Trump Wants CNN to Donate GOP Debate Proceeds to Veterans
The presidential hopeful wrote a letter to CNN President Jeff Zucker Tuesday in which he noted that ad rates for the GOP debate were being sold at a nearly 4,000 percent increase (from $5,000 to $200,000), and said that the “tremendous increase in viewer interest and advertising is due 100 percent to ‘Donald J. Trump.'”
He reminded Zucker that the GOP debate on FOX had one of the largest viewerships in cable TV history, and anticipated that the CNN debate would bring in an even larger audience. And he asked Zucker to put all that money to good use.
