Donald Trump Wanted A Black Vs. White Season of The Apprentice

In order to boost ratings, Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump once suggested a “black vs. white” season. Yup, he wanted to separate teams based on race.

According to PEOPLE, Trump said in 2005: “To be honest, I wasn’t particularly happy with the most recent season. So this time around, I wanted to do the casting myself. An idea that is fairly controversial – creating a team of successful African-Americans versus a team of successful whites. Whether people like that idea or not, it is somewhat reflective of our very vicious world.”

He repeated this idea on the Howard Stern show, but ultimately admitted: “Not everyone thinks it’s a good idea.”
