In the recording played on air, and which Manigault Newman quotes in the book, Kelly can be heard saying she can look at her time at the White House as a year of "service to the nation" and referring to potential "difficulty in the future relative to your reputation".
Manigault Newman, who starred on Trump's show "The Apprentice", was sacked from her administration position in December amid allegations of misconduct, including trying to stage her wedding photos on White House grounds. Apparently, she's got some secretly recorded audio of Trump that she's already shared with her close friends and will release in her book, which will be called Unhinged. "The false story ... that I tried to charge the residents of the White House, and it's a lie", she said.
The Washington Post reports that a White House source confirmed that the former Apprentice contestant walked in on the meeting and that she was told off for it. But then, shortly afterward, he said that while there were bad people in the white supremacist group, "you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides".
"It is hindsight. But I will say this to you, I was complicit with this White House deceiving this nation", she said. "No one. So I protected myself and I'm going to tell you, I'm so glad I did". "But when he talks that way, the way he does on this tape, it confirms that he is truly a racist".
The casting of Manigault Newman as unstable raises the question of why the Trump administration hired someone like her in the first place.

Capturing Ghazni even briefly would symbolically cut Afghanistan's second city of Kandahar off from the country's capital. The US disputed that figure, saying initial reports indicated there were "minimal Afghan security force casualties".
"Instead of telling the truth about all the good President Trump and his administration are doing to make America safe and prosperous, this book is riddled with lies and false accusations", she said.
This official says the White House doesn't know everything the former staffer has claimed because it appears they have not seen a copy of the book. "And so the only thing that's changed is that she's now selling books".
Ivanka Trump and her husband reportedly pressured her father to single out white supremacists and neo-Nazis immediately after the violence a year ago, and he did - and then reversed himself within a day, once again blaming both sides.
