She later said she heard the tape herself.
The White House and Trump have pounced on the discrepancy and her reputation as someone who seeks the spotlight in a bid to discredit her. Hogan Gidley, deputy press secretary, said media outlets never took her seriously until she released the tapes. Did she purposefully wear a Hillary Clinton-esque white pantsuit to Trump's first State of the Union address?
NBC's Today program played the brief recording, in which a voice presumed to be Mr Trump's claims to have had no knowledge that she was sacked and expresses regret at the news. People I think, get a sense of "scandal fatigue" with Trump. "Is this a joke?"
Omarosa married Newman - her second husband - at Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., where she walked down the aisle in a lace pink dress, all while she was employed at the White House. "And the bottom line is, I can tell you for a fact she was complicit, but she also did the bidding, and she wanted to prove that she was in their camp because she used to be a Democrat".
"I don't have that word in my vocabulary and never have", the tweet continued.
"Just having him call me out of my name, call me a lowlife, say that I'm not intelligent, this is what he does when it comes to African-Americans", she said.
The source claimed: "Melania is exhausted of being quiet and hiding inside the White House".
But neither Sanders nor other White House officials provided an explanation for why Trump hired Manigault Newman in the first place to manage communications for the Office of Public Liaison.
President Trump tweeted Monday night that Mark Burnett, the producer of The Apprentice, "called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a bad and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa".
Ms Manigault-Newman rose to fame as a contestant on reality TV show "The Apprentice" in 2004. "It rolled off his mouth. you'd never imagine he'd talk that way".
Ms Manigault-Newman writes in her tell-all book: "Taken as a whole, all of her style rebellions have served the same objective".
"She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok".
Manigault Newman is married to Jacksonville Pastor John Newman.
Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told a morning television show Monday Manigault Newman may have broken the law.
Omarosa Manigault Newman, the ousted Trump Administration aide and former reality TV star, said Monday that despite his repeated criticism of Chicago's efforts to fight violence, the president has "done nothing" to help combat the problem.
Donald Trump fired Omarosa Manigault Newman from "The Apprentice" three times, but it's her fourth dismissal that's turning into a White House scandal.

However, Pruitt denied he was in possession of the tapes, HuffPost reported.
Back then, she wouldn't go as far as questioning Trump's character when it came to his attitude toward different races. In the past, this included former President Barack Obama and his top aides watching in real-time the hunting down of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. She recorded the conversation when she was sacked and subsequently released that audio recording.
When Guthrie brought up the topic of mental health, Omarosa dismissed her with a wave of the hand, saying, "You know we have an interview after this ... but I will answer the last question - and you see that the time running out", she said, pointing in front of her, ostensibly at a clock or timer.
In addition, Manigault Newman may have broken a nondisclosure agreement that everyone in the West Wing must sign, Kellyanne Conway said on August 12.
The Situation Room is used by the president and his advisers to manage the nation's most important and secret foreign policy decisions and military actions. "For weeks leading up to the "I don't care" jacket moment, Melania has felt frustrated, angry, and exhausted of being complicit to her husband's actions".
