Kelly is heard on the recording telling Manigault Newman that she is being fired over "integrity violations". The Post has reviewed the agreement.
Manigault Newman, 44, met Trump in 2004 when she was a candidate on the American version of The Apprentice, which he hosted. He says if she chooses the later it will create difficulty with respect to her reputation. "They told me I could work from home, if I wanted to work". White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called it "riddled with lies and false accusations" and Trump on Saturday labelled Manigault Newman a "lowlife".
On Saturday, Trump blasted Newman as a "lowlife" in response to questions from reporters about her claims.
Sunday's interview marked the start of Newman's publicity tour for her forthcoming book, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House".
Quoting Trump's early, post-inauguration speech at the Central Intelligence Agency lamenting his inauguration crowd, Manigault Newman takes some editorial liberty, adding within quotation marks that Trump says, "Liars!" It's where contingency plans for nuclear launches have been developed. It's a lie. If I didn't have this recording, people would still think I was trying to set off alarms.
The Situation Room is a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility, or SCIF, and staff are not permitted to bring in cellphones or other recording devices.
Newman made the charge during an exclusive interview with NBC's "Meet the Press", days before the release of her new book on Tuesday, "Unhinged". "And obviously I felt miserably, because after that he gets up and he says that there are good people on both sides when he should have been denouncing what we saw as clearly racist, Nazis, going against the grain of this country". Trump launched his political career advancing the birther conspiracy about President Barack Obama.
Omarosa Manigault, White House Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison, talks with aides prior to a news conference by U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House in Washington, U.S., February 16, 2017.
"Being used by Donald Trump for so long, I was like the frog in the hot water. Obviously, I failed miserably".
At one point, he was asked about former White House adviser and reality star Newman.
