Before he made a run for president, Donald Trump headlined NBC’s business reality show “The Apprentice.” Now, six former contestants have come forward with their objects to the legendary businessman, just days before the New York state primary.
“The Apprentice” alumni Randal Pinkett, Kwame Jackson, Tara Dowdell, Marshawn Evans Daniels, Keving Allen and James Sun all teamed up in hopes of “firing” Trump from the campaign trail.
“We stand united as former candidates on ‘The Apprenctice,’ not to denounce Donald Trump the man, but to denounce Donald Trump, the presidential candidate’s message,” Pinkett, season four winner, said in a statement.
The group went on to explain that Trump plays to “the lowest common denominator of fear, racism and divisiveness in our populace.”
“Trump does not have the temperament to deal with the sensitivities and diplomacy required on the world stage with volatile regimes in Iran, North Korea, and the threat of ISIS,” Jackson added. “You don’t get in a fist for fist boxing match in 2016 with global politics.
Trump was quick to respond to the comments of the former reality contestants.
“How quickly they forget,f” he said in a statement. “They just want to get back into the limelight like they had when they were with Trump. Total dishonest and disloyalty. They should be careful or I’ll play hours of footage of them individually praising me.”
