Republican candidate Donald Trumps campaign said it raised United States dollars 9 million through a Facebook Live event from more than 150,000 donors during the third and final presidential debate. Could Kushner be using Facebook Live to gauge interest for a potential TrumpTV?
The alternative broadcast, viewed by more than eight million people, could be the start of a new business venture for the NY tycoon: a Trump TV network. For context, Fox receives an average of 2.14 million viewers during primetime, The Wrap reports.
Were Mr Trump to launch a network, he could likely rely on support from several "mainstream" conservative media talents, including Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly from Fox News.
Immediately following the debate, Trump's livestream updated, from a straight-debate watch party to a Trump panel, with members of the campaign staff, Internet-famous surrogates Diamond and Silk, and Omarosa praising his performance, airing anti-Clinton campaign ads, and criticizing the "mainstream media".
So is this legit? "And if that's what you want, four more years of what we've seen under President Obama, then by all means, vote for her". This campaign is full of October surprises.
Formula One star Hamilton snaps pic, takes all questions
Asked how he will cope should his Mercedes teammate triumph, the 31-year-old replied: "I would try to take it like a man". Hamilton secured his third title in Austin previous year , but the Briton arrives in America firmly on the back foot.
Ivanka Trump made an appearance in a call for campaign donations before the debate, and both Eric and Donald Trump Jr. appeared afterward to talk about what they thought was a decisive win for their father. "You go point by point, he knocked it out of the park", Sims said. When The New York Times recently published the accounts of two women who claim Trump touched them inappropriately, which he has vehemently and consistently denied, he promptly threatened to sue.
And if there is a Trump TV, that will create the question of what happens to Fox News, especially now that founder Roger Ailes is gone (though Ailes, who was advising Trump, may have become frustrated with the nominee's unwillingness to take advice).
According to a Facebook spokesperson, the social network has advised the Trump campaign on a number of content initiatives, including Facebook Live.
Media experts and politicos have been abuzz about the prospect of "Trump TV" - a post-election network aimed at Trump fans - for months.
"I think I'll be so busy at the White House that I don't know that I would have any time to participate in any entity like that because we'll be busy helping to make America great", Omarosa said.
