What do you do when the media is, in your view, rigging an election against you? Set up your own media organisation, of course.
Donald Trump's son-in-law has been having talks about helping his dad set up a new TV network, just days after the Republican candidate claimed that the media was rigging the US election.
Jared Kushner has informally approached one of the industry's top deal-makers, Aryeh Bourkoff, the founder and chief executive of LionTree investment bank, about setting up a network, the Financial Times reported.
Apparently, the conversations were brief, and talks haven't progressed any further.
Yesterday the Republican candidate tweeted that the election was being rigged by the media. He earlier said they were "putting stories that never happened into news".
The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary - but also at many polling places - SAD— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2016
Kushner, who is married to Trump's daughter, Ivanka, is a friend of Bourkoff and the pair have worked together in the past.
Election is being rigged by the media, in a coordinated effort with the Clinton campaign, by putting stories that never happened into news!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 16, 2016
In polls published this weekend, Trump was trailing Hillary Clinton by 11 points. Ouch.
