Rogue White House ex-staffer Omarosa releases Trump tape

The US President railed against illegal immigration in the US calling the situation a “disaster”

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman revealed new secret recordings on the president Monday after publicly releasing audio from the situation room over the weekend.

Omarosa Manigault Newman's former White House colleagues are looking into legal options to stop her from releasing more tapes and to punish her for secretly recording her conversation with Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, White House officials tell ABC News.

NBC News and other outlets reported at the time that Newman had been escorted out of the White House after she tried to enter the presidential residence in response to hearing she'd been fired. "And as we heard on the recording that you just played, he doesn't even know what's happening in his White House".

Trump said in a trio of tweets that Manigault Newman "begged me for a job", is a "loser" who is "vicious but not smart" and "nasty to people", and that she was basically an absentee employee of no real import.

"You know they run a big operation but I didn't know it". But he added: "this is a modern day form of communication and I know the Fake News Media will be working overtime to make even Wacky Omarosa look legitimate as possible".

She alleges that Trump has exhibited signs of a "mental decline that could not be denied" and says she went as far as printing out a study linking Diet Coke consumption to dementia and strokes and putting it in his briefing stack.

For her own part, Manigault Newman appeared to be prepared to go to the wall for Trump as well, until she was let go.

Fans have been lining up to watch top golfers like Tiger Woods , Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas play in the practice rounds. Woods briefly led the British Open on Sunday but shared sixth last month at Carnoustie, while Fleetwood shared 12th.

In an exclusive interview Sunday on "Meet The Press", Manigault Newman told NBC's Chuck Todd that one of the reasons she stayed at the White House for as long as she did was because she felt a responsibility to represent the African-American community. She played a tiny snippet of audio reportedly capturing John Kelly's voice from inside the White House Situation Room during the meeting when she was sacked. "They told me I could work from home if I wanted to work". The two have a 15-year history dating back to Manigault-Newman's unforgettable turn on "The Apprentice". Newman provided what she said were copies of those agreements to "Meet the Press".

President Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, says she may have broken the law by recording private conversations at the White House. The thought of her recording other employees and the leader of the free world is "completely disgraceful".

The room, located in the basement of the West Wing, is designated a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, and staff are not permitted to bring in cellphones or recording devices.

Given this assessment, one might ask why Manigault Newman was given the high-ranking title "assistant to the president" with pay of $179,700 a year.

During her exclusive interview on the "Today Show", Ms. Manigault Newman questioned who holds power in the White House.

She said she released the clip - which security experts have declared a massive breach of standards - to defend herself from a White House administration which constantly lies.

When asked to respond to her book over the weekend, Trump called Manigault-Newman a "lowlife". I would rarely see her but heard...really bad things. "I had a blind spot when it came to Donald Trump".
