"This president since he took office, in the year and a half that he's been here has created 700,000 new jobs for African-Americans".
Few in the black community immediately rushed to defend Manigault Newman after she wrote a book titled "Unhinged" about her time in the White House. The former official, who first worked with Trump as a competitor on his reality show "The Apprentice", has also begun releasing recordings of private conversations she had with Trump and his associates.
"What I also know to be true, Omarosa doesn't fight fair", he said.
"The president of the United States is calling a woman of color a dog?".
The book and the recordings by the disgruntled 44-year-old Manigault Newman, once an ardent Trump ally, represents a stunning breach of presidential trust.
He has also insulted prominent African-Americans like US Congresswoman Maxine Waters and National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James, said that "many sides" are to blame for the violence at last year's white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and ripped African-American athletes for protesting racial injustice by kneeling for the anthem.
Team Trump responded furiously, launching a campaign to discredit her and pursuing legal action against her for breaking an apparent non-disclosure agreement.

The Taliban also destroyed a telecommunications tower on the city outskirts, cutting off landline and cellphone links to the city. But he said wounded people are still arriving at the city's only hospital, which has been overwhelmed by the casualties.
"In her secret tape recording of me, it was one of many times that I would placate Omarosa to move the discussion along because I was tired of her obsession over this alleged tape".
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly fired Omerosa.
"I had to go through the pain of witnessing his racism with my own eyes, and hearing it with my own ears, many times, until I couldn't deny it any longer", she claims, adding "I was complicit with this White House deceiving this nation".
Manigault Newman recalls a time when Trump paused a meeting during the campaign so everyone could marvel over Ivanka's form-fitted skirt. But the systematic approach with which Trump White House veterans have been offered plush gigs is.
"We have confidentiality agreements in the West Wing, absolutely we do", Trump counsellor Kellyanne Conway told ABC's "This Week" Sunday.
Ongoing allegations that a tape of Donald Trump using the N-word have resurfaced, after the White House refused to deny that those tapes might exist.
Mr Trump's tweet came shortly after Ms Manigault Newman appeared on "CBS This Morning" and released a new recording purportedly of a discussion in October 2016 among campaign aides about how to handle a tape on which Mr Trump is said to have used the n-word.
According to Manigault Newman, that's Trump's phrasing for "gay". This is a clip of the audio in which Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson is speaking. He said Manigault Newman had called him "a true champion of civil rights" until she was sacked.
