Attempting to provide further evidence of his "great relationship with the blacks," Donald Trump informed "Fox & Friends" this morning that he is "the least racist person there is." (In fact, it's the second time he's used the phrase.) His proof? An African-American won "The Apprentice" once.

Trump's full quote:

"You know, if it comes to racism and racist, I am the least racist person there is. And I think most people who know me would tell you that. I am the least racist; I’ve had great relationships. In fact, Randal Pinkett won, as you know, on 'The Apprentice' a little while ago, a couple of years ago. And Randal’s been outstanding in every way. So, I mean, I am the least racist person."
