Omarosa Manigault revealed another secretly recorded moment from her days in the White House, releasing a small excerpt of a phone call between her and President Donald Trump after she was fired from the administration.
The audio snippet has Trump calling the former “Apprentice” star shortly after she was fired by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, to offer his condolences — and to deny any responsibility for her dismissal.
“Omarosa, what’s going on? I just saw in the news you’re thinking about leaving. What happened?” said Trump.
“Gen. Kelly — Gen. Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave,” Manigault answered.
“No. Nobody even told me about it. You know, they run a big operation but I didn’t know it. I didn’t know that. God dammit! I don’t love you leaving at all,” said Trump.
The audio was revealed during an interview on the “Today” show with Savannah Guthrie, where Omarosa appeared as a guest as part of a book tour promoting her account of the White House, “Unhinged.”
While on set, Omarosa said that she wasn’t sure whether Trump was telling the truth about not knowing, but if it were true, it should worry everyone.
“That should be alarming to every American,” she said. “That the president of the United States does not know what is happening with an assistant to the president who has known him for 15 years.”
Before she was fired in January 2018, Omarosa served as the director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison and made $179,700 a year.
Over the weekend, the former reality show star also released audio she secretly recorded with Gen. Kelly in the White House Situation Room, which revealed the exact moment when she was fired. In that recording, Kelly admits he did it without Trump’s knowledge.
