New Omarosa Tape Appears to Show That Trump Didn’t Know She Was Fired
Omarosa Manigault-Newman has released a tape of a phone call that she says she received from President Trump the day after she was fired in which he appears to have no idea that she’d been dismissed by Chief of Staff John Kelly. The man said to be Trump says: “Omarosa, what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving—what happened?” After Omarosa says Kelly told her they wanted her to leave, the man purported to be Trump goes on to say: “No, nobody even told me about it. You know they run a big operation but I didn’t know it. I don’t know that. Goddamn it. I don’t love you leaving at all.” On Saturday, Trump blasted his former Apprentice co-star as a “lowlife” in response to her claims that he is a racist and a bigot.
