Donald Trump set to choose presidential running mate on election special of The Apprentice

The Presidential candidate will say "You're hired!" to his prospective Vice President in a one-off episode of the business reality show


Who will Donald Trump choose as his running mate in the Presidential elections if he becomes the Republican Party candidate? All sorts of names are being tossed around, from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, current opponent Ted Cruz to, of course, Sarah Palin.


But how do you make such a hugely important decision? hears that Trump has a cunning plan for deciding who to name as his prospective VP…

According to sources, the billionaire is bidding to buy the format for his former business reality show The Apprentice from US network NBC, after they parted ways following controversial comments Trump made about immigrants. Trump will then get back behind the boardroom table in a one-off special designed to put a number of potential running mates through their paces.

Tasks will include leading a team of Mexican workers to build sections of a wall around Trump Tower – with the results judged on factors including height, strength and the aesthetic appeal of its “big, beautiful door” – and a presentation exercise in which candidates will be asked to counter a series of policy questions using only rhetoric that can be understood in the average American school playground.

The winner of the process will be told “You’re hired!”, while the unsuccessful candidates will be shot in the middle of Fifth Avenue.
