Trump Is in Talks With 'Apprentice' Producer About Post-White House Reality Show, and People Came With the Titles
The 2020 presidential election is 361 days away as of Thursday, November 7, and Americans across the country are hoping for Donald Trump to be a one term President.
Trump is already looking to extend the most profitable business venture of his life after he can no longer command the Secret Service, White House advisers and aides, the Washington press corps, the US military and foreign governments to spend time and at his properties.
According to The Daily Beast, Trump is in talks with his old partner and secret keeper, Mark Burnett for a post-presidency reality show.

The British TV producer and current Chairman of MGM Worldwide Television Group produces a slate of reality TV fodder, including working with Donald Trump on The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice.

Loyalty is paramount to the President and the man has a long lasting love for NDAs. According to White House aides, the two men speak from time to time still.
