Former producers of Donald Trump’s The Apprentice claim there’s un-aired footage of the presidential hopeful using the n-word.
On Saturday, Bill Pruitt, a former producer on the show, tweeted that there was “far worse” footage that never made it to air.
“As a producer on seasons 1 & 2 of #theapprentice I assure you: when it comes to the #trumptapes there are far worse. #justthebegininng.”

Chris Nee, a television executive, followed up Pruitt’s tweet adding that there were rumors that the “far worse” was Trump’s use of the n-word. Nee tweeted, then deleted, “I don’t have the tapes. I’ve signed a Burnett contract & know leak fee is 5 mill. Hearing from producers/crew N word is the ‘much worse.'”
Mark Burnett, Trump supporter and creator of The Apprentice, has kept the tapes tightly under wraps, making those who worked on the show sign contracts that threaten a $5 million fee if they ever leak information. However, David Brock, the founder of American Bridge and a leading Clinton ally, suggested that he may be willing to pay the fee for anyone who leaked the tapes. He told BuzzFeed, “If a $5 million ‘leak fee’ is what stands between truth and total Trump implosion, sign me up.”
Looks like there’s still a possibility that those tapes could leak and we could see Trump’s campaign unravel even more.
