White House will 'try to diversify' staff, Sarah Sanders says

According to figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, while 700,000 jobs have been added for African Americans during Trump's time in office, almost 3 million were added for black workers during President Obama's tenure. In her first interview with an African-American media outlet, TheGrio, with Natasha Alford, Manigault-Newman recalled the moment when she heard the nasty, derogatory comments from Trump and her reaction.

The NBC star was referencing Trump's Tuesday morning tweet that read, "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".

Omarosa got fired in December by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who informed her in the Situation Room, which she secretly recorded. Some of them offered hope for Manigault Newman, however conditional.

Critics condemned Trump for what they said were racial and sexist undertones.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: "I can't guarantee anything, but I can tell you that the president addressed this question directly".

August 15, 2018Kilmeade urges the President to "do the Eminem thing!" "He always fights fire with fire and doesn't hold back on doing that across the board", Sanders said.

"This President, since he took office, in the year and a half that he's been here, has created 700,000 new jobs for African Americans", Sanders said.

Orrin Hatch, an ally of Trump's and president pro tempore, tells me this of Trump calling Omarosa a "dog:" "No, I'm not comfortable with that".

CBS News' parent company, CBS Corp (CBS.N), owns Simon and Schuster Inc, which published her book. "In Trump World, everyone lies". "Yes, they met", said spokeswoman Chantal Gagnon.

"I want to see this nation united as opposed to divided", she said. The only way to shut him down, she said, is to "don't give him the oxygen" that comes from news stories, clicks, and likes.

In her book, Manigault Newman accuses Trump of making derogatory statements about African-Americans, Filipinos and other minorities, as well as exhibiting "forgetfulness and frustration".

She was sacked from her senior White House role in December. She accused him of using his rowdy political rallies to divide, even suggesting Trump is promoting violence.

"She wore that jacket to hurt Trump, setting off a controversy that he would have to fix, prolonging the conversation about the administration's insensitivity, ruining the trip itself, and trying to make sure that no one asked her to do something like that again".

Manigault Newman, who has painted a damning picture of Trump and alleged there is a videotape of him using a racial slur, told The Associated Press she is not going away.

She describes a phone conversation about how to handle potential fallout with Lynne Patton, then an assistant to Eric Trump, a son of the president; then-Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson; and campaign communications director Jason Miller.

Beyond her word that the tape exists - and comedian Tom Arnold's claim that he's heard it - there is no proof.
