A former White House staffer claims that President Donald Trump is a racist who used racial slurs in her new book.

The Guardian obtained a copy of an upcoming book by former assistant to the president Omarosa Manigault Newman. In the book, Newman claims that three sources told her that a mic caught Trump using the "n-word" multiple times, and that there are tapes to prove it.

The Guardian obtained a copy of "Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House" before its publication on Aug. 14.

Newman also claims in the book that she witnessed Trump use a racial epithet to describe White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's husband, who is Filipino.
