Omarosa Manigault Newman is almost a month into her book tour but she's not out of ammunition against President Trump, nor is she letting arbitration with President Trump silence her. 

The former White House Staffer who released a tell-all book, "Unhinged" last month, appeared on "The View" Monday and continued to discuss her "toxic relationship" with her Apprentice mentor and White House boss, President Trump.

"View" co-host Sunny Hostin asked Omarosa about a specific incident she claims happened in her book. She writes that when she organized a delegation to Haiti for the February 2017 inauguration of President  Jovenel Moïse, Trump dismissed the Caribbean nation in crude terms, which he would reportedly repeat almost exactly a year later to widespread criticism.

Former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault Newman to @TheView: "I was in a toxic relationship with Donald Trump and I regret that I was so complicit. You know, Hillary Clinton was robbed, and I was ... a co-conspirator in that robbery" https://t.co/iyOFUSMPnvpic.twitter.com/ueWbgbi7tR

“When I told (President Trump) that I would be gone for a couple of days, he asked me, ‘Why did you choose that shitty  country as your first foreign trip? You should have waited until the confirmations were done and gone to Scotland and played golf at (his course) Turnberry.’ “

"He couldn't understand why I was so passionate about helping the people of Haiti," Omarosa told her "View" hosts. "I had to remind him about his campaign commitments that he made to the Haitian community. I had to remind him that we have an obligation as the wealthiest country in the world, to take care of the poorest country in the world. And he was like, 'Well I think you should go and wait till K. T. McFarland is confirmed and go to a better country.' "

And without using the expletive itself, Omarosa confirmed that he had said it.

If that sounds familiar, that's because Trump was accused of (and denied) having referred to Haiti as a "shithole country" along with El Salvador and several African countries while meeting with Congressional leaders this January on immigration policy. He denied the charge.

She also told the co-hosts of "The View," that she regrets the role she played in getting Trump elected.

"You know, Hillary Clinton was robbed, and I was ...  a co-conspirator in that robbery," she said. "And, I will regret that for the rest of my life that I was a co-conspirator along with the rest of these folks on this campaign who helped this con man get into office."

She also played audio of the president she says is from Trump crashing an October 2017 communications team meeting to talk about what he viewed as collusion between the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russia. He discusses whether her team misappropriated $9 million in campaign funds to pay for the now-infamous Steele dossier, which suggested areas where Trump might be susceptible to coercion by the Russians.

"Nobody knows who spent it," Trump is heard saying. "It was spent through a law firm. That way they can't trace it. But they traced it. One thing in this business is, they trace it. And yeah, close to $9 million. I can't even believe it. The reason a law firm is this way, you don't have to give any papers. But they got out, it's definitely illegal and it's illegal for a campaign standpoint, from a campaign financing standpoint. So the whole Russia thing, I think, has turned around."

Trump has been accused of doing something similar. Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer and fixer, has said he fronted the money for a $130,000 hush payment to alleged Trump paramour Stormy Daniels a month before the 2016 election. (Trump maintains that he did not violate campaign finance law because he repaid Cohen out of his personal, rather than campaign, funds.)

Cohen also arranged to reimburse David Pecker, the publisher of The National Enquirer, for the rights to a story about an affair with Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal. (In August, Pecker and another executive from American Media Inc., have been granted immunity in exchange for his testimony on Trump and Cohen, along with Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization.)

The timing of those payments is important because Trump did not list a debt to Cohen on his 2017 personal public financial disclosure report, which he filed on June 14, 2017. (He did include the payments to Cohen for the Daniels deal in his 2018 report.)

Omarosa was also asked where she kept the microphone she used to record all of her conversations but demurred because of her legal battle with Trump.

"Right now, I'm going through arbitration with Donald Trump," she said. "He has sicced his entire legal team on me to stop any further release of tapes, and he wants to make sure that I am silent... They want to shut me down."

When asked if she thought Trump would retreat on the issue of arbitration, Omarosa said he wouldn't – at least not until he bled her financially.

"He wants to break me," she said. "He wants me to spend all my money on legal fees and legal bills," predicting "more than likely once we request all the emails from the campaign that I was engaged in, they'll withdraw."

Omarosa added: "I'm gonna keep on fighting." 

"They want to shut me down."
