Trump Loses NDA Case Against Former White House Aide Omarosa
In SummaryOmarosa: ‘Finally, the bully has met his match!’ The former aide detailed her time with the Donald Trump administration in a book in 2018.
Former U.S. President Donald J. Trump lost his lawsuit to implement a nondisclosure agreement against former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman.
Newman, the former star of ‘The Apprentice,’ which ended in 2017, shared damning details about her time in the Trump administration in her book, Unhinged.
The Trump Administration originally filed a lawsuit after her book was published, which claimed Newman infringed on a nondisclosure agreement she signed during the 2016 campaign. The NDA reportedly stipulated she would not reveal private or confidential information about Trump’s family, business or personal life.
In her book, Newman detailed how she was disgusted by the way Trump touched his daughter Ivanka on stage at the Republican National Convention on July 21, 2016.
From page 126: “Ivanka Trump walked out to the Beatles’ ‘Here Comes the Sun,’ and gave her MAGA-power speech. … The nominee walked onstage from the wings, went over to his daughter, … placed his hands low on her hips while appraising her, and then patted her on her hip. The placement of his hands made everyone uncomfortable. … It appeared to me that Ivanka had gotten so used to his touching her in ways that made others cringe and either didn’t notice it anymore or purposefully allowed it to happen—as I’ve said, Ivanka uses his obsession with her to her advantage.”
Trump cannot appeal the decision of the lawsuit.
“Donald has used this type of vexatious litigation to intimidate, harass and bully for years,” Newman said in a statement. “Finally, the bully has met his match!”
