In the brief recording the voice Manigault Newman identified as Trump’s appears to be surprised and upset about news of her departure. “Omarosa, what’s going on? I just saw in the news you’re thinking about leaving. What happened?” the voice asks Manigault Newman. “General Kelly – General Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave,” Manigault Newman answers in the exchange. President Trump lashed out against Manigault Newman over Twitter after the release of the audio, calling her “wacky” and “vicious,” though also acknowledging he had initially resisted Kelly’s previous attempts to oust her from the West Wing.
