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

Omarosa Manigault Newman has more than secret recordings of members of the Trump administration and President Donald Trump's family, according to a new report - and she's not afraid to make them public.

"We have a lot to lose and in fact, we're losing right now because Donald Trump is disingenuous about his engagement and his outreach", Manigault Newman told the Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC's "Politics Nation". But Lara Trump, wife of the president's son Eric, has largely managed to buck that trend over the past couple of years.

She continues, "Since Donald is fully aware of however she acquired her permanent citizenship, he could, if there were anything fishy around it, expose the methods and somehow invalidate it". But she made it clear that is just her "personal opinion", not a fact.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, Marla Maples, and Megyn Kelly attend The Hollywood Reporter's Most Powerful People In Media 2018 at The Pool on April 12, 2018 in New York City.

Manigault Newman's Sunday comments cap a week of revelations she's trickled out about life in the White House, including a tape of her firing and claims about a tape of Trump using the N-word when he was star of the reality show The Apprentice. She also accused his administration of trying to dismantle former President Barack Obama's accomplishments.

"That's why I reached out to offer her a position with the 2020 Trump Campaign before we knew anything about the gross violations of ethics and integrity during her White House tenure", Lara Trump continued.

'[The Apprentice producer] Mark Burnett called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a awful and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa, ' the president tweeted last week. Look at her MANY recent quotes saying... Trump has denied this, saying on Twitter that "I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have". For his part, President Trump has claimed that Omarosa has "zero credibility".

The president went on to call Manigault Newman a "crazed, crying lowlife" and "that dog".

But it may get worse for her former coworkers.

Manigault Newman this week infuriated Trump with the release of conversations that she secretly recorded during her time working for his administration, which is the subject of a tell-all book she is now promoting.
