  • President Kellyanne Conway and Omarosa Manigault left attend an event celebrating Womens History Month in the East Room at the White House

And Manigault Newman put some of the problems she described on stark display Sunday, surfacing a tape she surreptitiously recorded in the White House Situation Room.

Kellyanne Conway is hitting back at Omarosa Manigault Newman, claiming the former White House staffer is making up stories to sell books.

The Associated Press independently listened to the recording of the conversation between Ms Manigault Newman and Mr Kelly, in which Mr Kelly is heard referring to potential "difficulty" in Ms Manigault Newman's future "relative to your reputation".

"You have to have your own back, because otherwise you'll look back and see 17 knives in your back", she said of her decision to record conversations in the White House.

Donald Trump has called Omarosa Manigault Newman "a lowlife" in his first public response to the former White House aide's tell-all book. She was a contestant on the first season of NBC's "The Apprentice", and later worked on Trump's presidential campaign.

In the recording, which Manigault Newman quotes extensively in her new book, "Unhinged", Kelly can be heard saying that he wants to talk with Manigault Newman about leaving the White House.

On NBC's Meet the Press, Manigault Newman claimed that Pierson told her she had heard Trump say the N-word, a claim Pierson rejected. While writing the book, "three separate sources" had "described the same exact statements", she said.

She says, "I heard his voice as clear as you and I are sitting here".

Manigault Newman, however, remained employed at the White House for several months after the deadly Charlottesville rally and did not leave voluntarily. She also said the doors were locked.

Trump was responding to a question from New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman about Manigault Newman's tell-all memoir that was announced this week.

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. But I mean, the reality is, Jonathan, the media ridiculed and mocked Omarosa for the full year plus that she was in the White House.

Manigault Newman said the tape shows that Trump has no idea what goes on in the White House.

Reports have been circulating for years that outtakes from the reality television show exist in which Trump can be heard saying the N-word. When you walk into a meeting with John Kelly, who has refused to meet with me the whole time he's there, in the Situation Room, Chuck. "This is somebody who gave a glowing appraisal of Donald Trump the businessman".

"This White House has a problem with the truth", Manigault Newman writes, seeming to pre-empt the pushback the West Wing launched even before the publication date.

"Yes, I was complicit." said Manigault Newman, who was the highest-ranking black employee in the White House.
