Donald Trump dismisses former Apprentice star Omarosa as a 'lowlife' ahead of critical book

Donald Trump dismisses former Apprentice star Omarosa as a 'lowlife' ahead of critical bookPresident Donald Trump has one word to describe former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman: “Lowlife.” Ms Manigault Newman claims in an upcoming book, Unhinged, that Mr Trump used racial slurs on the set of his reality show The Apprentice. She also says she later concluded that he is a racist and a bigot. On Saturday, reporters asked Mr Trump during an event at his golf club in New Jersey if he felt betrayed by Ms Manigault Newman. He responded: “Lowlife. She’s a lowlife.” Ms Manigault Newman was a contestant on The Apprentice and later served as a senior adviser to the president. In the book, she paints Mr Trump as scattered, self-absorbed, misogynistic and insecure. The book is set for publication on Tuesday. The White House has already slammed it as “riddled with lies and false accusations”.

In the book, Ms Manigault Newman claims without evidence that tapes exist of Mr Trump using the N-word repeatedly on the reality show’s set. She acknowledges she had never been able to obtain or hear the tapes but said three unnamed sources had described their contents. She alleges that Mr Trump has exhibited signs of a “mental decline that could not be denied” and says she went as far as printing out a study linking Diet Coke consumption to dementia and strokes and putting it in his briefing stack. She also described him as a man who “loved conflict, chaos and confusion; he loved seeing people argue or fight.” In the press pool today, I asked @realDonaldTrump if he had a response to Omarosa. He held hand to mouth, as if to whisper: “Lowlife. She’s a lowlife.”— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) August 11, 2018 Ms Manigault Newman also alleges that Mr Trump’s allies tried to buy her silence after she left the White House, offering her $15,000 a month to serve in a “senior position” on his 2020 re-election campaign along with a stringent nondisclosure agreement. She says when she turned down the offer, she received letters from Mr Trump’s lawyers telling her to stay quiet.

Cambodia dismisses poll criticism, opposition laments 'death of democracy'

Cambodia dismisses poll criticism, opposition laments 'death of democracy'By Prak Chan Thul and Amy Sawitta Lefevre PHNOM PENH (Reuters) – Cambodia woke to another chapter of rule by strongman Prime Minister Hun Sen on Monday, a day after his Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) declared victory in a general election that rights groups said was neither free nor fair. The White House said it would consider steps, including an expansion of visa restrictions placed on some Cambodian government members, in response to “flawed elections” in which there was no significant challenger to Hun Sen. CPP spokesman Sok Eysan said on Sunday the party won an estimated 100 out of 125 parliamentary seats.
