On Monday night, Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, declared during a Facebook Live broadcast that Trump TV will start airing non-stop until election day. Conway was very optimistic, repeating to the audience that the Republican nominee will win the elections while also marketing the new show that will coincide with all the main evening news broadcasts.
The entire thing had a very Republican feel, Conway being interviewed by two GOP campaign advisers, Cliff Sims and Boris Epshteyn.
The first edition of the evening campaign coverage shared similarities with an average newscast. Each night at 06:30 ET, the Trump campaign will broadcast a show from Trump Tower until November 8th.
Viewers will be able to check out a news scroll featured at the bottom of the show, and also find more details about how to donate money to the Republican’s campaign.
This Monday, the show was held in the “war room” where campaign managers were busy trying to “Make America Great Again.” The entire scene was dominated by a large portrait of the GOP candidate, watching over his subjects.
When asked about Trump TV, the host denied allegations that the channel will turn into a replica of Fox News in the event of a loss. She clearly stated that the real-estate mogul has no plans to monetize the broadcast or influence the media and his loyal supporters.
However, NPR discovered that Jared Kushner, owner of the New York Observer and the Republican’s son-in-law met with possible investors and discussed the details of a network.
Cliff Sims declared that the evening shows are just a way to motivate the GOP member’s supporters during these crucial weeks before the Election Day.
The first broadcast was not as successful as the team hoped as only 60,000 viewers tuned in. Moreover, about halfway through the transmission, only half of them remained, and during the final hour, when the broadcast featured a live Florida rally, the number of viewers decreased considerably.
Some political analysts believe that the picture that the show paints does not reflect the reality of Trump’s campaign. While Democrat Clinton is leading the polls, Trump representatives are still declaring that the Republican is ahead of her, being sure that he will win the fight this November.
