Trump Closing In On A Presidential Run
Donald Trump may use the season finale of Celebrity Apprentice on May 22 to promote his presidential ambitions and is considering how to do so without running afoul of the FCC's Equal Time rule. In an interview with today's (Friday) New York Times , Trump said "I believe I can say I will be announcing my decision in a few days ... But before I did that I would get the approval of NBC." However, he noted, he hasn't made that decision yet -- principally because Celebrity Apprentice remains one of NBC's top-rated shows. Trump told the Times that there were other ways he could promote his candidacy on the show. "I might ask the two finalists if I should run for president. ... Of course, if they're intelligent they'll have to say yes, since I'm about to fire one of them."
