President-elect Donald Trump, who has already said he will forego his presidential salary except for $1.00 a year, may also forego his Celebrity Apprentice salary as Executive Producer as well.
Trump’s top adviser and former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said that “Trump is still consulting with ethics experts to determine whether it would be proper to stay on as executive producer on the NBC reality show he used to host.”
Conway stated during a CNN interview on Friday that, “He’s a very transparent guy. Everyone can see what he’s doing,” she said. “And the fact is that he’s conferring with all types of experts to tell him what he’s allowed to do and not to do as the president of the United States, and if this is one of the approved activities, perhaps he’ll consider staying on.”
The Hill reported that when the CNN reporter alluded to the possibility that his position on the Celebrity Apprentice might distract him from his duties as president, Conway hit back with this.
“Okay, but were we so concerned about the hours and hours and hours spent on the golf course of the current president?” Conway said. “I mean, presidents have a right to do things in their spare time or their leisure time, I mean nobody objects to that.”
