Former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman’s soon-to-be-released book claims that after she was fired from the White House, she refused a new job and $15,000 a month for signing a nondisclosure agreement offered to her by the Trump campaign.

After White House Chief of Staff John Kelly fired her in December 2017, Manigault-Newman “received a call from Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law,” she wrote in her book, according to The Washington Post Friday.

Lara Trump allegedly proposed that Manigault-Newman take a new “diversity outreach” job with the Trump campaign in exchange for signing a nondisclosure agreement.

“The NDA attached to the email was as harsh and restrictive as any I’d seen in all my years of television,” Manigault-Newman wrote in her book “Unhinged: An Insider Account of Trump’s White House,” according to WaPo.

The agreement allegedly prohibited Manigault-Newman from making “any comments about President Trump or his family; Vice President Pence or his family; or any comments that could damage the president,” reported WaPo.
