Project Manager Richard chose to bring Jose and David into the boardroom with him for their part in Backbone's loss. Trump did briefly take Richard to task for his leadership, but after hearing him fight with David and Jose for too long over whether or not he got physical with the former during the task, Trump questionably decided that Richard's argument won out, and that David did not have enough spirit for the competition, and thus did he fire David.
