Former Trump Aide Omarosa's Book Claims ‘Stunning Tell-All and Takedown'

Manigault Newman tweeted #ComeClean45

Former President Donald Trump aide and "Apprentice" contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman has a memoir coming that her publisher calls "explosive" and "jaw-dropping."

The book is called "Unhinged." Gallery Books announced Thursday that it will be released on Aug. 14.

On Friday, Manigault Newman tweeted "#ComeClean45" and shared a link to a book listing on Amazon promoting pre-order sales. 

The publisher's accompanying blurb said that after a 15-year relationship with Trump that spanned television shows, the 2016 campaign and the president's first year in the White House, Manigault Newman "is finally ready to share her side of the story in this explosive, jaw-dropping account."

The tome promised a "stunning tell-all and takedown from a strong, intelligent woman who took every name and number," according to the blurb.

Manigault Newman was a Trump ally who joined his administration in January 2017 as a White House communications director.

She had vowed that political foes would "bow down" to Trump. But she left after a year and spoke harshly of her experience, while denying reports she was fired. She said she was worried about the country and would never vote for Trump again.

The rare black woman in Trump's administration, she has likened her departure to being freed from a "plantation."
