This is just one of a list of claims made by Omarosa Manigault Newman in a book lifting the lid on her former boss that threatens to reduce what's left of Trump's reputation to tatters - and could even destroy his presidency.
During a White House pool spray, Trump responded to a shouted question about Manigault and her book- which claims that there are tapes of Trump using the N-word - by calling her a "lowlife". Asked by TMZ if it's fair to say that the president is "causing tensions among African-Americans right now" after the "LeBron James situation", she replied with a s short sentence: "he wants to start a race war".
According to her, Trump suggested he was sworn in over the book instead of the Bible.
Manigault Newman, who had previously appeared with Trump on his reality television show The Apprentice, also said in the book that she believed he was "a racist, a bigot and a misogynist".

That was enough for the World Health Organization to label the idea that glyphosate caused cancer as "probable". Plaintiff Dewayne Johnson reacts after hearing the verdict to his case against Monsanto in San Francisco .
"I rejected what other people said about him because they didn't know him like I did".
In the book, Manigault Newman claims without evidence that tapes exist of Trump using the N-word repeatedly on the reality show's set.
She also alleges that Trump has exhibited signs of a "mental decline that could not be denied" and says she went as far as printing out a study linking Diet Coke consumption to dementia and strokes and putting it in his briefing stack. At the time, a source familiar with her departure told the Guardian that she had always been uncomfortable defending the Trump administration as the most prominent African American woman in the White House.
But CNN reports that The White House has called Omarosa a "disgruntled former employee" who is trying to make a buck off of fake stories.
