Twitter reacts with fury after Donald Trump calls Omarosa Manigault Newman “a dog” in racist attack: “He’s hanging a whites only sign on the GOP.”
Trump tweeted: “When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!”

Trump raged after Omarosa released another tape that seems to back up her claims that he used the n-word in the past.The tape that aired on CBS News this morning was made during a phone call during the presidential campaign with campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson, Lynne Patton and Jason Miller talking about Trump’s alleged use of the n-word. Pierson is heard on the tape saying: “He’s said it. He’s embarrassed.”

The president of the United States just referred to the former highest-ranking (and only) African American woman in his administration as a "crazed, crying lowlife" and "that dog!" He's hanging a "Whites Only" sign on the GOP.

This kind of language is unbecoming of a President of the United States. There is no excuse for it, and Republicans should not be okay with it. https://t.co/0TLmRT7y22

President calls fired top aide a “dog.” Watching @OMAROSA v. @realDonaldTrump would be fun, like a @WWE show, were it not such a sad sign of collapse. What form of govt did we create, the lady asked Franklin in Philly. “A republic, madam, if you can keep it.” Have we given up?

When someone calls a former confidant a "liar," maybe that's true. When he calls a former campaign manager a "nobody," your doubts grow. By the third, fourth, fifth time–when we're on to "lowlife" and "dog"–you have to be fucking stupid not to realize who has the real problem.

Let's make it clear: Trump uses white supremacist language on purpose. pic.twitter.com/ZfSpybJ9tl

Low IQ. Dog. Lowlife. Nasty.
Real quotes from @realDonaldTrump about women.
And these attacks will fuel women — women like me — when we bring you to justice. https://t.co/1TqPYgub5j

Journalists should stand up for DECENCY. Decency is nonpartisan. And this is another example of indecent behavior by the president. pic.twitter.com/0SzOpZjgju

An absolutely disgusting comment. Follows a trend of debasing, dehumanizing remarks by this President towards women and minorities who frighten him. https://t.co/dYBPddbwTv

Trump just referred to one of the most prominent women of color to work in his Administration as a “dog.”
It’s disgusting that the President of the United States behaves like a cheap authoritarian; his first move is always to dehumanize and bully even those closest to him. https://t.co/pOcHBIt5NG

Fear my friend @realDonaldTrump undermines himself by using intemperate, boorish language to describe his enemies. I can't stand @OMAROSA a bully, back stabber & big mouth. But to call her a 'dog' & 'low life' is beneath dignity of the office of @POTUS & open to ugly connotation.

Trump just called a black woman a dog and about 80% of the GOP don’t think he’s racist. The whole party needs to be defeated in November. Vote today in primaries if you have them. Vote in November like our country depends on it. It does.

#Omarosa is NOT playing with y'all…..
Regardless of how you feel about her : She is not stupid. These first #OmarosaTapes are just for book sales. But she's recorded enough other conversations to inoculate herself from certain kinds of retribution. https://t.co/4I7t1PEhBR
