Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former "Apprentice" contestant who became a White House aide, has provided an audio recording that she says is from 2017 and on which President Donald Trump expresses surprise that she'd been fired from his administration.
The president said that Mark Burnett, who produced "The Apprentice", called him and assured him there are "no tapes of the Apprentice where I used such a bad and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa". "Oh, oh, cheese and crackers, I- I don't love that you are leaving but, but I do love cheese and crackers'".
"Wacky Omarosa, who got fired three times on The Apprentice, now got fired for the last time". "Not only is this flat-out false (I've never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn't even make an effort to call or email me to verify". "And the bottom line is, I can tell you for a fact she was complicit, but she also did the bidding, and she wanted to prove that she was in their camp because she used to be a Democrat".
"In my opinion, Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce him", Manigault Newman writes in her new book, Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House.
"Nobody even told me", Trump said on the recording. They may get fired for doing so, as they work at the pleasure of the president, but they can't be penalized for talking about their public service, according to the experts.
Trump officials and a number of outside critics denounced the recordings as a serious breach of ethics and security - and White House aides anxious about what else Manigault Newman may have captured in the West Wing. She made it up.
US sends home Korean War remains handed over by North Korea
The Pentagon said it's "absolutely" considering sending USA personnel to North Korea to search for more missing Americans. The remains were turned over after President Donald Trump's Singapore summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un .

Putin invites Trump to Moscow for second meeting after Washington postponed plans
Scaramucci also told Tapper that the decision to ban Collins from the press event came from President Trump, himself. It is not immediately clear if Mr Putin was referring to a formal invitation or a verbal one in spirit.
Manigault Newman also accused Trump of using racial slurs against George Conway, who is half Filipino.
Speculation and rumors about The Apprentice tapes have been swirling since the leak of the infamous Access Hollywood tape, which showed Trump using lewd and sexually aggressive language in 2005.
"Look at her MANY recent quotes saying", he added in a second tweet, "such wonderful and powerful things about me - a true Champion of Civil Rights - until she got fired".
Manigault Newman said, "There's a lot of very corrupt things happening in the White House and I am going to blow the whistle on a lot of them".
That crisis showed the need for a fast and secure communications center to handle large amounts of national security information coming in from many places to the president.
He said that Newman made up the story about him and that the "fake news" only listened to her because she had turned against him.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders had referred vaguely to an "ethics agreement" when asked about the NDAs earlier this year.
