Trump denies report that he discussed relaunching “The Apprentice”

    President Trump is denying a report that he has had discussions with Mark Burnett, the producer of his former show, “The Apprentice,” about returning to television.

    • “Fake News is reportingthat I am talking to Mark Burnett about doing a big show, perhaps The Apprentice, after the presidency, which I would assume they mean in 5 years. This is not true, never had such a conversation, don’t even have time to think about it. False reporting!”

    The Daily Beast reportedthat Trump and Burnett have spoken over the phone since the election in 2016, including conversations about post-presidency TV projects.

    • “One of the ideas kicked aroundby Burnett and the president was shooting a new version of the Trump-branded Apprentice, tentatively titled The Apprentice: White House, and to produce it shortly after the president leaves office.”
    • “This time, however,the TV program would be explicitly politics-themed and take full advantage of Trump’s status as a former president of the United States and a newfound Republican kingmaker.”

    Between the lines:Burnett has faced considerable pressure to release unaired footage from the show, as The Daily Beast notes.

    • As of this moment, none of that footage has seen the public eye.
