President Donald Trump called former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman a "lowlife" Saturday.

Many across social media are giving Omarosa Manigault Newman the virtual side-eye over her seemingly contradictory statements about Donald Trump's use of the N-word.

In addition to Newman's claims that Trump is a racist and a bigot, Newman claims that first lady Melania Trump will divorce her husband when his presidency ends and that she was offered "hush money" to stay mum about her time in the White House.

Trump was responding to a question from New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman about Manigault Newman's tell-all memoir that was announced this week.

The White House initially said Newman had resigned but after the "Big Brother" appearance said she had been fired.

She told him to forget about it and writes that "we laughed, he wanted me to believe he was kidding".

And Sanders is correct - both Manigault Newman and Trump once had a close relationship after she became a star contestant and popular villain on his hit reality TV show, "The Apprentice".

After his election she joined his administration as communications director for the Office of Public Liaison before leaving in January.

According to multiple reports, she cites three unnamed sources in "Unhinged" who claim to have heard Trump use the "N-word" repeatedly during the making of The Apprentice.

'During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track. Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African-Americans as a whole'.

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.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: 'This book is riddled with lies and false accusations.
