    US President Donald Trump has called a former White House aide "wacky" and a "lowlife" after she accused him of racism.

    Omarosa Manigault Newman was fired in December and secretly recorded conversations she had while working in the White House.

    She has also written a book about her time there.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports from Washington, DC.
