Donald Trump wants to help imprisoned Richard Hatch, could pay his debt
Richard Hatch is back in prison and Donald Trump has volunteered to help the Celebrity Apprentice and Survivor contestant.
“It sounds like a very tough predicament. I may ask him if there’s anything I can do … I may get involved and ask him what the hell is going on,” Trump told People.
This seems like it could be a spoiler—Trump’s own self-interest in having a finale with a non-imprisoned cast member—but Trump said, “If he makes it to the finals — and I’m not saying he is — I’m sure we can get him time off for good behavior.”
Trump added that Hatch “wasn’t loved on set because it’s a competition but I will say he was respected,” so paying anything Hatch still owes to the IRS is “something I’d think about. He’s been a great character on the show.”
