Newsmax chief says he’d welcome Trump to his cable channel but ‘we don’t want to be Trump TV’

All the talk about Donald Trump going from the White House to cable TV mogul doesn’t mean the president is going to take over Palm Beach County-based Newsmax and turn it into Trump TV.

“I would welcome the president’s involvement in the channel,” Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said Friday in a telephone interview.

But even for the longtime Trump friend there are limits. “We don’t want to be Trump TV. We want to be Newsmax.”

Newsmax, headquartered in Boca Raton, is so pro-Trump that it doesn’t recognize Joe Biden as the president elect, something done by every major news organization in the country. But Ruddy, who has a home and votes in West Palm Beach, said his friendship with the president has nothing to do with how Newsmax is calling the election.

“I’ve known the president for a long time. I’ve always kept the friendship separate from the editorial judgment.”

It’s unclear whether Bassey enjoys the two treats mixed together in a single bowl or whether she keeps both separate when she treats herself.

While she claims to not have any diet secrets, Bassey said she usually chooses nutritious food and loves to work out. “I try to eat healthy. I am a gym fanatic. A trainer comes to my apartment in Monaco three times a week. I try to go to the gym
