Donald Trump is likely to lose this election, and while he may deny in public, it seems preparations are already being made for the aftermath. It has been rumored long ago that Donald wants to capitalize on his political popularity by creating a new TV network. Now it seems that rumors have been true.
The son-in-law of the Republican presidential nominee, Jared Kushner, reportedly contacted the investment bank LionTree, regarding a possible TV venture if Donald will be defeated in November.
Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, is already in the media business. He is the owner of the New York Observer. In addition to Kushner, Donald has surrounded himself with media specialists who could help organize such a launch, including disgraced former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes and Steve Bannon, who decided to leave the conservative nationalist news site Breitbart in August to advice Donald’s straggling campaign.
Earlier in September, Trump denied that he was interested in starting a new TV network, saying “I want to win the presidency… I have no interest in a media company. False rumor.”
