According to Yahoo, President Donald Trump called Holly Robinson Peete the N-word two years ago.
“It was a very interesting experience.”
“It was a trip and kind of messy and stuff. I found him to be kind of piggish and bullish and stuff, but I didn’t find him to be just this… who he is now.”
“I did not see that. So, I think the combination of power and corruption and all that stuff just made him go to that next level.
“Shortly after the finale, rumors started going around that he had tossed out an N-word in referring to me.”
“And I was like, ‘Huh?’ And then when the producer told me when it happened during the finale. I remember the moment.”
“I wasn’t in earshot, but I could see them deciding between me and Bret Michaels.”
“There was a moment where [Trump] was talking with producers and they’re really animated and that was when I heard that he said, ‘They want the N-word to win.’ Because I guess the network wanted me to win or me to be chosen, and Trump wanted Bret. And the quote was, ‘They want the N-word to win.’”
From Yahoo Entertainment:
Peete star was a guest on SiriusXM Urban View’s The Karen Hunter Show where she recalled her “unique” experience working with the current president on Celebrity Apprentice. The 21 Jump Street star, who competed against Bret Michaels in the 2010 finale, said she spent about a month with Trump.
Overall, the Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper star said Trump was “kind of lovely” — to her face.

There have long been rumors that tapes exist of Trump saying the N-word during his 14-season run as host of The Apprentice. But there’s no proof any actually exist. He has denied making racist remarks and most recently declared himself the “least racist person.” That doesn’t track to Peete, though.
