*Bottom line: season four winner of The Apprentice, Randal Pinkett, will support President Obama over his former boss, “The Donald,” if he runs for president.

“I think he [Obama] hopefully will get reelected to a second term,” Pinkett told Chris Yandek of CYInterview.com. “If Trump chooses to run against him it will put me at odds with my former employer cause I do support President Obama.”

Pinkett, who become the first person from a minority group to win The Apprentice, adds that he believes Trump might be serious about a presidential run.

“I have been in communication with his office on other matters and they’ve responded to me he’s out taking visits to do with exploring fundraising and supporters … I think he is actually exploring the possibility and it’s beyond the realm of publicity that he’s seriously considering it.”

Pinkett, a graduate of Rutgers University also weighed in on Snooki get paid $32,000 from his alma mater  stating:

“Do I think it’s the best use of resources especially given the economic situation we’re facing? That’s a lot of money to spend on a speaker. I think my challenge with Snooki is really what she represents and what the show represents. I don’t think it’s necessarily the best example for our young people as it relates to achievement and focusing on those things that can really help them to move ahead.”
