Conway: Trump may continue ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ position
Donald Trump’s campaign manager confirmed that Mr. Trump could retain an executive producer title on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” after he takes office in January.
“He’s a very transparent guy. Everyone can see what he’s doing, and the fact is that he is conferring with all types of experts to tell him what he is allowed to do and not to do as the president of the United States,” Kellyanne Conway said on CNN’s “New Day.”
“If the lawyers and the protocol officers say that he can do that, then he probably is going to say, ‘Why not?’” she said, comparing the show to a leisure-time interest for a president.
Variety reported Thursday that Mr. Trump is retaining his executive producer credit on “Celebrity Apprentice.” That spin-off, coupled with the original “Apprentice” series, helped cement Mr. Trump’s status as a world-famous celebrity over the past decade.
