Kellyanne Conway Defends Trump’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Role: He’ll Do It In His ‘Spare Time’

Donald Trump earned some flack when it was announced he would remain an executive producer on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice on Thursday. Even so, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was quick to defend him on CNN’s New Day the following morning — claiming that Trump would only be involved during his “spare time.”

From an outsider’s perspective, Trump’s transition team seems like they are moving at a snail’s pace. The Republican nominee was cautious about preparing such a team on the campaign trail, and now that he’s president-elect, reports indicate Trump is getting minimal security briefings. Perhaps he’s overwhelmed — hence why the supposed “spare time” he will have remains a mystery. Yet Conway stresses Trump isn’t taking this matter lightly:

“He’s a very transparent guy. Everyone can see what he’s doing, and the fact is that he is conferring with all types of experts who tell him what he can do and not do as president of the United States. If this is one of the approved activities, then perhaps he will consider staying on.”
