President TrumpDonald John TrumpCorker: US must determine responsibility in Saudi journalist's death Five takeaways from testy Heller-Rosen debate in Nevada Dem senator calls for US action after 'preposterous' Saudi explanation MORE met with the founder of TMZ,  Harvey Levin, to discuss exclusive television interviews, Entity Magazine reported Wednesday.

Last Wednesday's Oval Office meeting, which was not mentioned on Trump's public schedule, reportedly lasted about an hour.

Sources told reporters that Levin was given a private tour of the White House before meeting with Trump.

Last fall, Levin interviewed then-President-elect Trump at Trump Tower in an exclusive Fox News special, "Objectified: Donald Trump."


“The show was a huge success, and the two were discussing future opportunities,” White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks told The New York Times, which also reported the story.

Fox announced last month that the special was being spun off into a television series hosted by Levin that will feature in-depth interviews with celebrities and high-profile figures. The show debuts in September.

According to the report, Levin is considering interviewing Trump a second time for an episode of the new show. It also reported another one of Levin's ideal guests would be New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who is a friend of Trump. Levin reportedly asked Trump to help him secure that interview.
