More details are leaking about the upcoming tell-all from Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former Apprentice contestant who later worked in the White House. The Washington Post is reporting Omarosa says she was offered $15,000 a month from the Trump campaign to keep quiet after she was terminated.
- “After she was fired, Manigault Newman wrote, she received a call from Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law, offering her a job and the monthly contract in exchange for her silence.
- “The proposed nondisclosure agreement allegedly said Manigault Newman could not make any comments about President Trump or his family; Vice President Pence or his family; or any comments that could damage the president. It said she would do “diversity outreach,” among other things, for the campaign, according to her account.”
According to The New York Times, Omarosa says Donald Trump frequently used the “n” word on the set of Celebrity Apprentice although she offers no proof, she says tapes exist.
- “It had finally sunk in that the person I’d thought I’d known so well for so long was actually a racist,” she said in the memoir. “Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole.’’
