President Trump is reportedly considering bringing reality television show The Apprentice to the White House.
According to the Daily Beast, three sources with knowledge of the situation told them that Apprentice creator Mark Burnett and the president have been pitching each other details on potential TV projects to be filmed after the Trump presidency.
“There have been several discussions between Burnett and Trump about The Apprentice: White House," an insider told the outlet. "It is something Burnett thinks could be a money-spinner, and Trump is very keen on doing."
Another one of the knowledgeable sources said, "They actually talked about an Apprentice: White House," but conceded that "as far as I know, the discussion did not go far."
Trump has treated his presidency much like a reality television show, so is it shocking that he's working on this new idea? Not really.
A source also weighed in on Burnett's relationship with Trump: "Mark would say, 'My relationship with the president is incredibly strong. I'm the most powerful person in Hollywood because of it. I could wipe the floor because of it.' Mark has no shame."
