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 to 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 laid 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 came out of herself. She says that Jackson handled the situation at the casino better than Rancic, especially with Omarosa. Jackson, she says, handled the situation with grace.

Biden apologised to Zelenski! Biden apologised to Zelenski!

“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 fair question. Given that this is 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.
