Watch live: White House holds press briefing amid Omarosa furor

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is set to answer reporters' questions Tuesday afternoon.

The briefing is Sanders's first since the release of former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman's new book "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House."

Explosive claims in the memoir — such as the allegation that recordings exist of President Trump using racial slurs during tapings of "The Apprentice" — have dominated the news cycle since late last week. 

Manigault-Newman paints Trump as unstable and unfit for the presidency in the tell-all, which was officially released Tuesday.

Trump has clapped back at Manigault-Newman on Twitter, calling her a "dog" and a "lowlife."

The briefing, also the first since Trump returned from a week of vacation in New Jersey, is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m.
