Former Donald Trump confidante Omarosa Manigault Newman was offered $15,000 a month from the president’s campaign to “stay silent” after being fired from the White House, The Washington Post reported Friday.
The offer was refused because of a nondisclosure agreement that would silence Manigualt Newman from commenting about Trump and his family.
The hush money offer was reportedly offered by Trump campaign advisor and daughter-in-law Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump.
“The NDA attached to the email was as harsh and restrictive as any I’d seen in all my years of television,” Manigault Newman writes in the book.
The former White House advisor, who first met Trump as a contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice,” is the author of the forthcoming tell-all, Unhinged: An Insider Account of the Trump White House.
Her book is the first insider account from a White House aide to be published. Manigualt Newman will be appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday as part of her publicity tour for the book.
The book is set for release on August 14.
