On the recording, campaign aide Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, can be heard discussing salary considerations and other aspects of a campaign job with Manigault Newman and makes clear that she expects her to be positive about the president.
Though it's unclear which law the president believes Manigault Newman broke, a former West Wing official told Sherman that Trump's reaction is likely rooted in what he sees as "a personal betrayal".
"It sounds a little like, obviously, that there are some things you've got in the back pocket to pull out", Lara Trump is heard telling Manigault Newman.
In another excerpt, Lara Trump says, "So the only thing that we have to consider, where we're talking salary, as far as the campaign is concerned is that, as you know, everything is public".
Magazine website InStyle has reported that in a new book the former-reality TV star Omarosa Manigault has claimed: "Melania is counting every minute until [Trump] is out of office and she can divorce him".
Manigault-Newman interrupted her and said, "Oh, God no", to which Trump said, "Everything, everybody positive, right?"
Madison pointed out that Manigault Newman is a woman, at which point she said the president had put the moves on her. Manigault-Newman is friendly with Clyburn's daughter, former Federal Communications Commission head Mignon Clyburn.
"She is doing everything ideal if her ultimate goal is to troll Trump", another former White House official said.

Union minister Alphons Kannamthanam said he discussed the flood situation in Kerala with Home Minister Rajnath Singh this morning. Rino of Manaykkaparambil house, Panickankudy was killed in a landslip which occurred near the premises of his house on Friday.
Omarosa has known President Trump long enough to know that he discards allies the minute they become inconvenient, which explains why she started recording conversations with campaign officials during election season. "I know you were making 179 at the White House, and I think we can work something out where we keep you right along those lines", Trump continued.
Manigault Newman made the revelation Wednesday evening during an interview with Sirius XM host Joe Madison. Manigault-Newman also attended two historically black colleges, and Clyburn's support for those institutions is a major part of his legislative portfolio.
"I don't know of anything that has been more troubling to me that this president has done than refer to a professional woman as a dog", Clyburn told The State newspaper. Um, let me see what that adds up to.
Lara Trump said she "formed a sisterhood bond that is unlike any I have experienced in my life" with Manigault Newman.
Reporting on Simon and Schuster's response on Thursday as well as the surrounding controversy over Omarosa's book, CNN's Kaitlan Collins was asked by Jim Acosta if Trump had responded to the controversy centered around Omarosa's comments.
"When Omarosa was sacked by the White House chief of staff, my entire family was concerned for her because we had no idea about the basis of her dismissal", Mrs. Trump said, "We still wanted her on our team because we cared about her so much".
"Yes, I'm included in that number of women who Donald Trump has said inappropriate things, has looked at inappropriately", she said.
