While talking with Ramin Setoodeh, author of Apprentice in Wonderland: How Donald Trump and Mark Burnett Took America Through the Looking Glass, Trump acknowledged his knowledge of the affair.

The author told ITK, “Trump feels that a huge part of his legacy is ‘The Apprentice,’ and he’s really proud of what he created.”

“When he hosted a reality show, he was broadly loved, very popular, and he’ll recall that period of time in his life with great fondness.”

More in the interview, the author's statement goes like this: “When I ask Trump about O’Day’s affair with Don Jr., he takes a long pause. 'I had heard that, actually,' he says, blinking. 'No, I had heard that.' Did he know that O’Day had written a song about Don Jr.? ‘I hadn’t heard the song. But I had heard that,’ Trump says."

The author pointed out the fact that the former President was “aware of the story about Don Jr. sleeping with one of the contestants on The Celebrity Apprentice.”

While discussing the former POTUS, Steoodeh said, “What I really took away from my time with Donald Trump is that as a person, as a subject, he hasn’t changed. The presidency hasn’t changed him. He still views the world through the lens of reality TV.”

“He is the same Donald Trump that he’s always been. He hasn’t learned from the presidency. He hasn’t grown from the presidency. He’s not even particularly interested in being president of the United States, in terms of when it comes to legislative duties or responsibilities.”

Trump “just wants to be famous” the author claimed.

Trump was pissed with Trump Jr. and Aubrey O'Day's affair

On a podcast episode of ‘Mea Culpa,’ featuring Aubrey O'Day , Michael Cohen, former “fixer” of Donald Trump, recalled, “Your father is really fu***** pissed.”

“This is way beyond even what I am supposed to be doing. I sat down with Don, and I said, 'I understand the attraction [to O'Day], " Cohen expressed.

The former Trump attorney then said "t’s got to stop and you have to figure out how to make this right with [wife] Vanessa."

"You know I am a fan of Vanessa’s, you’ve got to make it right with her because if you don’t, your father is going to throw you’re a** out of here. And I said, ‘Don, I don’t know what the f**k you’re capable of doing,’ to which Don went crazy.”

Trump's former “fixer” also recalled the heated moment where Don Jr. expressed frustration about being held to a different standard compared to his siblings. "Only me! It’s always me!"

“He goes, ‘I am always held to a different standard. Eric had s** with some Miss Universe that was on Celebrity Apprentice on the table and Ivanka has her own issues regarding sexuality and so on…"

Ok reported it earlier that Trump was notably displeased upon learning about his son's extramarital involvement with O'Day, especially given that Don Jr. was still married to Vanessa Trump at the time.

The affair with ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ reportedly caused a significant strain within the Trump family.
