In New Tape, Lara Trump Offers Omarosa Manigault Newman “Hush Money”

HeadlineAug 17, 2018
H6 omarosa tapes

Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has released another secretly recorded audiotape, saying it backs up her claim she was offered hush money by the Trump campaign to buy her silence over Trump’s use of the N-word and other racist remarks. In the tape, recorded last December just days after Omarosa left the White House, Lara Trump, Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, is heard offering Omarosa $15,000 a month in exchange for a small role in the Trump campaign.

Lara Trump: “It sounds a little like, obviously, that there are some things you’ve got in the back pocket to pull out. Clearly, if you come on board the campaign, like, we can’t have—we’ve got to”—

Omarosa Manigault Newman: “Oh, god, no.”

Lara Trump: “—keep everything, everybody positive, right?”
