The Hill reports:
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway pushed back on Sunday against claims from former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman that President Trump is a racist, attacking Newman’s credibility. “The first time I ever heard Omarosa suggest those awful things about this president are in this book,” Conway said, referencing Newman’s upcoming memoir that depicts Trump as a narcissist and a racist.
“And I think that Omarosa, unfortunately, has undercut her own credibility,” Conway added. “I have worked alongside that man for over two straight years now without interruption. I have never a single time heard him use a racial slur about anyone,” Conway added. “I also never heard Omarosa complain that he had done that,” she continued. “The only thing that’s changed is that she’s now selling books.”
