U.S. President Donald Trump calls Omarosa, a former black aide, “a dog”


US President Donald Trump on Tuesday called his former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, the only African-American to have served in a senior role in the White House, a “dog.”

“When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!” Trump tweeted.

Newman has made damaging allegations against President Trump in a new book to be released this week. She said Trump has repeatedly used the N word to refer to black people. She said he is a racist.

Why it matters: CNN wrote that “referring to an African-American woman as an animal is at best a sharp departure from the language typically employed by Presidents and at worst a reference that traffics in sexual and racial imagery. Trump has long denied being racist and has dismissed a claim made by Manigault Newman that he used a racial slur on the set of “The Apprentice.” He’s also invoked “dog” to insult non-African-Americans — including Mitt Romney and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon”.
