A first look into Omarosa Manigault-Newman's expose on President Donald Trump, “Unhinged,” was released to The Guardian Friday. In it, the former White House adviser accuses the president of being a racist.
Manigault-Newman claims there are tapes of Trump using the “N-word” multiple times on set of “The Apprentice.”
Beyond that, Manigault-Newman delves into Trump's personal attacks on White House Counselor, Kellyane Conway's husband, George Conway. In the book she quotes the president shouting racial abuses towards George, who is half Filipino.
“'Would you look at this George Conway article?'” she quotes the president as saying. “'F**ing FLIP! Disloyal! F**king Goo-goo.'”

Manigault-Newman's relationship with the president began on NBC's “The Apprentice” and continued to the White House. At one point, she was the most prominent African American in the White House, until her dismissal last December.
Manigault-Newman credits her departure to her discovering the bigoted nature of the president.
She claims she had a “growing realization that Donald Trump was indeed a racist, a bigot and a misogynist. My certainty about the N-word tape and his frequent uses of that word were the top of a high mountain of truly appalling things I’d experienced with him, during the last two years in particular.”
She continued, highlighting her “disturbing” realizations. “It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist,“ she wrote. ”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.”
The title of the book, to be released next week, reflects Manigault-Newman's thoughts on the president's mentality. In a passage from the tell-all, she claims, “the only other explanation was that his mental state was so deteriorated that the filter between the worst impulses of his mind and his mouth were completely gone.”
Manigault-Newman is scheduled to appear on “Meet the Press” on Sunday to discuss the upcoming book.
