Omarosa Shares Tape of Trump Staffers Discussing N-Word Tape: ‘He Said It’

Omarosa Manigault Newman released a new recording to CBS News featuring a collection of Trump campaign staffers discussing the potential release of a tape of Donald Trump using the N-word.

Manigault Newman claimed this week that there is a recording of Trump using the N-word during his time hosting The Apprentice on NBC News.

She claimed that in a phone conversation from October 2016, Trump campaign staffers Katrina Pierson, Jason Miller and Lynn Patton discussed how to spin the potential release of the tape.

Katrina Pierson appeared on Fox News Monday night, and vehemently denied such a phone call ever happened.

But in the tape Manigault Newman released to CBS News, Katrina Pierson can be heard saying of Trump:

“He said it. No he said it. He’s embarrassed.”

While none of the staffers appeared to have heard the tape of Trump at the time of their call, Manigault Newman’s recording contradicts Pierson’s claims on Fox News Monday night.

“No one doubted that he said it,” Manigault Newman said on CBS This Morning. “They had worked to try to suppress this tape for so long.”

Manigault Newman also revealed that Pierson spoke to Kellyanne Conway about the potential tape.
