Who is Omarosa? And why is she causing such a stir?

Trump has responded with characteristic classlessness and racism, calling her a "dog". "Clearly, if you come on board the campaign, like, we can't have, we got to.", Lara Trump is heard saying. In a press release he said: "Omarosa has proven herself time and time again not to be trustworthy from the day she was sacked from the Clinton administration, to when she was sacked from (NBC's "The Apprentice") and ... her firing from the Trump administration".

Manigault Newman claims Trump officials offered her a job on the campaign as a way of silencing her, after she was sacked from the White House. In the tape, recorded last December just days after Omarosa left the White House, Lara Trump, Donald Trump's daughter-in-law, is heard offering Omarosa $15,000 a month in exchange for a small role in the Trump campaign.

Amid the fray, Melania Trump stayed out of sight and beyond the scope of cameras - so it's impossible to say which designers she wore this week. "My clients will not be intimidated by hollow legal threats", she wrote.

"I want to see this nation united as opposed to divided", she said. Perhaps the best thing that could have been said about her up until now is that most people probably didn't know who she was. The president's campaign filed arbitration, claiming she breached a 2016 nondisclosure agreement (NDA). "I don't have any fear".

The White House has countered by branding Manigault Newman as a disgruntled former staffer with credibility issues who is now trying to profit from a book based on false attacks against an individual she has called a mentor and has admired for more than a decade.
