Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman said Friday that she had listened to a recording from “The Apprentice” in which President Trump uses the N-word.

The former Trump administration staffer and “The Apprentice” contestant told NPR that she had heard the tape directly, calling it a major factor that changed her opinion of the president, despite the fact that her own memoir says she was only told of the recording.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I heard the tape,” she said, adding: “Hearing it changed everything for me.”

In the book however, a passage near the end claims that she merely heard a recounting of the recording from a friend.

“On this phone conversation, I was told exactly what Donald Trump said – yes, the N-word and others in a classic Trump-goes-nuclear rant – and when he’d said them,” Manigault Newman’s book reads, according to NPR.

“During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track,” it continues.

On Friday, Manigault Newman insisted that the passage supported her claim, and that an NPR interviewer who confronted her over the discrepancy had merely not read the book.
