Trump Calls Omarosa a ‘Lowlife’ Following N-Word Claims

President Donald Trump has responded to former Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison, Omarosa Manigault Newman’s many accusations made against him in new book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House. The recent Big Brother participant makes claims that the 45th president’s mental health is in decline, that he uses the n-word on a “frequent” basis and that he is undoubtedly “a racist, a bigot and a misogynist.”

During a photo opportunity with a group Bikers for Trump in New Jersey this Saturday, the commander-in-chief was asked if he felt betrayed by his former mentee. He responded, “Lowlife. She’s a lowlife,” according to footage from The Guardian.

While making her latest appearance on Meet the Press, Newman released a recording of White House chief of staff John Kelly firing her in the Situation Room. She also claims she was offered $15,000 a month in an effort to buy her silence after leaving the oval office.

Listen to the clip of Kelly firing Omarosa below.
