Republican pollster Frank Luntz is denying Omarosa Manigault Newman's claim that she heard President Donald Trump use the "N-word", saying she didn't contact him to verify what she wrote about him in her new book.

Manigault Newman, who got her big break as a contender on Trump's canceled TV show, The Apprentice, has, in the words of the NY magazine's Jonathan Chait "met a wall of skepticism bordering on reflexive disbelief". "I said, 'Instead of the Bible?'" she allegedly said. In the book, she paints Trump as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure.

Manigault Newman, who had previously appeared with Trump on his reality television show The Apprentice, also said in the book that she believed he was "a racist, a bigot and a misogynist".

"He asked me, 'Omarosa, what do you think about me getting sworn in on The Art of the Deal?'" Manigault Newman writes, according to Slate.

Trump would turn to hateful phrases when discussing White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway's husband George Conway, who is half Filipino. "Yeah. The Art of the Deal is a bestseller!"

President Donald Trump called Omarosa a "lowlife" in his first public response to her new tell-all book.

She also described him as a man who "loved conflict, chaos and confusion; he loved seeing people argue or fight".

After his election she joined his administration as communications director for the Office of Public Liaison before leaving in January.

"During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track". Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'.

A previous Inquisitr article also notes that Omarosa has claimed that Donald Trump eats paper.

"It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks", she said.
