"Trumps calls Omarosa a 'lowlife' at 'Bikers for Trump" rally

President Donald Trump was accused by his former White House aide and "The Apprentice" contestant Omarosa Manigault of using a horribly racist word, and he directly addressed the claim on Monday.

The alleged tape figures a central role in Manigault's book, where she says that she sought to uncover the evidence of racism until she was sacked by White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Omarosa also had a bridal "going away" party before her wedding with none other than aides close to the president.

The president said that Mark Burnett, who produced "The Apprentice", called him and assured him there are "no tapes of the Apprentice where I used such a awful and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa".

"Nobody even told me about it", Mr. Trump is heard saying, after chief of staff John Kelly terminated her employment. "I said, 'I don't want to take her call.' She wanted me to be here, I said, 'I won't be able to, we'll have to change a lot of scheduling.' But that didn't suit her, she didn't stop, and here I am".

"I can tell you it's absolutely 100 percent not true", he said, adding that he had to sign the same document when he left the White House last fall for a position with the vice president.

Manigault Newman - who has been promoting her new memoir, "Unhinged", in advance of its release Tuesday - said during an interview on MSNBC's "Velshi & Ruhle" that White House officials "were talking about early on doing something to help combat the violence in Chicago that we have seen rise to levels that are just unacceptable". "You're the "You're fired" guy, and you're too scared to tell Omarosa she's fired?" "The people that work in the White House work on behalf of the American people and not on behalf of Donald Trump". "I never expected him to lie to the country". She was vicious, but not smart. "In fact, there are several former employees from the White House who actually signed this agreement, who are all being paid $15,000 for their silence".

Employee steals plane from Seattle airport, crashes it shortly
Sheriff's department officials said they were working to conduct a background investigation on the Pierce County resident. The US Coast Guard said the plane was stolen and was seen flying around Puget Sound at one point, NBC News reported .

"The very idea a staff member would sneak a recording device into the White House Situation Room, shows a blatant disregard for our national security-and then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee", Sanders said in a August 12 statement.

Trump had "always been kind to me, as I said repeatedly in dozens and dozens of interviews", she continued.

In an unusual admission, Trump acknowledged that the public sparring was perhaps beneath a person in his position, tweeting that he knew it was "not presidential" to take on "a lowlife like Omarosa". "He doesn't know how to control himself".

Trump tweeted Monday that Manigault Newman has a "fully signed Non-Disclosure Agreement!"

According to the New York Daily News, Mangigault-Newman, in one section of the book, writes that Trump called his son a "f*ck-up" for publicly posting the emails he exchanged with Rob Goldstone.

Trump came to office vowing to hire "only the best people" - but has struggled to put a lid on leaks, backbiting and scandal inside his White House.
