The president has ranted on Twitter, his staff members have been forced to defend themselves on cable news and now Trump has sued Omarosa. And after having worked alongside him for months, she has said that he is losing his mental faculties.

Manigault Newman claims Trump officials offered her a job on the campaign as a way of silencing her, after she was sacked from the White House.

And despite the Trump campaign filing litigation against her for allegedly violating a confidentiality agreement, Manigault Newman told the AP this week she will not back down.

But now, The Associated Press is reporting that she's preparing to trickle out a "treasure trove" of multimedia tidbits-piece-by-piece-in order to torture her former boss after her unceremonious and very public firing.

Matthew Chapman is a video game designer, science fiction author, and political reporter from Austin, TX. Why not pardon himself over an alleged visa payoff?' wrote Manigault-Newman.

The White House has countered by branding Manigault Newman as a disgruntled former staffer with credibility issues who is now trying to profit from a book based on false attacks against an individual she has called a mentor and has admired for more than a decade.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman has made the astonishing claim that President Donald Trump might deport First Lady Melania if she tried to leave him while he holds office. Lara Trump: "-keep everything, everybody positive, right?"

The two woman have been feuding this week after the former reality star released a secret recording of the two discussing a rumored tape of President Trump using the N-word during his time on NBC's "The Apprentice".

In another recording, Trump's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, is heard offering Manigault Newman $15,000 a month - after she was sacked from the White House - for a campaign job requiring her to be "positive". I don't have that word in my vocabulary, and never have.

That may change. The North Carolina native, an equestrian and triathlon athlete, who has said she and her family sometime "pine for the old days", has had to tap deeper into her competitive side with the emergence of the Manigault Newman affair. "But there is really no real commitment to diversity in the White House, and he's unapologetic about it because he's completely contradicted the commitment [to blacks] he made during the campaign with 'what do you have to lose?'", she added.
