"It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media would now give her a platform, after not taking her seriously when she had only positive things to say about the president during her time in the administration", Sanders said.

Perhaps those "lies and false accusations" aren't so false after all. "The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous", wrote Conway, a frequent Trump critic despite his marriage to one of Trump's most consistent supporters, "particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House - December 12, 2017".
Newman, who left the White House a year ago, says that Trump used the racial slur while taping "The Apprentice" and that he was caught on camera. She is now coming forward to corroborate some of these horrendous claims made by Arnold and others.
Newman met Trump in 2004, when she was a contestant on the first season of The Apprentice.
"Would you look at this George Conway article?" she quoted the president as saying.
"By that point", Manigault Newman writes, "three sources in three separate conversations had described the contents of this tape". "It's absurd all around".
The offer was refused because of a nondisclosure agreement that would silence Manigualt Newman from commenting about Trump and his family.
