According to the Financial Times, the "conversation was brief and has not progressed since."
Throughout Trump's presidential campaign, speculation and reports about Trump's interest in using his presidential bid to launch a television network have percolated. Vanity Fair reported in June that Trump asked Kushner and Ivanka Trump to look into launching a media organization.
Trump in September denied that he is looking into starting his own network along with former Fox News executive Roger Ailes, who has become involved in Trump's campaign.
"No, never did,” he told the Washington Post when asked about rumors that he is considering launching a media venture with Ailes. “I want to win the presidency, and I want to make America great again. It’s very simple. I have no interest in a media company. False rumor.”
