Omarosa Claims Trump Offered Her $15,000 per Month to Stay Quiet in New Tell-All Book

Disgraced reality TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former White House aide and long-time friend of President Donald Trump, was offered $15,000 a month in hush money by the Trump campaign after being fired from her position last December, according to her new tell-all book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.180808-swin-tani-omarosa-trump-tease_cs5jso

In excerpts of the book obtained by The Washington Post, the former Apprentice star says she refused the offer. She writes that after Trump chief of staff John Kelly let her go last year, the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump called and offered her a high-paying campaign job as a diversity outreach adviser—but only on the condition that she sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA).

The agreement, wrote Manigault Newman, banned her from commenting publicly on the president or any member of his family and on Vice President Mike Pence or his family. “The NDA attached to the email was as harsh and restrictive as any I’d seen in all my years of television,” she writes in the book.
