CNN’s president Jeff Zucker didn’t rule out running for mayor of New York City today when he participated in at an event held by the Paley Center for Media, led by BuzzFeed’s Ben Smith. At the event, Zucker also refused to give in to Donald Trump’s demands and pay him $5 million to participate in the upcoming GOP debate in Nevada.
When Smith asked him if he would consider running for elected office, Zucker responded, “I would still think about that, yeah.”
Smith then suggested running for mayor of NYC, and after pausing momentarily, Zucker replied, “You know, I would consider anything.”
According to a CBS report, Zucker noted he wasn’t sure how long he would stay at CNN.
NYC won’t have another mayoral election until 2017.
