CLAIMS TRUMP SAID ‘N*GGER’…

Former President Donald Trump is alleged to have used the N-word during deliberations of who should win the first season of The Apprentice, and according to a former producer whose NDA just expired, there are tapes of him saying the racial epithet.

There have long been rumors that Trump said the N-word during the taping of The Apprentice, and calls for former EP and reality television pioneer Mark Burnett to release the footage.

Bill Pruitt is an Emmy-nominated producer of the once-wildly popular competitive reality TV show, and his NDA of 20 years just expired. So he went long for Slate to detail what he saw of Trump from his position behind the scenes.

Pruitt details one discussion about who should win the season as it came down to the two final contestants. One was Bill Rancic — who eventually won and earned a job at the Trump Organization. The other was Kwame Jackson, a Black man. During that discussion, Pruit claims Trump said, “but, I mean, would America buy a n— winning?”

Pruitt writes:

We lay out the virtues and deficiencies of each finalist to Trump in a fair and balanced way, but sensing the moment at hand, Kepcher sort of comes out of herself. She expresses how she observed Jackson at the casino overcoming more obstacles than Rancic, particularly with the way he managed the troublesome Omarosa. Jackson, Kepcher maintains, handled the calamity with grace.

“I think Kwame would be a great addition to the organization,” Kepcher says to Trump, who winces while his head bobs around in reaction to what he is hearing and clearly resisting.

“Why didn’t he just fire her?” Trump asks, referring to Omarosa. It’s a reasonable question. Given that this the first time we’ve ever been in this situation, none of this is something we expected.

“That’s not his job,” Bienstock says to Trump. “That’s yours.” Trump’s head continues to bob.

“I don’t think he knew he had the ability to do that,” Kepcher says. Trump winces again.

“Yeah,” he says to no one in particular, “but, I mean, would America buy a n— winning?”

Kepcher’s pale skin goes bright red. I turn my gaze toward Trump. He continues to wince. He is serious, and he is adamant about not hiring Jackson.

Trump has long denied that he ever said the N-word and even addressed these rumors on Twitter in 2018, claiming that Burnett told him there are no tapes of him using the word:

Trump is currently on trial for alleged election interference for fraudulently misleading American voters by hiding hush money payments to Stormy Daniels, and the deliberating jury might very well decide his fate on that issue in the next day or two.
