Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has held talks to proceed with a television startup on the Republican presidential nominee’s behalf, the Financial Times reports. Kushner reportedly contacted Aryeh Bourkoff, of investment bank LionTree, to that end. Trump has in the past denied that he’s looking to start his own channel. He told The Washington Post just last month that he has “no interest” in a media company, despite the fact that digital-media entrepreneur and erstwhile Breitbart-head Stephen Bannon is one of Trump’s top advisers and the CEO of his presidential campaign.
