Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman has branded Donald Trump a “racist“ who repeatedly used the ‘N-word’, she has claimed in an explosive new memoir.

In an excerpt of her book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, the 44-year-old reality star lifts the lid on her relationship with the president and alleges that he often uttered the racial slur while taping his reality TV show The Apprentice.

Her scathing account of the experience as a contestant on the show, revealed in the memoir which The Guardian obtained an advanced copy of, appears to confirm rumours that have been circulating since the 2016 election, indicating there is secretly recorded audio of Trump using offensive language on The Apprentice.

She writes that she felt a “growing realisation that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist. My certainty about the N-word tape and his frequent uses of that word were the top of a high mountain of truly appalling things I’d experienced with him, during the last two years in particular”.

Newman goes on to claim Trump took his alleged bigotry into the White House, where she witnessed him use racial epithets about the White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway, who is half Filipino.

“It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist,” she writes in the memoir. “Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole.”
