Donald Trump’s announcement to President Obama has ignited all kinds of reaction. It seems that the famous businessman is annoyed by a few celebrities who once appeared on his show hit NBC reality shows, “Celebrity Apprentice” and “The Apprentice.” According to Friday, Saturday, and Sunday tweets by Trump, he fired back at a few who oppose his pledge to Obama by donating $5 million in exchange for him providing college and passport records.
Star Jones, who appeared on “Celebrity Apprentice” in 2011, tweeted how funny it was Obama “laughs off feud with Donald Trump on ‘The Tonight Show.'” She’s not in support of the offer her former boss on the reality show put on the table for Obama.
Trump wrote this in his latest tweets Sunday about Jones:
“I defended @StarJonesEsq against @NeNeLeakes on The Apprentice when @NeNeLeakes was making a fool out of her — but my loyalty was not rewarded. I should have let @NeNeLeakes finish the job.”
Just prior to that he tweeted:
“I defended @StarJonesEsq when she lied about her stomach operation to lose weight — only to get blindsided by her on the @todayshow.”
The original post going after Jones was on Friday:
“Before Star Jones begged me to put her on The Apprentice she was “professionally dead.” I saved her tiny career — now she knocks my offer on the TODAY Show!”

She wasn’t the only one Trump went after on Twitter over the weekend.
Donny Deutsch used to host the CNBC talk show, “The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch,” from 2004 to 2008. When Trump got wind that he wasn’t supporting the announcement he made, he tweeted his displeasure.
Trump tweeted Saturday:
“I put @DonnyDeutsch on Apprentice at his request, I did his failed cable show as a favor to him then he knocks me for my Obama announcement.”
Notice that Trump is offended by the very people whose careers he believes he rescued because they disagree with his offer to the President of the United States. He throws some harsh words at them, but Trump is known for his cut to the chase style. Just because he helped them at one point doesn’t mean they’re obligated to show loyalty towards his political views. Trump’s announcement last Wednesday was one of the boldest moves anyone in the county could ever take against the nation’s leader.
If Donald Trump ever did someone a favor in the past, he expects their full support on anything he does in the future.
