".@MarkBurnettTV called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a bad and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa".

Omarosa Manigault Newman has a stash of video, emails, text messages and other documentation supporting the claims in her tell-all book about her time in the Trump White House, a person with direct knowledge of the records told The Associated Press Friday.

Manigault Newman has made clear that she plans to continue selectively releasing the pieces of evidence if President Donald Trump and his associates continue to attack her credibility and challenge the claims in her book, "Unhinged".

Manigault Newman interjects quickly, "Oh, God no".

In the recording, Lara Trump can be heard saying, "It sounds a little like, obviously, that there are some things you've got in the back pocket to pull out".

Standing beside Mr Putin outside Meseberg castle, Ms Merkel said she would also raise human rights issues and bilateral relations. Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian news agencies that the Russian president spent about an hour at the wedding.


In her book, Manigault Newman claims that the president used the "N-word" and that she was offered $15,000 a month to work on the president's campaign shortly after she was sacked by chief of staff John Kelly. "Everything, everybody positive, right?" Trump has responded with characteristic classlessness and racism, calling her a "dog". She has accused the president of being a racist. In one from August a year ago, she makes mention of "fake news", but then proceeds to catalogue a series of achievements by the president in a manner more enthusiastic than combative.

That may change. The North Carolina native, an equestrian and triathlon athlete, who has said she and her family sometime "pine for the old days", has had to tap deeper into her competitive side with the emergence of the Manigault Newman affair.

Lara Trump has framed the recordings as the betrayal of a woman she considered a friend, someone she was trying to do a favor for.

The trepidation about what she will role out next comes as the staff has already been buffeted by the release of a tape by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen where he and Trump discuss payments to American Media Inc. However, since his run for presidency, the commemorative plaque has repeatedly been vandalized, with the most recent scandal having seen a man reducing the star to rubble with a pickaxe that had been hidden in a guitar case.
