Omarosa releases recording of apparent job offer from Lara Trump

Omarosa-Trump feud continues Manafort defense doesn't call any witnesses and primary voters cast ballots in four states On Politics Today

The tapes indicated that Lara Trump offered Manigult Newman a salary of $180,000 to help with the campaign and that she would be expected to keep things positive and not reveal anything about the president.

Manigault-Newman, a star of Trump's former reality TV show "The Apprentice" and a White House adviser until her firing late a year ago, now is on a publicity tour for her new book, a tell-all account of the Trump administration.

Lara Trump said in the phone conversation that "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, like, we can't have".

Omarosa Manigault Newman has made a lot of striking allegations during the press tour for her new book, Unhinged, but this one comes as no great surprise.

"Everything, everybody, positive, right?"

The job wouldn't require her to report to any particular office or have a specific set of duties, other than to speak positively on Mr Trump's behalf as part of his re-election campaign.

But in a lengthy statement, Lara Trump described the airing of the tape as a "betrayal" - coming after Manigault Newman was "welcomed into our family as a trusted friend and confidant". Manigault-Newman is friendly with Clyburn's daughter, former Federal Communications Commission head Mignon Clyburn.

Giving up her career in fashion, Ivanka joined Donald Trump's administration, becoming senior advisor to the president of the United States.

Per one of Ms. Manigault Newman's earlier tapes, Mr. Trump appeared to not know she was being fired.

Both she and Trump have denied the claims made in the book by Omarosa, who was sacked after a year in the White House's communications department in January.

On Thursday afternoon, the president retweeted a video sent out by the Republican National Committee featuring clips of Manigault Newman lavishing praise on Trump in various venues.

"Trump has surrounded himself with grifters and con-artists, and now that it's coming back to haunt him he's trying to grift his way out of it", Meyers said.

"Thank you for the kind words Omarosa!"

"Oh, God no", Ms. Manigault Newman interjected. Specifically, let me see, I haven't even added up the numbers. "We still wanted her on our team because we cared so much about her personally".

Now Lara trump is player...

Manigault-Newman was sacked by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly in December.

Omarosa told MSNBC's Craig Melvin "Every time the Trump people challenge me, I bring the receipts..."

Lara Trump added, "I hope it's all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can't put a price on".
