Manigault Newman joined the Trump campaign in July 2016, and continued working for Trump in the White House until January 2018.

She has released several recordings this week, including one of Chief of Staff John Kelly firing her in the situation room, another with Trump appearing not to know about her firing, and a third which appears to feature Trump staffers discussing Trump's use of a racial slur.

Trump went after his former aide on Twitter on Tuesday morning, calling her a "crazed, crying, lowlife," and praising Kelly for "quickly firing that dog!"
