Ex-Apprentice Winner: Trump Showed ‘Racial Insensitivity’ on the Show

Two of the former Apprentice contestants currently speaking out to denounce Donald Trump joined Alan Colmes on Fox News Radio yesterday to talk about their views on whether Turmp’s a racist.

Kwame Jackson came on first to tell Colmes that he doesn’t really consider Trump a racist and didn’t hear anything that awful on the show, but he did agree with Colmes that Trump is more a “racial opportunist” than an actual racist.

Colmes then also brought on Dr. Randal Pinkett, the only African-American to win a season of The Apprentice. Pinkett noted, “I was the only contestant that he ever asked to share the title with the runner-up and that was insulting.”

He said Trump had asked him if she should have hired the runner-up too, something he’d never done to anyone else, and he thinks “at best it was racial insensitivity, and at its worst it was racism.”

Watch the full interview above, via The Alan Colmes Show.
