There’s word that footage from NBC’s “The Apprentice” shows Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for President, using the n-word. This comes directly from one of the show’s producers Chris Nee who tweeted that she is pretty certain the footage exists.
Another producer, Bill Pruitt chimed in saying:

Now, as an impartial arbiter of news, do we know for sure that this footage is real or if Trump really does drop the n-bomb?
No, no we don’t. And mainly because “Apprentice” producer and Trump supporter Mark Burnett has placed huge cost for anyone who leaks it. According to Nee’s tweet (which has been deleted): “I don’t have the tapes. I’ve signed a Burnett contract & know leak fee is 5 mill. Hearing from producers/crew N word is the ‘much worse.'”
And while these producers have reached out to billionaire and Clinton supporter Mark Cuban, it came down to David Brock (founder of Media Matters) who looks like he’s ready to cut the check. Responding to an email asking if he would fund the $5 million fee, he answered “yes.”
TELL US: Do you think this footage really exists and will we ever see it?
