Trump once considered ‘Blacks vs Whites’ on ‘The Apprentice’

By Defender News Service

President Donald Trump once said he could gain stellar television ratings by pitting black contestants against white ones for a season of his reality TV show, “The Apprentice.”

In a 2005 radio interview on “The Howard Stern Show,” Trump claimed “some person” had proposed the concept of “nine blacks against nine whites.” CNN aired resurfaced audio of the interview on Wednesday.

“And it would be nine blacks against nine whites, all highly educated, very smart, strong, beautiful people, right?” Trump told host Stern.

Stern asked whether “very dark blacks or light-skinned blacks” would appear. Trump said there would be an “assortment.” The whites, Trump continued, would probably all be blondes.
