Don’t Let Trump Collect Royalties From “The New Celebrity Apprentice”

Target: Mark Burnett, President of MGM Television and Digital Group

Goal: Prevent Trump from making millions of dollars off a reality show, by cutting him out of businesses ties with MGM.

Though NBC previously claimed they had severed ties with Donald Trump, the network has since announced a new season of the President-elect’s old reality-TV show. While he is not the host, he still serves as an executive director, meaning he will take home a paycheck estimated to be around $7 million. It is deplorable that NBC is running another season, but Trump’s royalties will actually be coming from MGM, who owns the production company that produces “The New Celebrity Apprentice.” Mark Burnett, MGM’s president, denounced Trump after he made derogatory comments about Mexicans and immigrants, but has since reportedly been planning Trump’s Inauguration Day activities.

Trump having business ties to a major news network while serving as president could tempt him to influence policies for that company in his favor. NBC is a parent company of Comcast, which is regulated by the Federal Communications Commission, which Trump will soon oversee. Demand that MGM drop Trump and no longer support efforts that fill his wallet.


Dear Mr. Burnett,

You were right to denounce Trump when he made demeaning comments about immigrants and Mexican-Americans, and because you and NBC claimed to have broken ties with the now President-elect, it was believed his reality show would be no more. The appearance of a new season dictates otherwise and inevitably puts more money in Trump’s bank account.

As a major news network, NBC should not have any financial ties to a president due to the temptation to influence policies that affect revenue. Trump’s various business connections are already under scrutiny, and this relationship has brought on widespread suspicions as well. Your company writes the royalty checks Trump is slated to receive. Please remove him from his position with MGM and “The New Celebrity Apprentice” so that this racist, sexist man does not benefit financially.

  1. Absurd hubris from sore losers. Leftists hate profit – we know that – but this one to deny profits from a silly TV show as something of national concern is a stretch even for these twits.

  2. He gets away with EVERYTHING!! Why?
