The White House is hitting back at former aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman, claiming her forthcoming anti-Trump book is full of “lies” while dismissing her as “disgruntled.”
“Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Friday.
Manigault-Newman, who got famous as the villain of Trump’s “The Apprentice” reality show, is coming out with a book next week about her time as an adviser in the White House.
“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.
She also claims Trump used racial slurs to describe George Conway, the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway who is half Filipino.
The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous, particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House—December 12, 2017. It’s absurd all around.— George Conway (@gtconway3d) August 10, 2018
