Trump says he has a lot of respect for David, but then asks Jose if he thinks David is tough enough to go against Hatch, who's a pretty tough guy. Jose says "Definitely," but Don says he wouldn't see that from his perspective, with the levels of energy. He says he's watching David get killed by Hatch right now, and he wonders if David can go the length of this game. David ho-hums, "Oh, I have no intention of quitting," as Hatch forcefully says, "I want to be here." He says he wants to manage again. Don says he can see that; he just can't see it from David. Trump asks Hatch about the breaks David took, and Hatch again says David took an awful lot of them. Trump asks if that's true, and David says no, then asks Jose if he did. Jose: "Nope." David: "Thank you." Ivanka asks David why he's deferring to Jose, when it comes to standing up for himself. David says Hatch is lying. Ivanka points out what he did, by answering then deferring. David says they were working side by side.
Trump asks David what he has to say, and he doesn't say anything, so Hatch jumps in, "Mr. Trump, he doesn't have anything to say." David slowly says, "That's the last time, in this room, you're going to lie and insult me." Hatch tells David he doesn't have enough to say to contribute to what they're here to do. Jose asks if he can sit beside Hatch. David tells Hatch to be quiet and not interrupt. Hatch says the floor is his. David says Hatch is an egomaniac, a complete control freak, and disrespectful. Trump says Hatch is disrespectful to David. David says Hatch is trying to save his ass, and he's jealous. David says he couldn't have done more for Hatch. Hatch says he wasn't working for him; he was working for charity. David says that, when he took breaks ... Trump jumps in to point out, astutely, that David and Jose said previously David didn't take breaks, and now he's saying he took two, or maybe four. Trump asks how many, and Hatch says, "quite a few, over a four-hour period." David shakes his head. Hatch says this is the boardroom and he's going to hear the facts here. David says they're not facts, and looks at Jose again, who shakes his head. Trump tells David he hates what he just did, looking at Jose, almost asking him for help. David says Jose called Hatch a liar. Trump says that every time David goes after Hatch, he's asking Jose to give him a hand. David says that Trump's heard from Jose and David that Hatch is not telling the truth. Trump says he's been in business a long time, and he tends to trust his instincts, which are almost always right. "Now, with that being said, I'm not a huge fan of Richard Hatch." WHO IS?! And he says he is a huge fan of David's. But, he says, it seems that Hatch and Jose have unbelievable spirit and the ability to fight. He says David doesn't have the same spirit right now. David says he's making a mistake, and Trump says he understands, and he respects David more than both of them, but "David, you're fired." David proves the point by saying, "I understand."
