Could there be more tapes of President-elect Donald Trump coming soon? Actor Tom Arnold claims that he has a tape of Trump using racial slurs on The Apprentice.
During an interview with Dori Monson of KIRO radio on Dec. 16, Arnold said that he has the tape where Trump says every racist and offensive thing ever. He said that the tape was put together by employees of The Apprentice as a funny video Christmas card that was sent to a lot of recipients, according to CBS News.
“I have the outtakes to ‘The Apprentice’ where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever,” Arnold said. “It was him sitting in that chair saying the N-word, saying the C-word, calling his son a retard, just being so mean to his own children.”
Arnold said he won’t release the tape out of respect for the Apprentice employees who gave the tape to him. However, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and new Apprentice host Arnold Schwarzenegger asked Arnold to release the tape just before the election, according to US Weekly.
“The Sunday before the election, I get a call from [Schwarzenegger’s] CAA agent, sitting next to [Clinton]. They said, ‘I need you to release him saying the n-word.’ I said, ‘Well, now these people — two editors and an associate producer — are scared to death. They’re scared of his people, they’re scared of they’ll never work again, there’s a $5 million confidentiality agreement,” Arnold said.
Trump hosted The Apprentice for 14 seasons and also hosted The Celebrity Apprentice. NBC cut ties with Trump in 2015 after the president-elect made racist comments about Mexicans and Muslims. Schwarzenegger will begin hosting The Celebrity Apprentice in January.
