Trump Son-In-Law Mulling Post-Election Launch Of Trump TV
Now, according to the Financial Times, Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has initiated preliminary discussions with LionTree, a boutique media investment bank, about the possibility of establishing a Trump television network after the presidential election.
Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has informally approached one of the media industry’s top dealmakers about the prospect of setting up a Trump television network after the presidential election in November.
Mr Kushner — an increasingly influential figure in the billionaire’s presidential campaign — contacted Aryeh Bourkoff, the founder and chief executive of LionTree, a boutique investment bank, within the past couple of months, according to three people with knowledge of the matter.
Their conversation was brief and has not progressed since, the people said. Mr Bourkoff and Mr Kushner both declined to comment.
