Donald Trump floats news of rumors that ex-head of Fox News Roger Ailes will ‘run his campaign’

Donald Trump has broken his silence on the ouster of Roger Ailes from Fox News.

“Well, I don’t want to comment,” he told Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet The Press” set to air Sunday, according to a transcript obtained by BNO News. “But he’s been a friend of mine for a long time.”

The Republican presidential nominee said Ailes did a lot to help the women, starting with Gretchen Carlson, who have now accused him of the sexual harassment charges that led to his departure.

“And when they write books that are fairly recently released, and they say wonderful things about him,” Trump said. “And now all of a sudden they’re saying these horrible things about him. It’s very sad. Because he’s a very good person. I’ve always found him to be just a very, very good person.”

Trump wouldn’t say if Ailes helped him with his campaign, as has been rumored, but cryptically said “a lot of people are thinking he’s going to run my campaign” before ending the interview.
