Mark Burnett brought Donald Trump into mainstream culture by hiring don the con for The Apprentice which later morphed into The Celebrity Apprentice. It was during their successful television venture that it became more important to craft and fine tune Trump’s image into a successful business man showcasing a false image to primarily American audiences. The dominant white male boss/father figure who can chose whether one stays or goes/fired or hired became an instant hit.
