Trump re-hires Randal to run Youth Apprentice Program, be Trump Institute spokesperson

Apprentice 4 winner Randal Pinkett is done working on Trump’s Atlantic City casino, but Donald Trump has rehired him. In a press release, Trump said, “Randal Pinkett has been an asset to the Trump Organization. We will continue to work on a variety of projects in the coming year.”

Those projects do not involve Randal helping Trump write smart-ass letters to Rosie O’Donnell, although he could certainly use Randal’s help and intellect. Instead, Randal “will continue his working relationship with Mr. Trump leading the Youth Apprentice Program in Philadelphia, Pa., and will also serve as spokesperson for the Trump Institute.”

The Youth Apprentice Program is “dedicated to helping Philadelphia area high school students earn a six-week apprenticeship with Trump Entertainment Resorts in Atlantic City,” and starts in February, according to the press release.

Randall is also pitching his forthcoming book, Campus CEO: The Student Entrepreneur’s Guide to Launching a Multi-Million-Dollar Business, which will be published Feb. 1. To do that, Kaplan, the book’s publisher, is offering high school seniors and college entrepreneurs $22,000 to launch their business. As the official rules say, however, the winner only gets $5,000 to help fund their business. The bulk of that is the “one-on-one Campus CEO coaching session with Randal Pinkett valued at $15,000.” Yes, Randall has indeed learned from Trump’s apprenticeship.
