The new tape, which aired exclusively on MSNBC alongside an appearance of Newman discussing its significance, includes the exchange she had with Lara Trump, wife of Trump's middle son Eric Trump, as she was offered a job with the Trump presidential reelection campaign directly after her termination from her government job.

"It sounds a little like, obviously, that there are some things you've got in the back pocket to pull out", Lara Trump said. "Should you pursue litigation against S&S, we are confident that documents related to the contents of the Book in the possession of President Trump, his family members, his businesses, the Trump Campaign, and his administration will prove particularly relevant to our defense".

He said Manigault Newman worked for President Trump for 15 years and was still saying positive things about him after leaving the White House.

Manigault-Newman interrupted her and said, "Oh, God no", to which Trump said, "Everything, everybody positive, right?"

In the tape, Lara Trump reportedly offered her $15,000 a month to stay silent.

But in a lengthy statement, Lara Trump described the airing of the tape as a "betrayal" - coming after Manigault Newman was "welcomed into our family as a trusted friend and confidant".

Manigault Newman, a former contest on Trump's NBC reality show "The Apprentice", said during Thursday's television interview that she is prepared to continue sparring with the president.

Newman shared the tape on MSNBC to host Craig Melvin, corroborating what she wrote in her tell-all book.

Likewise, Yrigoyen's declaration of love to Kufrin: "You don't give me butterflies, you give me eagles in my stomach". He has been the frontrunner on the show since the beginning, when he stepped out of a minivan to greet Kufrin.

Manigault-Newman is on the opposite end of the political and ideological spectrum from Clyburn, who said most Republicans were "enablers" of the president.

"I don't think - see, actually I don't think it would".

The roll out of Manigault Newman's book and some of her critical and unverified observations appear to have rattled the president.

"Thank you for the kind words Omarosa!". "So, I know you, you were making 179 at the White House".

How did Lara Trump respond to the release?

She said that the Trump family "had no idea about basis of her dismissal" when she was sacked from White House, and said "we still wanted her on our team because we cared so much about her personally".

"As a producer on seasons 1 & 2 of [The Apprentice], I assure you: when it comes to the Trump Tapes there are far worse", Pruitt tweeted in 2016 after the infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which Trump can be heard bragging about sexually assaulting women, was leaked. "We still wanted her on our team because we cared so much about her personally".

"I hope it's all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can't put a price on", Trump, a senior campaign adviser, said in a statement.
