The Trump campaign has fought back on a multitude of claims made by former White House employee and campaign staffer, Omarosa Manigault-Newman on Monday.
NEW: Trump campaign official and separate highly placed Trumpworld source say (1) Omarosa came to THEM for work; (2) the “hush money” NDA was nearly identical to what she signed in 2016; and (3) they walked away when they found out why John Kelly fired her https://t.co/52Cza2xCiw

Omarosa alleged that the Trump campaign offered her a $15,000 a month job in an effort to force her to sign a non-disclosure agreement. However, the campaign said that the opposite is true – that she came to them seeking a job, according to the Daily Mail.
That NDA, is allegedly practically identical to the one Omarosa signed during her initial tenure with the campaign. The only reason they asked her to sign an updated one was because the original NDA did not include Vice President Pence or his family under the non-disparagement umbrella. Every campaign employee is forced to sign one.
Once the campaign found out why White House Chief of Staff John Kelly fired her, they supposedly were no longer interested in hiring her, a source in the campaign confirmed to the Daily Mail.
Manigault-Newman secretly recorded Kelly firing her — and according to the recording, Kelly said she was getting fired for “some pretty, in my opinion, significant integrity issues.” (RELATED: Omarosa Recorded John Kelly In The Situation Room)
