Trust me, being dragged out is the only way he is leaving.

According to three people with knowledge of the situation and another source close to Trump, Apprentice creator Mark Burnett and the president have sporadically kept in touch, mostly over the phone, since Trump won the election. The pair remain friends, these sources say, and have discussed reviving their creative partnership, pitching each other details on potential TV projects to be filmed after the Trump presidency.

One of the ideas kicked around by Burnett and the president was shooting a new version of the Trump-branded Apprentice, tentatively titled The Apprentice: White House, and to produce it shortly after the president leaves office. This time, however, the TV program would be explicitly politics-themed and take full advantage of Trump’s status as a former president of the United States and a newfound Republican kingmaker.

“There have been several discussions between Burnett and Trump about The Apprentice: White House,” a person with knowledge of the situation told The Daily Beast. “It is something Burnett thinks could be a money-spinner and Trump is very keen on doing.”

Another one of the knowledgeable sources said, “They actually talked about an Apprentice: White House,” but conceded that “as far as I know, the discussion did not go far.”

The first question I have is whether the timeline on this idea is that it start five long years from now, or if Burnett and Trump are considering an earlier start date? 

You know, like sometime next year even?

I have always assumed that Trump would return ot television is some capacity, however most of my imagining had him starting his own cable news station, or getting his own show on Fox News. 

I think that no matter what happens, even an impeachment and short prison sentence, that Trump will still find an audience patiently waiting to see what he has to offer. 

I have a mountain of criticism to direct at Donald Trump but I will admit that the guy knows how to put on a show.
