Donald Trump Has "Apprentice" LaToya Jackson"s Vote
With rumors swirling that Donald Trump is just weeks away from announcing his presidential candidacy, he”s already locked in one very famous voter.
LaToya Jackson, who is also a contestant on the 11th season of Trump”s hit competition show, “Celebrity Apprentice,” has publicly endorsed the real estate tycoon.
“I truly believe that he would be a great running candidate if he did [run for president], and I would certainly vote for him,” Jackson said.
Trump may rule the boardroom every Sunday night at 9PM ET, but does he have what it takes to rule the nation Jackson thinks so. See why Donald Trump has secured LaToya Jackson”s vote after the jump!
“I think he would make an excellent president. I think he speaks the truth, I also feel that he knows a lot about the economy and the way [it"s] heading. [The] world in general is basically involved around business with the oil crisis and things of that nature, that”s basically controlling the world at this point and this moment. He knows so much about that,” said Jackson.
But the songstress knows her “Celebrity Apprentice” boss is bound to face opposition.
“I think he”s loved by a lot of people in America. I think he stands a chance, but then again, you have the other side who says, “Well how much does he really know”"
Trump”s unconfirmed presidential campaign only makes Jackson”s time on “Apprentice” that much more exciting. She joins all-star cast mates Gary Busey, Star Jones, Niki Taylor, Lisa Rinna, David Cassidy, Dionne Warwick, Richard Hatch, NeNe Leakes, Marlee Matlin, Jose Conseco, Meat Loaf, Mark McGrath, Hope Dworaczyk, Lil Jon and John Rich.
“John Rich is very clever,” said Jackson when asked what contestant proved to be her toughest competition. “He”s very focused. He”s a smart guy, but what”s important is to stay focused, and he stays focused. A lot of people have the tendency to lose focus and lose sight of what they”re doing. That”s the key really to be successful in a sense because you know when you go off into another direction or little tantrums on the side, that kind of ruins things, and he stays right with what he”s supposed to do! That”s something everybody should learn.”
Jackson is no stranger to the spotlight, but feels that her stint on “Apprentice” will finally reveal her true self to audiences. “People don”t really know the true me. They don”t know who I am,” said Jackson when asked what will surprise viewers the most. “I think just being out there, being amongst people with different personalities and standing up to them, not letting them run all over you and talk to you the way they choose to do,” said Jackson.
As for what to expect from Jackson this season, she”s anything but glib. “Let me just put it this way, it”s going to be a very interesting show. It”s exciting, I think it”s the best “Celebrity Apprentice” there is.” Jackson raves.
With Trump supposedly planning his race to the White House and Jackson stepping out from her brother Michael”s shadow, she couldn”t be more right.
