Omarosa releases another Trump recording, Trump lashes out on Twitter

She appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press," which played portions of the conversation she said she had with Kelly and was taped inside the Situation Room.

"You know that we have an interview right after this", Omarosa interrupted Guthrie. "You can lose your security clearance for bringing your device into SCIF - to bring it in is a violation but to willfully record it - you're entering a whole other realm".

He added Manigault may have breached security clearance protocol and broken the law by recording in the Situation Room.

He can be heard in another clip aired by the network Sunday morning suggesting a smooth exit would help her reputation, a remark that Manigault Newman told NBC she took as a threat.

He went on to say he heard "really bad things" about her time there: "Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. And I think that Omarosa, unfortunately, has undercut her own credibility".

And she compares the President's mind to a boring blade, suggesting he no longer pronounces long words correctly and has trouble recollecting his rationale for major decisions, including firing FBI Director James Comey.

Manigault Newman served as special assistant to the president, and was tasked with outreach to the African American community. The president told her that he didn't know what had happened, and he described the White House as a big operation. "People around him try to reinforce that manufactured reality".

Pochettino continued: "It was a unusual transfer market because until England was out [of the World Cup] no-one was moving". They need to give their best. "I am so happy in the way they come back to training on Monday".

In her book, Ms Manigault Newman paints a damning picture of Mr Trump, including claiming without evidence that tapes exist of him using the N-word as he filmed The Apprentice.

In a statement Friday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders described the book as "riddled with lies and false accusations".

"When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser and nothing but problems. Ever." She did not say which "inappropriate things" she had heard.

She repeated what she asserts in the book: that Trump is a "racist, misogynist and bigot", a realization that she said dawned on her only as her rocky White House tenure came to an end. But Sunday she tells Chuck Todd that, after the book closed, she was able to hear it personally.

When asked to respond to her book over the weekend, Trump called Manigault-Newman a "lowlife".

"The president also said he realize it's "'not presidential'" to slam her on Twitter, but said Twitter is a modern form of communication, and he knows the media will do everything possible to make her look legitimate. I wanted to see the best in him. "And obviously I, I felt miserably". It is the same amount that a few others who have departed the White House under inauspicious circumstances are receiving.

She says the president lies often. She acknowledged that all West Wing officials had signed nondisclosure agreements, a measure that Trump relied on for decades as a real estate developer.
