Donald Trump joined Fox and Friends Monday morning to discuss the controversy surrounding the racially insensitive statements attributed to Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. Trump said that he believes Sterling will be "expelled from the [NBA]" and called the comments on the audio recording "despicable."

A number of NBA personalities, including Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Magic Johnson, have shared their thoughts on Sterling — but Trump also gave his opinion on the woman who can be heard in the conversation.

"He got set up by a very, very bad girlfriend, let's face it. She's called 'the girlfriend from hell.' What he said was terrible and despicable and a very strong action is going to be taken."

Trump was then asked if Sterling could fight the allegations as he was having a private conversation.

"I don't know what you do, it's so bad. She was baiting him and she's a terrible human being and he gave horrible answers and disgusting answers."
