed the time Omarosa Manigault-Newman walked out of a scheduled appearance on his show.
CBS News aired a recording of what appears to be her and other campaign aides hatching a plan to tamp down the damage if such a tape of Trump existed.
In a press conference Tuesday, Sanders said about Trump: "In the year and a half that he's been here, he's created 700,000 new jobs for African-Americans".
