Report: Trump Family Talked to Investors About Trump TV

Written by SK Ashby

GOP nominee Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has spoken to investors about creating a Trump TV network after the election is over according to the Financial Times.

Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, met with Aryeh Bourkoff, the founder and CEO of the investment bank LionTree, some time within the past couple of months, the Financial Times reported, citing three unnamed sources.

According to the Financial Times, the "conversation was brief and has not progressed since."

Trump himself has denied the rumors that he's planning to launch a TV network, but it's abundantly clear that you can't take Trump's word on anything.

I personally believe he will unless he ends up requesting asylum in Russia next year, which feels like an equally strong possibility.

Now that Trump is devoting so much time to saying the election has been "rigged" against him, I'm somewhat expecting he will use that as a hook to promote Trump TV, because only Trump TV will tell you the truth about the election, right?
