Six former cast members of the reality show "The Apprentice" held a press conference on Friday and spoke out against GOP front-runner Donald Trump, according to CNN.

One of the cast members, season one runner-up Kwane Johnson, said the real estate mogul appeals "to the lowest common denominator of fear, racism, and divisiveness in our populace" and he's "stoking the flames of our worst demons."

Randal Pickett, winner of season four acknowledged Trump's successes as a businessman and "genuinely appreciates the opportunity the 'Apprentice' afforded all of us. We, however, strongly condemn Donald's campaign of sexism, xenophobia, racism, violence, and hate."

Season three contestant Tara Dowdwell, added: "What makes America great is a unified commitment to inclusion," reports USA Today.

Other contestants at the press conference were Kevin Allen, Marshawn Evans Daniels, and James Sun.

Trump was the host of the NBC reality competition and its spinoff "Celebrity Apprentice" from 2004 to 2015. On the original show, Trump put contestants through season-long challenges, and hired one to work for one of his companies at the end of the season.

Celebrities on "Celebrity Apprentice" competed for charity.

"Celebrity Apprentice" winner and TV host Piers Morgan remains supportive of Trump, tweeting:


The billionaire did wasn't too impressed by the criticism from his former contestants. In a statement to CNN, Trump called them the "six falling wannabes out of hundreds of contestants."
