Bill Rancic, the winner of the first season of Donald Trump's reality television show "The Apprentice," offered some insights about the President-elect and praised his media savvy.
"He lifted me up. He gave me an opportunity that was absolutely spectacular and I think he's going to do the same for all of America," Rancic said on the sidelines of the Future Opportunities conference on entrepreneurship in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.
Rancic, who went on from the reality show to work for the Trump Organization, told CNBC's "Capital Connection" that Trump was an "incredible negotiator, he's probably one of the best negotiators on the planet."
Asked what was the best advice the property mogul, who will become the U.S. president in January, ever gave him, Rancic said, "I would tell you that one thing he values is hard work ... He's a hard worker. You saw him on that campaign trail. He was doing six, seven, eight, 10 stops a day. And I think he expects the same from the people that work with him and that he's going to surround himself with.
"That's something that I think everyone should cherish and value ... Certainly instilling a good work ethic is something that my wife and I believe in and we're going to do the same for our son," the entrepreneur added.
