Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has revealed staff working for Donald Trump used the hashtag ‘TFA’ in messages to one another when the President did something ‘insane’.
Manigault Newman, formerly one of Trump’s most vocal black supporters, said the hashtag was used in reference to the 25th amendment by members of her family, ‘staffers’ and people working in federal agencies.
The 25th amendment allows removal of a president who is deemed incapacitated by any kind of illness – including mental illness.
‘You know, we had a little hashtag, #TFA. Now that I think about it I’m a little embarrassed to tell you how often, when I went through my text chains from the White House, I saw the hashtag TFA. Twenty-fifth amendment,’ Manigault Newman told MSNBC.
‘Whenever he did something that was just so insane, and so crazy, and unhinged, when he would flip positions from one hour to the next, we’d just hashtag it TFA and we’d keep moving.’
But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders hit back at the claims on Sunday, calling the allegations ‘ridiculous’.
‘Everyone, even the media, knows she has no credibility,’ Sanders said.
‘The idea this ever happened is completely ridiculous and just further shows the she will say and do anything to try and be relevant.
‘It’s embarrassing for the press to keep giving her a platform.’
Manigault Newman, a former Apprentice star, published a tell-all book about her time in the White House last month in which she claimed the President was mentally ‘in decline’.
The accusations within the book provoked a furious reaction from Trump, who branded her ‘vicious, but not smart’ after its release.
