“Omarosa what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving? What happened?” the president can be heard saying on the tape, which Manigault Newman said was created a day after she was terminated in December. 

“No. I. I. Nobody even told me about it,” he goes on to say in the tape.

“You know they run a big operation, but I didn’t know it,” he added. "I didn’t know that. Goddamn it. I don’t love you leaving at all.”

Sources told the news outlet that Manigault Newman’s tape of Ivanka Trump and her husband offering their condolences will show that the couple also claimed ignorance of her firing.

The reality TV star is kicking off the press tour for her new book "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House."

In her book, Manigault Newman accuses the president of regularly using the "n-word" during tapings of his reality show "The Apprentice" and said she was offered money to keep quiet about her time at the White House.
