Donald Trump said Tuesday that he is not interested in starting a television network if he loses the election, despite reports to the contrary and his campaign’s recent habit of hosting nightly live broadcasts on Facebook.
Trump told Cincinnati radio station WLW that although he has an “incredible” base of supporters, he has no interest in creating his own network, according to CNN Money.
“No, I have no interest in Trump TV,” Trump said. “I hear it all over the place. I have a tremendous fan base, we have a tremendous base. We have the most incredible people, but I just don’t have any interest in that. I have one interest, that’s on November 8th.”
Rumors of a Trump-masterminded TV network swirled following the GOP nominee’s continued attacks against “the media” for being biased against him. His campaign now is holding Facebook live broadcasts each night until the election, in which they say they’ll deliver unskewed news about Trump.
Many speculated that those live broadcasts were a trial run for an eventual network news channel, but Trump appeared to put those theories to bed, saying he’s focused on winning swing states.
“So, no, I have no interest in beyond that, I have interest in making America great again,” he told WLW.
