Rumors have been floating around about a “Trump TV” enterprise by the Republican nominee. These rumors have been accompanied by all sorts of accusations about who will work there, and if whether or not some people in the media have been doing what they do in order to get a spot on the network.
RedState’s Ben Howe even cooked up a superb video spoofing the idea.
But Trump recently was on Cincinnati’s 700WLW, and squashed the rumors by saying he really doesn’t have any interest in that.
“No, I have no interest in Trump TV,” Trump said during the interview. “I hear it all over the place. I have a tremendous fan base, we have a tremendous base. We have the most incredible people, but I just don’t have any interest in that.”
Listen for yourself here.
Of course, he added that he has no interest in it, and that his primary interest lays on November 8th. What happens after November 8th is anybody’s guess. Trump is projected to lose, but if he’s the businessman he says he is, he’ll likely try to capitalize on his popularity.
Especially in the wake of a Hillary Clinton presidency, Trump will probably try to set up a network that confirms his follower’s biases, at least for as long as possible.
Still, this is all speculation. Furthermore, this is Trump talking, and what he plans to do changes from one moment to the next.
