Donald Trump has been in talks with The Apprentice creator and executive producer Mark Burnett for reality shows with the president starring in once he leaves the White House, whenever that may be in the distant future.
Donald Trump has established himself as the leader of the free world and including all the power that comes with it, but on its own, the president still misses his former life as a reality TV show host of Apprentice.
They are talks about launching “The Apprentice: White House,” which would be an all-politics and will strongly rely on Trump’s role as President of the United States. To be specific, the two have reportedly discussed the idea of bringing the talk show “The Apprentice” to the White House.
One of the new innovative ideas around by Mark Burnett and the president was shooting a new version of Apprentice, titled “The Apprentice: White House,” and to produce it shortly after the president leaves the office. This time, however, the TV program would be wholly politics-themed and would take full advantage of Donald Trump’s status as a former president of the United States.
The relationship between Burnett and Trump has been an object of immense conjecture and surprises for many since Trump began his political rise.
They both grew so much close that Burnett’s son Cameron was the ring-bearer at Trump’s 2005 wedding to Melania. During the campaign, Mark Burnett faced intense pressure to release unaired footage of Apprentice after it became clear that scenes showed Trump in a highly unfavorable manner.
Mark Burnett and Donald Trump having decisions based on this are itself quite curious given that the president has declared that former President Barack Obama should be under investigation for making a deal with Netflix after he left the White House. Whereas Barack Obama was well within his rights to sign a production deal with the streaming service ‘Netflix’ since becoming a public citizen.
