“Lowlife, she’s a lowlife.”
His campaign saying Tuesday it has filed an arbitration case against fired advisor — saying she violated a confidentiality agreement she signed in 2016.
The legal action coming after Trump lashed out against Manigault Newman on Twitter– calling her a ‘dog’ and a “crazed, crying lowlife” — upset that she secretly recorded conversations at the White House.
WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY, SARAH SANDERS,
“This has absolutely nothing to do with race and everything to do with the President calling out someone’s lack of integrity.”
Manigault Newman has been playing some of those tapes on live television as part of a publicity tour to promote her book – also questioning Trump’s mental fitness saying he used derogatory language about African Americans and other minorities.
A former contestant on Trump’s “Apprentice” reality show, Manigault Newman, was fired from the White House in December.
According to the Washington Post, dozens of White House aides have signed confidentiality agreements — which are common in the business world but legally questionable for government employees who conduct public business.
