John Brennan Responds Trump Omarosa Comment What's 'Presidential'

Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former "Apprentice" star and estranged aide to President Donald Trump, claimed on Sunday that she recorded White House chief of staff John Kelly firing her in the Situation Room.

"Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time". You may have already learned via released audiotape that President Donald Trump claimed to be caught completely unaware finding out that his Chief of Staff John Kelly had fired her.

After Manigault Newman told Trump she'd been fired, he responded: "No, nobody even told me about it".

The recording, released on NBC's "Today" show, is purportedly a phone conversation between Trump and Manigault Newman after she was sacked from the White House. However, a new report suggests that the book, which is due for release on Tuesday, also throws shade at first lady Melania Trump, with Omarosa suggesting in its pages that Melania's fashion choices represent a deliberate attempt to "punish" and humiliate her husband. "People in the White House hated her", Trump wrote on his Twitter account. She even secretly recorded some conversations she had with the president himself.

On Monday, he took the criticism a step further, calling his former aide "vicious" and "not smart".

Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on Monday: "She was certainly violating national security regulations, which I think have the force of law". The president also pointed out Omarosa only had great things to say about him until she was sacked. She said Kelly was running the administration. And she also promised she has more audio recordings and is considering releasing them.

I saw Donald Trump being racist many times, ex-aide claims
The reliability of Omarosa Manigault's claims about what's been going on in the Trump White House is coming under some question. At the time, an early Apprentice producer took to Twitter to say "there are far worse" behind-the-scenes tapes from the show.

I would rarely see her but heard really bad things.

"They continue to deceive this nation by how mentally declined he is, about how hard it is for him to process complex information, how he is not engaged in some of the most important decisions that impacts our country", she said on NBC.

"It's come to my attention over the last few months that there's been some pretty, in my opinion, significant integrity issues related to you", he says, mentioning her use of government vehicles and "money issues and other things". She declined to say who had played her the recording.

Trump's only explanation for doing so is that Omarosa begged him with tears in her eyes.

All throughout the interview - which Chuck Todd should not have agreed to because it's clear her motives are dubious at best - Omarosa makes a number of wild claims.

NBC showed the agreement on air, which included a strict non-disparagement agreement that would have prevented Manigault Newman from demeaning or disparaging Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, the campaign, their families and businesses. "I used to reach out to her often and we have invited the president to our national conventions three times but nothing has happened on that front". Those same sympathizers gathered Sunday near the White House in support of Trump.

Saudi Arabia appears to threaten Canada in Tweet
Canada has said it is "gravely concerned" about the arrests and has called for those detained to be released immediately. Her brother Mr Badawi was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes for "insulting Islam" online back in 2014.

"Had I not recorded this, people would say, 'She has a credibility issue, ' " she said.

During her exclusive interview on the "Today Show", Ms. Manigault Newman questioned who holds power in the White House. "Damn it. I don't love you leaving at all".

For this reason, Ms Manigault Newman's transgression was not a complete shock. Manigault Newman asks Guthrie, to which Guthrie exasperatingly replies, "Yes".

Former President Barack Obama and other officials meet in the Situation Room.

Trump later tweeted that Manigault Newman has a "fully signed Non-Disclosure Agreement!"

Ms Newman effectively threw a hand grenade by claiming - without evidence - that she had heard a tape of Mr Trump using racist language against African-Americans.
