Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman writes in her new book that President Donald Trump wanted to be sworn in on his own book, The Art of the Deal, instead of the Bible.

She worked on his 2016 presidential campaign, during which she said Trump's detractors would eventually have to "bow down" to him.

"Hearing it changed everything for me", she told NPR reporter Rachel Martin. According to a published report by the media organization, when asked to clear up the discrepancy, the former White House aide said Martin must not have read the book.

When Manigault Newman questioned him about bucking the inauguration tradition, Trump allegedly responded with "Yeah".

Elsewhere in her book, she claims the president suffers from "mental decline" and alleges she once saw Trump chew up a piece of paper after a meeting with his then-lawyer Michael Cohen. "Yeah. The Art of the Deal is a bestseller!"

Omarosa Manigault has a book coming out and she's wasting no time to promote it. Not only is this flat-out false (I've never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn't even make an effort to call or email me to verify.

After his election she joined his administration as communications director for the Office of Public Liaison before leaving in January.

"During production he was miked, and there is definitely an audio track". While she doesn't provide direct evidence, she cites three unnamed sources who attest to the existence of the tape.

The book also claims that Mr Trump behaves "like a dog off the leash" at events he attends without his wife, Melania.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: 'This book is riddled with lies and false accusations.
