Donald Trump

Sponsors NOT Bailing

Over African Hunting Pics

The father is NOT paying for the actions of his sons ... so says Donald Trump ... who claims all of his "Celebrity Apprentice" sponsors are staying committed to the show after gruesome pics emerged of his kids killing a bunch of animals in Africa.

TMZ broke the story ... Marcus Lemonis -- CEO of Camping World and Good Sam -- is furious about the photos of Don Jr. and Eric Trump posing with their kills ... which included an elephant, kudu and waterbuck. Lemonis told TMZ he vowed not to give another dime to support Trump's show.

Here's the catch ... Good Sam is a major sponsor of a 'Celeb Apprentice' episode scheduled to air next month.

But Trump called in to "TMZ Live" moments ago ... and said despite Lemonis' outrage ... not one sponsor has pulled out ... including Good Sam.

In fact, Trump says the people at Good Sam are THRILLED to be on board ... and told him they are "very much looking forward" to their episode.

Still, Trump once again stated he's NOT a fan of hunting ... but believes his sons were righteous in giving the meat from their kills to local villagers.

I highly doubt the villagers need or ate all that meat. An entire elephant? Right. That's probably what the Safari sponsors tell their hunting customers so that they won't feel bad about what they're doing: slaughtering captive animals.

Even if the hunt is legit, these two knuckle heads should know better. It's as if they were asking for trouble.

Mountain out of a mole hill. The guy hunt animals, gave food away and receives backlash? It doesn't make sense. I'm all about animal rights, but come on! There's more worry on this than human on human murder in Africs, insane!

What meat did they give? News to me that they now eat elephants in Africa! I heard one on those yayhoos say the people don't get much meat then said something about too many animals in that area. Which is it? Nah, just bored rich kids in a canned hunt.

They claim to be outdoorsmen. There's a new reality show. Trump Kids Survivor!!!! Let's see those outdoorsmen skills. Also, did anyone notice how pale one of them was. Pale with a scruffy beard doesn't make them a skilled outdoorsman. Wimps with too much time.
