A new report reveals Donald Trump has long had an interest in dividing people by race for his own profit and amusement. In 2005, he reportedly toyed with arranging The Apprentice into a team of white contestants versus one of people whose birth certificates he’d probably like to see.

Trump recently suggested that cities like Ferguson and Oakland are more dangerous than Iraq, demonstrating that he’s still happy to arbitrarily divide people by race if a camera is running.

Meanwhile, Season 3 Apprentice contestant Tara Dowdell called Trump’s 2005 idea “Apprentice: The Race War,” while critics called the idea “a bit too much like the 2016 election.”
