Trump's claim is who should get fired between Holly, Cindy and Brett. By asking Holly who should get fired and she answers Cindy, he wants to know why. He arguing that she had the best room of the project. He is also saying that he likes her spirit and seems that she wants to win and wants to do good. During his argument he is also trying to get information from his colleges and from the contestants to help him in determining his decision by getting all the facts of others to help him in arguing who should get fired, he almost seems to be trying to lead the other contestants another direction by stating flaws in the others as well.

Because of the opinions that were brought up by Brett saying that he couldn't do any more work then what he did, and that he says he tried his hardest from this its vague because you cannot know how much he actually did or could have done more. Cindy was on the defensive and she was using foul language and ambiguity because it seemed like she was using some uncertainty in her argument. Cindy does not defend herself well.
