Shots Fired: Omarosa Releases Tape of Lara Trump, Who Shuts Her Down with Scathing Statement

'I am absolutely shocked and saddened by her betrayal and violation on a deeply personal level,' said the president's daughter-in-law

She just can’t seem to — or won’t — go away.

Controversial ex-White House employee and reality TV star Omarosa Managault Newman once again made headlines Thursday — this time by spilling yet another secretly recorded tape, as The Daily Wire and other outlets are reporting.

This recording was of Lara Trump, Eric Trump’s wife, talking with Managault Newman about the possibility of joining the Trump re-election campaign with a salary of $15,000 per month.

In the recording, Lara Trump can be heard saying, “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 … we can’t have…”

Manigault Newman interjects quickly, “Oh, God no.”

And Lara Trump continues, “Everything, positive, right?”

In a statement, Lara Trump has made quick work of the media-hungry former celebrity:

From the beginning of my father-in-law’s campaign, Omarosa was welcomed into our family as a trusted friend and confidant. On the Women for Trump tour, including Omarosa, we formed a sisterhood bond that is unlike any I have experienced in my life.

We toured together, laughed together, and worked really hard toward a common goal. We never would have imagined that one of our own was secretly recording all of our private conversations.

When Omarosa was fired by the White House chief of staff in December of 2017, my entire family was concerned for her because we had no idea about the basis of her dismissal. We still wanted her on our team because we cared so much about her personally.

“That’s why I reached out to offer her a position with the 2020 Trump Campaign before we knew anything about the gross violations of ethics and integrity during her White House tenure,” Lara Trump continued. “Another one of Omarosa’s ‘bombshell’ tapes is a fraud. The discussions about a position with the campaign took place in numerous phone calls over the course of several weeks.”

She then leveled a personal charge at Manigault Newman: “Woman to woman, I shared a connection with Omarosa as a friend and a campaign sister, and I am absolutely shocked and saddened by her betrayal and violation on a deeply personal level. I hope it’s all worth it for you, Omarosa, because some things you just can’t put a price on.”
