Omarosa Manigault-Newman has doubled down on her criticism of Donald Trump.
The Apprentice-contestant-turned-White-House-staffer made countless headlines this week after the Daily Mail published excerpts from her new tell-all book, Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House. The forthcoming memoir includes some totally believable accusations against POTUS, including his alleged use of the N-word.
On Saturday, TMZ caught up with the former Trump aide at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., where she was asked if the president’s criticism of LeBron James caused “tensions among African-Americans.”
“He wants to start a race war,” Omarosa told the cameraman. “He’s succeeding.”
During her brief chat with the gossip site, Omarosa also suggested there was a lot of boning going down inside the White House. Though she didn’t reveal any names, she did refer to a staffer that was known as the “White House Barbie.” Let the speculation begin.

On Friday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to discredit the claims made in Omarosa’s book, calling the 44-year-old a “disgruntled” former employee.
“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,” Sanders said in a statement. “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.”
