But Manigault Newman was defiant, telling the Associated Press on Tuesday, "I will not be silenced". It adds to a narrative of a White House mired in chaos and dysfunction - a storyline Democrats hope will convince exasperated suburban and female voters to support them or at least stay at home.

His latest tweet about Ms Manigault Newman said: "When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn't work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog".

According to the Washington Examiner, Ryan was compelled to address Newman after the former Apprentice star began her first stop on her book tour with a visit to Meet the Press. On the one hand, Omarosa has very little credibility because she spent years shilling for the world's most notorious liar, Donald Trump.

"She claims to have heard from someone who heard from me that I heard Trump use the N-word", he said in an August 10 tweet.

"Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. has filed an arbitration against Omarosa Manigault Newman", said a campaign official in a statement. "He uses his rallies to really encourage people to bring down African-Americans".

On Monday, Manigault Newman released another recording in which Trump appeared to express surprise that she had been fired.

Trump and another official fired back at her claims and called the alleged slurs "disgusting". CBS said it has not confirmed the authenticity of the tape. "I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!" he wrote.

She said Trump hired Manigault Newman because he "wanted to give her a chance".

"He said it", Pierson says. She said Sunday that she had listened to one after the book closed.

Furyk said in a news conference earlier in the week that his talented US side is sure to have its hands full at Le Golf National. It will be impossible to overlook him now, not with the Wanamaker Trophy to go with his back-to-back US Open titles.

Earlier this year, the Washington Post reported that Trump sought confidentiality agreements from senior White House staffers. Democratic U.S. Representative Frederica Wilson, who is also an African-American, told CNN. "He has taken this country to its knees".

Senator Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona, called the language used by Trump "unbecoming of a President of the United States". "Turns out any time someone asks, 'Is the president aware of what's going on, ' Kelly says, 'Let's not go down that road".

Even some Trump friends suggested that the president had gone too far. "I can't stand @OMAROSA a bully, back stabber & big mouth. How dare he call anyone a dog?".

When Matthews asked her if the source who recorded this video was a Democrat, she said she didn't have information regarding the person's political affiliation.

The president, who has an aversion to dogs and other pets, considers canine comparisons to be among his most devastating put-downs.

Upon hearing the allegations, Manigault-Newman said she was shocked and brushed them off prior to hearing the tape for herself.

In her book she claimed she never actually heard Trump using racial slurs, however, now after hearing the tape, her views have changed.

He had to laugh, though, at Omarosa talking about the White House allegedly covering up that Trump is "mentally declined".
