After receiving a voicemail from the president-elect’s team threatening to sue him, actor Tom Arnold has vowed to release a tape of Donald Trump using the N-word and referring to one of his sons as a “retard.”
According to Daily Mail, Arnold described remarks reportedly made by the billionaire in an Apprentice outtakes reel last week, saying the president-elect refers to one of his kids as a ‘retard.’
The actor said he would have released it before the election but did not have the approval of producers who made it and gave it to him. But Arnold changed his tune on Wednesday receiving a phone call from Trump’s team threatening legal action over his remarks.
Arnold took to Twitter to pledge war against Trump. “Wife told me there’s house line VM from Trump Camp about defamation suit so it’s on! Open Apprentice vaults 4 discovery! Miss Universe too!!” he said.
The 57-year-old made an appearance on Kiro Radio, a Seattle radio station, on Friday, during which he described the tapes in detail.
“I have the outtakes to The Apprentice where he says every bad thing ever, every offensive, racist thing ever,” he said.
“It was him sitting in that chair saying the N-word, saying the C-word, calling his son a retard, just being so mean to his own children,’ Arnold said.”
Trump’s team would not comment on Arnold’s claims. But, as expected, Trump insiders are denying the actor’s claim.
