Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has reportedly contacted a top dealmaker in the media industry within the past couple of months about creating a Trump television network, the Financial Times reported.

{mosads}Kushner and Aryeh Bourkoff, the founder and chief executive of LionTree, a boutique investment bank, reportedly had a short conversation regarding the possibility of setting up a Trump television network following the presidential election.

But there have been no other developments.

Vanity Fair in June reported that Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, was mulling the idea of creating a cable channel as his personal media company.

The publication said Trump had talked about a “mini-media conglomerate” for the “audience” after his presidential campaign.

The Republican nominee has since said he has “no interest in a media company.”

He called the prospect a “false rumor” in an interview last month with The Washington Post.

Trump often rails on the media’s coverage of his campaign. In recent days, he has argued the media, in connection with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign, is rigging the election.
