Trump asks Ivanka what she thinks. She says it's a challenging decision, because Annie played the game really well, very cool, and raised a lot of money. But Ivanka admires Joan's tenacity so much, and thinks she's incredible and a great role model. Don agrees that they're both good. He says Joan has stamina and energy like he's never seen, but as a business person, he respects that Annie lives and breathes games theory with no emotion. I'm not sure that's a selling point. Trump says that a lot of money has been raised, and $250,000 more will go to one of their charities with his decision. Because we haven't been told that 700 times already. He tells Annie she's been tough, smart, and about as ruthless as you can get. He congratulates her on everything and says it's been really amazing. He thinks Joan would be the first to admit it. She acknowledges she would like to take Annie to a sale at Gucci, because she'd just go through it. I'm not sure what that means, but whatever. Trump turns to Joan and says her strength and energy is amazing. He says she really is a role model, and he has to tell her that Annie... is fired. And the way he did that totally got Annie hopeful. He congratulates Joan, and tells her great job. Then he bids everyone good night and says he'll see them next season. "Money, money, money." Joan gives Melissa a big hug. And it's all over, folks. Until next season.
