Donald Trump racial-slur allegations resurface in new book 'The Method to the Madness'

It’s the allegation that won’t die. And now a new book is adding more context — and more logs to the fire.

In “The Method to the Madness: Donald Trump's Ascent as Told by Those Who Were Hired, Fired, Inspired — and Inaugurated,” out Tuesday, authors and journalists Allen Salkin and Aaron Short resurrect the allegation that President Trump openly used a racial slur on the set of his long-running reality TV show “The Apprentice."

In the book, the story of Trump’s ascendancy to the White House is told as an oral history through direct quotes from named sources speaking on the record. One chapter immediately jumps out: It’s titled “The N-Word.”
