Last week the Salon crew traveled up to Harlem for a conversation with entrepreneur and motivational speaker Kwame Jackson, the runner up on Season 1 of NBC’s “The Apprentice.” The 42-year-old businessman, who’s had a decade-plus relationship with Donald Trump, gave us some valuable insight into the Republican nominee, and why Jackson doesn’t want you to vote for him on Election Day.
“The person I knew in 2003-2004 isn’t the person I know now,” explained Jackson, “I call it a Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde devolution. Not an evolution but a devolution.”
