Donald Trump Says Former ‘Apprentice’ Contestants ‘Wanted Free Publicity’ by Denouncing Him
Earlier today, presidential hopeful Donald Trump, who is dominating polls in his hometown state over rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich, spoke out about diversity, just a day before he heads to the polls for Primary Day.
Trump chatted with “Extra's” AJ Calloway about some his former “The Apprentice” contestants, who held a press conference to express their displeasure with the Republican candidate. He shared, “Why would I have chosen them in the first place, nobody ever asked that question, they were chosen, whether it was Randall or anybody else, they were chosen.”
Randall Pinkett said at a press conference on Friday, "He's dangerous to the country and the world.” Of Pinkett's comments, Trump responded, "I think it's a few people who just wanted to get some publicity, but you saw all of the others that came out totally in favor, but these were just some people that wanted free publicity.”
As for his diversity coalition on Primary Eve, Trump noted, “We really want to bring everybody together and it's been beautiful to watch.”
