*Donald Trump on Tuesday referred to former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog.”

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!” Trump tweeted Tuesday.

This latest mud-slinging toward the lone African-American to have served in a senior role in the White House comes as he denies her claims of hearing audio tapes of him using the “n-word” on the set of “The Apprentice.”

He tweeted Monday: “I don’t have that word in my vocabulary, and never have. She made it up.”

Manigault Newman, who crafted a career as a reality show villainess after multiple appearances on “The Apprentice,” has claimed she heard tapes where Trump repeatedly used the racial slur during filming of his former NBC reality show. In an interview Monday with Chris Matthews, she claimed that Trump used the epithet while referring to Kwame Jackson, who was on the cast with her during the show’s first season.

“It sounded as if he used it every day,” Manigault Newman said.

Contacted for comment, Jackson declined, telling NBC News he’s taking a “Hard pass on all things Omarosa.”

Omarosa claimed that the person in possession of the tape worked on the show’s production staff and plans to use the recording for political purposes.

“And they saw it — took it on themselves to actually document this so that they could expose him for the racist that he is,” Manigault Newman said.

Trump claimed in his tweet Monday night that Mark Burnett, the creator of “The Apprentice,” called him to say that no such tapes exist.
