Former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman predicted on Tuesday that “a lot more” women will come forward as she and other women who worked as Trump campaign staffers sue President Donald Trump for pay discrimination.
Omarosa filed to join a lawsuit on Monday alleging that the 2016 Trump campaign had paid its female staffers 20% less than their male counterparts who were doing the same job.
During an appearance on MSNBC on Tuesday, the former reality TV star said she had been getting paid $7,000 a month while her male colleague was getting paid $11,000 to $12,000.
She also pointed at the lack of diversity within the Trump administration and the President’s moves to roll back equal pay initiatives.
“So, it’s pretty clear where the President and his administration stand on pay equality for women,” Omarosa said. “Time is up. Enough is enough.”
“I expect a lot of women will come forward once they see across the board how they were treated by this campaign,” she said later.
The lawsuit is headed by Alva Johnson, who is also suing Trump for allegedly forcibly kissing her at a rally in 2016.
