According to excerpts reported by Newsweek, the former reality television star points to two of the first lady's outfits: the pink "pussy bow" blouse she wore after the "Access Hollywood" tape circulated, and the "I don't really care, do u?" jacket she donned as the administration fielded widespread criticism over its "zero tolerance" immigration policy.
"Taken as a whole, all of her style rebellions have served the same purpose,” Manigault Newman writes in her book. "I believe Melania uses style to punish her husband."
Manigault Newman, in her highly anticipated book "Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House," also claims the first lady cannot wait for Trump to leave office so she can divorce him, according to Newsweek.
Manigault Newman in recent days has released two audio recordings from her time at the White House.
The second is a recording of a private phone call with President Trump after her firing from the White House. On the call, Trump said that he did not know she had been fired. He also suggested he was disappointed in the firing.
Explosive anecdotes from Manigault Newman's book have also been circulating for the past week, including her claims that Trump used the N-word during tapings of his reality show "The Apprentice," which she appeared on.
White House officials have framed Manigault Newman as a disgruntled former employee trying to get attention.
"Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time," Trump tweeted on Monday. "She never made it, never will."
"She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok," the president wrote.
Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart. I would rarely see her but heard....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 13, 2018
Trump also referred to Omarosa as a "lowlife."
