Florida Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, one of the Trump White House’s political sparring partners, says a new recording of the president released by former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman shows he is “unfit” for the Oval Office.
Newman released her latest recording, made while she was still on Trump’s West Wing staff, Monday on ABC’s “The View.” On the recording, Trump can be heard cracking a joke about how becoming a terrorist is the “only thing” someone in Niger can do to earn a living. He is also heard dropping a quip about a U.S. military operation that left four U.S. and four Nigerian soldiers dead.
