Trump considers black versus white Apprentice because he “wasn’t particularly happy” with last season

Having run completely out of ideas, Donald Trump says that everything’s on the table for the next season of The Apprentice, including splitting up the teams by race.

According to MSNBC’s Jeannette Walls, Trump is “considering some controversial changes bound to generate buzz for upcoming episodes” because he “wasn’t particularly happy” with The Apprentice 3.

Thus, Trump says he’s considering interracial teams (for a single challenge? The whole season?) He said, “Whether people like that idea or not, it is somewhat reflective of our very vicious world. But needless to say, not everybody thinks it’s a good idea.”

Walls says “a rep” (for NBC? Trump?) confirmed that “it’s just an idea that’s being considered.”
