Former White House aide Omarosa Onee Manigault-Newman has unleashed a collective freak-out on Twitter after she revealed she recorded a conversation with chief of staff John Kelly from inside the White House Situation Room.

It was a highly unusual admission, which immediately drew fire from allies of Mr Trump and national security experts.

Trump was responding to a question from the press pool about Manigault Newman's tell-all memoir that was announced this week.

According to the New York Times, Manigault claims in the book that by the time she left the White House in January it "finally sunk in that the person [she'd] thought [she'd] known so well for so long was actually a racist".

Manigault told NBC host Chuck Todd that she took that as a threat.

"This is a White House where everybody lies. you have to have your back", she said about recording the conversation.

But the other recording she discussed Sunday could prove equally explosive.

Manigault Newman worked in the White House for almost a year as an assistant to the president and the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

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. "That is downright criminal", she said.

Mourinho was speaking at a 9am press conference and his words did not equivocally rule out the possibility of something happening. The players gave everything, they gave what they had. "He's come back with a good spirit and a fantastic attitude".

"I've never heard of a more serious breach of protocol", said Ned Price, who served as spokesman of the National Security Council in the Obama administration. "Not only is it not typical, something like this is unprecedented".

"We must come together as a nation", he said. In a subsequent interview, she changed her story to say that she had heard Trump utter that word, a reversal that highlighted her not-exactly-sterling level of credibility.

President Donald Trump was roundly condemned past year for saying there was "blame on both sides" for the violence, condemning the anti-fascists who came "with clubs in their hands".

Katrina Pierson, a former Trump campaign spokeswoman, said Manigault Newman is embarrassing herself by "creating salacious lies and distortions".

"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.

In an interview aired Sunday on CBS News' "Face The Nation", Scott - the GOP's only African American member of the upper chamber - denied Trump's rhetoric as racist.

She also claims she saw him behaving "like a dog off the leash" at numerous events he attended without his wife, First Lady Melania Trump.

The former White House staffer detailed her claim in her forthcoming book, writing that the offer was a way to keep her from speaking out. 'Since Trump was ever the germaphobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper.
