ExTrump aide Omarosa Newman pens Unhinged White House memoir

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former White House aide and reality television star Omarosa Manigault Newman will chronicle her time in U.S. President Donald Trump's administration in a memoir to be released Aug. 14, her publisher said Thursday.

Publisher Gallery Books said "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House" will recount Newman's role in Trump's political rise, from her campaign trail focus on reaching out to African-American voters to her role in White House communications.

A White House spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the book on Thursday.

Newman, who once worked in U.S. President Bill Clinton's administration, initially rose to fame as a contestant on Trump's reality TV show "The Apprentice" in 2004. She worked on his 2016 presidential campaign, during which she said Trump's detractors would eventually have to "bow down" to him.

Newman left the White House in December and returned to reality television two months later, appearing on the CBS television show "Big Brother," where she drew widespread media attention for condemning Trump and his administration.

"I was haunted by tweets every single day. Like what is he going to tweet next?" Newman said at the time. "It's bad ... It's going to not be OK."

The White House initially said Newman had resigned but after the "Big Brother" appearance said she had been fired. It also said Newman had little contact with Trump after he took office.

Newman's Trump White House memoir follows others affiliated with the administration including "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership," by James Comey, who was fired as FBI director by Trump, and spokesman Sean Spicer's recently released "The Briefing: Politics, The Press and the President."

Gallery Books is an imprint of Simon & Schuster, which is part of the CBS Corp.

France, Germany to agree to NATO role against Islamic State - sources | Reuters

By Robin Emmott and John Irish | BRUSSELS/PARIS BRUSSELS/PARIS France and Germany will agree to a U.S. plan for NATO to take a bigger role in the fight against Islamic militants at a meeting with President Donald Trump on Thursday, but insist the move is purely symbolic, four senior European diplomats said.The decision to allow the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to join the coalition against Islamic State in Syria and Iraq follows weeks of pressure on the two allies, who are wary of NATO confronting Russia in Syria and of alienating Arab countries who see NATO as pushing a pro-Western agenda."NATO as an institution will join the coalition," said one senior diplomat involved in the discussions.

China's Xi says navy should become world class | Reuters

BEIJING Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday called for greater efforts to make the country's navy a world class one, strong in operations on, below and above the surface, as it steps up its ability to project power far from its shores.China's navy has taken an increasingly prominent role in recent months, with a rising star admiral taking command, its first aircraft carrier sailing around self-ruled Taiwan and a new aircraft carrier launched last month.With President Donald Trump promising a US shipbuilding spree and unnerving Beijing with his unpredictable approach on hot button issues including Taiwan and the South and East China Seas, China is pushing to narrow the gap with the U.S. Navy.Inspecting navy headquarters, Xi said the navy should "aim for the top ranks in the world", the Defence Ministry said in a statement about his visit."Building a strong and modern navy is an important mark of a top ranking global military," the ministry paraphrased Xi as saying.
