Trump Unleashes On Omarosa After She Plays Recoding of Him on ‘Today’ Show

*Omarosa Manigault Newman visited the “Today” show this morning and released a recording of her conversation with President Donald Trump taken one day after she was kicked out of the White House by Chief of Staff John Kelly.

And right on cue, Trump responded via Twitter, calling his former adviser “vicious, but not smart,” “nasty to people” and that Kelly “told me she was a loser & nothing but problems.”

In the recording, made last December, Trump appears to be surprised that she is departing. NBC’s “Today” played the recording on Monday, along with a contentious interview with Manigault Newman. She is in the midst of promoting her new book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.”

“Omarosa, what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving? What happened?” Trump asks her.

“General Kelly – General Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave,” Manigault Newman responds.

“No… I, I – Nobody even told me about it,” Trump says.

“Wow,” she replies, to which Trump says, “You know they run a big operation, but I didn’t know it. I didn’t know that. Goddamn it. I don’t love you leaving at all.”

Trump tweeted about the recording minutes later, writing, “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…. really bad things. Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me – until she got fired!”
