Omarosa on The View: Trump World Will Probably Applaud When They Hear N-Word Tape

During an appearance on The View today, former White House senior aide Omarosa Manigault Newman — who recently turned her administration experience into a New York Times bestseller — said supporters of President Donald Trump will “applaud” if they hear the alleged tape of him saying the n-word.

“I’ve heard the tape, they’ve been talking about releasing it — you know, I’m suspecting they’re going to release it around the midterms,” Omarosa said on the ABC talk show this afternoon. “The Trump world cult will probably applaud when they hear him say it, because they’re desensitized to his racist ways.”

Omarosa also released a new tape recording on The View, which was from an October 2017 White House meeting between communications and press staffers.

“When Donald Trump got bored, which was very often because his attention span was very short, he would sometimes try to figure out what meetings were taking place in the White House and he would crash those meetings,” Manigault Newman said. “This was a meeting with the entire communications staff and the press shop. We were meeting to talk about tax reform or his trip to North Korea.”

She continued: “He came into the meeting, he sat down, and he starts rambling from topic to topic, none of it makes sense. And this is in October of last year, so this is … twelve months after the election, and he’s still talking about Hillary Clinton.”

During the recording, Trump says the “real Russia story is Hillary and collusion,” which an unfounded allegation he has made for quite some time. The president then claimed Hillary Clinton spent $9 million on a “phony report” about him, to which press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders corrected him, saying it was “closer to six.”

Trump then accused her of being wrong, saying that the Clinton campaign used a law firm to make the payments, so “that way, they can’t trace it.”

“The reason a law firm is because this way you don’t have to give any papers,” he added. “But they found out, it’s definitely illegal and it’s illegal from a campaign standpoint, from a campaign financing standpoint.”

He concluded the meeting by saying that the Russia conspiracy is really about the Clinton campaign. Sanders responded by agreeing with the president.
