Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman released a secretly recorded tape on MSNBC of President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump offering her $15,000 to stay “positive.”
Lara, who is married to Eric Trump, acknowledged Manigault-Newman had information in her “back pocket,” and then offered Manigault-Newman $180,000 to join the 2020 Trump campaign, which was $1,000 more than Manigault-Newman was making at the White House when she got fired:
It sounds a little like there’s something you’ve got in the back pocket to pull out… Everything, everybody, positive, right? …Um, so I know you were making 179 at the White House. And I think we can work something out where we keep you along those lines… We were talking about 15K a month, um, let me see what that adds up to, times 12, yeah, so that’s $180.000.
Manigault-Newman told MSNBC:
I saw this as an attempt to buy my silence, to censor me, to pay me off… This family can’t keep their story straight.
