Marc Lotter, a surrogate for President Donald Trump and former spokesperson for Vice President Mike Pence, insisted on Monday that he had never heard Trump lie or use the N-word.

In an interview on MSNBC, Lotter disputed reports from Omarosa Manigault that Trump used the racial epithet during filming for NBC's The Apprentice.

"Absolutely not," Lotter said of the N-word. "Nothing close to it. I've traveled with the president, the vice president, for almost two years now, when I was on the campaign, in the White House. I never heard him say anything like that."

"Have you ever heard him use any type of racial slur, say anything derogatory toward people of color or minorities?" MSNBC's Kristen Welker asked.

"No," Lotter insisted. "The president speaks bluntly and plainly, but he doesn't speak in those kinds of terms, that I have ever heard him say. These are consistently out of character."

Welker also noted that Manigault had called Trump a "liar."

"Is that true? Does the president lie?" the MSNBC host asked Lotter.

"Not to my knowledge," Lotter insisted.

"We do spend a fair amount of time fact-checking him," Welker said. "Isn't that an indication that he is not precise, and sometimes he's not necessarily telling the truth?"

Lotter responded: "These are allegations also made by someone who is now -- came out in December and said she resigned, only to find out now she was fired. She actually celebrated the president, said he was not a racist shortly after she left the White House."

A Washington Post report found that Trump made over 4,000 false or misleading claims in the first 558 days of his presidency.
