In the United States of America, President Donald Trump is facing another backlash for allegedly using the N-word on a former contestant of the Apprentice Show that the president used to host.
This revelation of Donald Trump using the N-Word came out after a former White House staffer and apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman in her book about her time in the White House and working on the Trump presidential campaign.
The person Omarosa is accusing Donald Trump of using the N-word on is an American businessman of Ghanaian descent, Kwame Jackson.
At the time Trump allegedly addressed Kwame Jackson with the N-word on the Apprentice show, Jackson was a contestant on the show with Omarosa.
Kwame Jackson is now a successful businessman and we can’t any less proud of him.
The following is written about him on his website.
Kwame Jackson is polished, confident and credentialed with prestigious wall street experience and business lessons he learned in front of 22 million people each week, on NBC’s hit show “the apprentice.” as a new york city based entrepreneur, professional speaker and media personality, he is poised for global aspirations.
Kwame holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration from the University of North Carolina at chapel hill Kenan-Flagler business school and a master of business administration degree from Harvard Business School. Although he was flattered to make both people magazine’s 50 most beautiful people and its 50 hottest bachelors list in 2004, Kwame is a businessman first!
His professional experience includes co-founding several internet start-ups during his time at Harvard, sales and marketing roles at Procter & Gamble, and most recently, on wall street as an investment manager for Goldman Sachs. It was his no-nonsense attitude and ability to be a team leader that made him stand out on “the apprentice” and it is his affable nature and street smarts that make him stand out in life.
As a professional speaker, he regularly addresses universities, aspiring entrepreneurs and executive management teams at the world’s leading companies on various topics such as leadership, team building, surviving while thriving in corporate America and the importance of being an entrepreneur.
Kwame’s diverse efforts have been recognized with acclaim and accolades that include keys to the city from Detroit, Indianapolis, Trenton, and Columbia; a national entrepreneur award from the united states department of commerce small business administration and minority business development agency; and the declaration of “Kwame Jackson day” by the mayor of Charlotte, NC – Kwame’s hometown.
Kwame often likes to say, “he got his start just like you!” from selling candy on his grade school bus to mowing lawns to buy his first Nintendo video game system, Kwame has always found ways to link profits with his passion. At the core, that is all being an entrepreneur really is? Through the years and along with his HBS classmates, Kwame has been involved in launching a college vertical portal as a pre-cursor to facebook in 1999, well before “social networking” was even a term, as a real-estate and economic development financing, government relations, community affairs, and marketing lead, and most recently as the CEO & founder of Krimson by Kwame, his own luxury lifestyle brand of executive neckwear distributed in 150 US markets with national retail partners Macy’s, Dillard’s, and JcPenney’s department stores. Business opportunities don’t always come in neatly wrapped boxes, sometimes they are dressed in overalls and look like work.
