Former ‘Apprentice’ Producer Says Trump Used Racial Slur, Details Misogynistic Behavior

A former producer has come forward with allegations that Donald Trump used a racial slur during the filming of Season 1 of “The Apprentice.”

Bill Pruitt, who worked on the show, claims he was present when Trump used the offensive term, and he has decided to speak out now that his non-disclosure agreement has expired after 20 years.

Pruitt’s Account

According to Pruitt, the incident occurred during a boardroom discussion about the season’s final contestants, one of whom was black and the other white.

“Would America buy a n***** winning?” Trump allegedly asked during the conversation.

This statement is a key part of Pruitt’s recent article in Slate, where he expresses regret for his role in shaping Trump’s public image as a “natural-born leader.”

Trump’s Campaign Response

The Trump campaign has vehemently denied Pruitt’s claims. Spokesman Steven Chueng dismissed the allegations as “fabricated and bull****,” accusing Democrats of resurfacing old stories in a desperate attempt to influence the upcoming election.

“This is a completely fabricated and bull**** story that was already peddled in 2016. Nobody took it seriously then, and they won’t now, because it’s fake news,” Chueng stated.

Misogynistic Behavior and Financial Misconduct

Pruitt also alleges that Trump made misogynistic comments during filming, targeting both staff and contestants.

He describes an instance where Trump ordered a female camera operator off an elevator, deeming her “too heavy.” Another female camera operator was compared to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, with Trump allegedly commenting, “There’s a beautiful woman behind that camera. That’s all I want to look at.”

In addition to his alleged racist and misogynistic remarks, Pruitt recounts an architect’s claim that Trump failed to pay half of the fees for a golf clubhouse project. Trump reportedly boasted about a secret house on one of his golf courses, suggesting it could serve as a “personal lair for his sexual exploits.”

The Missing Tape

Rumors of a tape capturing Trump using racial slurs have circulated for years, though the tape has never surfaced.

Former “Apprentice” contestant and Trump White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has claimed to have heard the tape, but her account is based on secondhand information. In her book, she describes a phone conversation in which a source relayed Trump’s use of the N-word during production.

Pruitt’s Reflections

Pruitt reflects on his involvement with the show, expressing regret for not walking away when he heard the offensive remarks.

He recalls a moment when Trump questioned why contestant Kwame Jackson, who is black, did not fire a problematic teammate. Trump allegedly remarked, “I mean, would America buy a n***** winning?”

Pruitt also highlights the show’s editing practices, which often manipulated footage to create a narrative that suited the show’s dramatic needs.

He admits that the portrayal of Trump as a decisive and capable leader was a deliberate construct.

Impact on the Final Contestants

Despite the controversy, Pruitt acknowledges that both final contestants, Kwame Jackson and Bill Rancic, were deserving of their positions. He describes them as capable and confident individuals who would have succeeded regardless of the show’s editing.


As the 2024 presidential election approaches, these new allegations add another layer of complexity to Donald Trump’s already controversial public persona.

With former insiders like Bill Pruitt coming forward, the conversation about Trump’s past behavior continues to evolve.

The public remains divided, with supporters dismissing the allegations as politically motivated while critics see them as further evidence of Trump’s unfitness for office.
