“I was complicit with this White House deceiving this nation,” Newman said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“They continue to deceive this nation with how mentally declined he is, how difficult it is for him to process complex information, how he is not engaged in some of the most important decisions that impacts our country,” she continued. “I was complicit and for that I regret.”

Newman, who rose to fame on “The Apprentice,” was fired last year from the White House, but has returned to the spotlight after penning a memoir that recounts her time in the White House.
The book alleges Trump is a racist, misogynist and narcissist.
Trump blasted his longtime aide as a “lowlife” after book excerpts began to leak, and the White House slammed her as a “disgruntled former White House employee” who is “trying to profit off of these false attacks.”
Newman has previously praised Trump, famously saying that the president’s critics would have to “bow down” after his election. Upon her departure, she gave an interview saying she would not work for someone she believed to be racist.
