Trump cracked joke after U.S. soldiers were killed in Niger

The ranting and raving about Russian Federation and Clinton is behavior typical of Trump, but the release of the recording is just the latest in a series of tapes that Manigault Newman claims she made while serving in the White House. "But they found out, it's definitely illegal and it's illegal from a campaign standpoint, from a campaign financing standpoint".

On the tape, the president explains that the attacks were carried out by terrorists from the Middle East who went into Africa "to try and, you know, cause problems there".

President Donald Trump drew laughs from some of his aides as he joked about what a "rough business" terrorism is while discussing an ambush in Niger that left four US soldiers dead previous year, according to a covert recording released Monday.

"But, um, but that is - you know people don't say that the reason they're there is because we forced them out and it's not almost as intense, but it's pretty intense, you see that happening".

Behar also denied Trump's claim (as relayed by Newman) that Behar "used to kiss his ass". "I don't think I'd want to be a terrorist now", Trump concluded, as his aides laughed.

Those killed in the attack included Army Sergeant La David Johnson, who ran almost a half mile on foot in an attempt to get away from the enemy before being pinned down and killed. "When people say come forward and give us proof he's unfit, give us proof he's unhinged, here is it, Donald Trump raw, showing you just how unhinged, how inappropriate he is".

Syria threatened with 'stronger response' if it uses chemical weapons in Idlib
President Trump has threatened to launch a massive attack against Assad if he carries out a massacre in Idlib, the WSJ reports. Many of Idlib's residents have already fled fighting in other areas of the country during Syria's seven-year civil war.

While dropping one of her audiotapes on Monday's "The View", Manigault Newman said she thinks a rumored "racial slur" tape, featuring Trump using the n-word during the making of "The Apprentice," not only exists but will be released before the midterm elections.

As the New York Daily News noted, the audio was from a closed-door White House meeting after the October 4, 2017, attack on a group of ISIS forces in the African nation.

"It's embarrassing for the press to keep giving her a platform", she added.

She then knocked Pence for his belief that Jesus Christ speaks personally to him and tells him what to say.

The Trump campaign has filed an arbitration claim against her that alleges she violated the terms of her 2016 confidentiality agreement.
