Did Donald Trump Just Use the Debate to Test-Launch Trump TV?
Did Trump TV just do a test-launch during the final presidential debate?
While people around the world focused on the third showdown between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, Trump’s official Facebook page aired live coverage.
“If you’re tired of biased, mainstream media reporting (otherwise known as Crooked Hillary’s super PAC), tune into my Facebook Live broadcast. Starts at 8:30 EST/5:30 PST — you won’t want to miss it. Enjoy!” Trump’s Facebook page proclaimed before the antics from Las Vegas, Nevada, kicked off.
Earlier this week, Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, contacted media power player Aryeh Bourkoff about the possibility of S etting up a Trump television network after the election, the Financial Times reported.
Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband, owns the New York Observer.
Kushner and Bourkoff “are thinking about how to capitalize on the populist movement that has sprung up around their campaign in the event of an election defeat to Democrat Hillary Clinton next month,” according to the Financial Times.
