Trump Takes Legal Action Against Omarosa for Violating Non-Disclosure Agreement
President Donald J. Trump’s campaign organization has filed for arbitration against Omarosa Manigault-Newman, former campaign staffer and contestant on NBC’s “The Apprentice.”
“Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. has filed an arbitration against Omarosa Manigault-Newman, with the American Arbitration Association in New York City, for breach of her 2016 confidentiality agreement with the Trump Campaign,” said a campaign official in a statement.
The Trump campaign alleges that Omarosa broke the NDA by falsely claiming that he used the N-word during filming of “The Apprentice” in her recently-released book, and by secretly recording conversations with Trump in the White House Situation Room.
This claim has been proven false by known Trump critic Frank Luntz.
@Omarosa’s book on page 149. She claims to have heard from someone who heard from me that I heard Trump use the N-word. Not only is this flat-out false (I’ve never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn’t even make an effort to call or email me to verify. Very shoddy work,” Luntz said on Twitter.

“According to a sample of the agreement provided to Secrets, she was required to keep proprietary information about the president, his companies or his family confidential and to never ‘disparage’ the Trump family ‘during the term of your service and at all times thereafter,'” said The Washington Times.
“President Trump is well known for giving people opportunities to advance in their careers and lives over the decades, but wrong is wrong, and a direct violation of an agreement must be addressed and the violator must be held accountable,” the campaign said.
