NEW YORK (AP) – Donald Trump says he has no interest in a “Trump TV” media venture if he loses the election.
It’s an idea that has persisted this week, after his Facebook page began featuring an alternative to network nightly news programs called “Live From Trump Tower.” It’s a joint effort by the campaign and a company that has been streaming Trump’s rallies online.
The program directly competed yesterday with the national network newscasts and their increasingly gloomy assessments of the Republican’s chances of winning the upcoming election. It’s expected to air eight more times before the election.
But when asked about “Trump TV,” the candidate told a Cincinnati radio station (WLW) that he doesn’t have “any interest in that.” He says his only interest is winning on November 8th.
