Ivanka Trump: No room in USA for 'white supremacy, neo-nazism'

Omarosa Manigault Newman has changed her story on whether she's heard a recording in which President Trump uses the n-word, but one does not need a possibly non-existent tape to demonstrate that the administration does not have the greatest record on race. It added that she blatantly ignored security procedures by taping Kelly in the Situation Room, a location in the basement of the West Wing, where highly-sensitive conversations take place.

On ABC News This Week, White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway was pressed on Newman's claim that she was offered a hush-money contract with the Trump re-election campaign for $US15,000 ($20,000) a month. In her book, Newman describes hearing about the tape but not hearing it herself.

On Saturday, reporters asked Trump if he felt betrayed by Manigault Newman.

"What she is saying in the book - she didn't hear about those tapes recently", Thompson explained.

Conway brushed off the implications of Karl's question, saying diversity within Trump's White House shouldn't matter because the president is doing great things for all Americans.

The Associated Press independently listened to the recording of the conversation between Manigault Newman and Kelly, which she said was one of many she'd surreptitiously recorded for her own protection.

"I have worked alongside that man for over two straight years now without interruption; I have never a single time heard him use a racial slur about anyone", she said.

Authorities eventually forced the crowd to disperse, but a vehicle later barrelled into the crowd of peaceful counterprotesters. On Friday, businesses are handed out pins with a singular message in mind: spread love, and move forward united.

"They were not offering me a real job", Manigault Newman said on NBC.

During the interview, Manigault Newman called President Trump a "con", a "liar" and a "racist", doubling down on her claim that the current administration does not care about African-Americans. "I heard his voice as clear as you and I are sitting here", she said.

He can be heard in another clip aired by the network Sunday morning suggesting a smooth exit would help her reputation, a remark that Manigault Newman told NBC she took as a threat. But she did say it was possible he's used it without her knowledge, "Because Donald Trump talks about everyone behind their backs".

In the book, Manigault Newman painted the president as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

"And then to brag about it on national television further proves the lack of character and integrity of this disgruntled former White House employee", Huckabee Sanders continued. So that's the truth that we don't want to tell, right?

She insists her firing last December was because she knew too much about a possible audio recording of the President uttering a racial epithet, which she claims was the subject of deep consternation among campaign - and later White House - aides. Ronna McDaniel, head of the Republican committee chair, tweeted.
