President Donald Trump lashed out at former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman after she revealed secret recordings made during her time working for the government.

Manigault claims that Trump used racist language, was mentally incompetent and generally unaware of activity in the White House -- and the president bashed his former cast mate on NBC's "The Apprentice" reality show.

"Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time," Trump tweeted. "She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart."

"I would rarely see her but heard ... really bad things," he added. "Nasty to people & would constantly miss meetings & work. When Gen. Kelly came on board he told me she was a loser & nothing but problems. I told him to try working it out, if possible, because she only said GREAT things about me - until she got fired!"
