Omarosa Manigault Newman, a former White House staffer, may have as many as 200 secret recordings of her time with the Trump administration, according to the New York Times.

Manigault Newman also claims to have an audio recording of Trump using the N-word during a recording of The Apprentice. Trump on Monday denied the existence of any such tape, citing the show’s former producer, Mark Burnett.

“.@MarkBurnettTV called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a terrible and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa. I don’t have that word in my vocabulary, and never have. She made it up. Look at her MANY recent quotes saying… ‘Trump tweeted Monday.’ …such wonderful and powerful things about me – a true Champion of Civil Rights – until she got fired. Omarosa had Zero credibility with the Media (they didn’t want interviews) when she worked in the White House. Now that she says bad about me, they will talk to her. Fake News!”
