While the book itself is controversial, it may be her interview on NBC's "Meet The Press" this morning, which takes the cake.

On the recording, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly can be heard talking to Omarosa in the Situation Room.

The Situation Room is a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, where the nation's most consequential foreign policy decisions are made, and staff are not permitted to bring in mobile phones or other recording devices. "Not only is it not typical, something like this is unprecedented". "That is downright criminal", she said.

Trump has always been known to tape conversations over the phone and in person in his office at Trump Tower. "And they start to threaten me, put fear in me, to put me under duress".

Michael Cohen, formerly a lawyer for President Trump, leaves his hotel, in NY, last month.

Newman didn't specify when exactly the tape was from, but that it was from Trump's time hosting the show and spinoffs through early 2015.

Trump called Manigault Newman "a lowlife" on Saturday, in his first public response to the her book. "People around him try to reinforce that manufactured reality".

Markets and investors await Erdogan's response to lira crisis
The currency had earlier in the session lost almost 2 percent to R13.95, it weakest since June 28, according to Reuters data. The lira fell 7% against the dollar to 5.9655 on Friday morning after hitting an all-time low earlier in the session.

Manigault Newman appeared on the program in advance of the Tuesday publication of her new memoir "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House". She said he then played it off as a joke, but she knew he was serious'.

In it, Manigault Newman describes a mentally waning, racist and lewd, charismatic but emotionally abusive, man overseeing a conniving cast of aides and family members whose varied goals rarely include the betterment of the nation. "It's a threat. He went on to say that, 'Things could get ugly you.' ..."

After turning down the job, she said she received a "flurry" of letters from attorneys representing the president telling her to "stay silent about Trump, or else". Her comments come a day after Trump called "The Apprentice" alum a "low life." . "I have never once heard him say that about anyone, and I never heard Omarosa complained that she had heard the president say it about anyone either when she was there", Conway added. "Obviously, I failed miserably".

Conway went on to hit Manigault Newman for the recordings she allegedly made during her time in the White House. "After a while, I do think it become white noise and opinions about what you think of the president's character are pretty much cemented on one side or the other". She was a contestant on the first season of NBC's "The Apprentice", and later worked on Trump's presidential campaign. Permits for the United the Right 2 event were issued only once a security plan was finalised. The reason given was to protect White House "security systems". "I have never, a single time, heard him use a racial slur about anyone".

"Being used by Donald Trump for so long I was like the frog in hot water".

In a statement to ABC News, Pierson said, "Omarosa is being intentionally dishonest in order to sell her new book".
