Republicans, who heard criticism about actor-director Clint Eastwood's lecture to an empty chair at their recent convention, produced an "Apprentice"-style video that they never showed to delegates.

Appearing on NBC's "Today" show Tuesday, Trump confirms the video take-off on his TV show was produced at the party's request and was to air on the first night of the convention last month in Tampa, Fla. The party had to cancel that day's program because of the looming threat from Hurricane Isaac, and the meeting lasted only Tuesday through Thursday.

In the video, Trump talks back to televised clips of Obama, including one where the president said the "private sector is doing fine." The millionaire real estate magnate talks to back to the tape, exclaiming, "You're fired!"
