But… just how close are CNN president Jeff Zucker and Trump?
Well, fairly close, as it turns out.
As a tipster pointed out, Trump was more than supportive of CNN’s decision to name Zucker its next president:
And in a video, Zucker said, “I love Donald, I think he’s a charismatic, magnetic figure, and I think he’s the reason that show [The Apprentice] has worked.”
Remember… Zucker was Trump’s boss during his tenure at NBC.
