Trump is already contemplating a return to reality TV

Donald Trump might be the 45th president of the United States but apparently he might still yearn to return to his natural home of reality television.

A source toldThe Daily Beastthat Trump is still in touch with the creator of The Apprentice, Mark Burnett.

It would appear that the president is reportedly keen on doing a version of The Apprentice that is set in the White House, that is focused on politics and clearly taking full advantage of Trump's current role.

There have been several discussions between Burnett and Trump about The Apprentice: White House, It is something Burnett thinks could be a money-spinner and Trump is very keen on doing.

However, another source seemed to contradict this saying, "they actually talked about an Apprentice: White House" but added "as far as I know, the discussion did not go far."

It’s hard to sort the news from the fake news, however, and a spokesperson for Burnett told The Daily Beast:

The quoted statements attributed to Mr. Burnett are absolutely false.

Among other things, the president and Mr. Burnett have not discussed making television shows in any shape or form.

Sam Nunberg, a former political adviser to Trump, said:

The day that NBC announced that Donald Trump would no longer be able to host The Apprentice in 2015 was one of the very few times I’ve ever seen the [then-future] president visibly upset in immediate reaction to news.

Mixed signals so there’s no way of saying for certain but it certainly seems plausible that Trump might return to the world of the small screen.
