Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump participates in a debate sponsored by Fox News.

A key member of Donald Trump’s inner circle has contacted a media banker about the idea of setting up a new television network after the election, according to a published report.

The Financial Times reported that Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, contacted LionTree CEO Aryeh Bourkoff about the idea. The report, citing people with knowledge of the matter, said the conversation was brief and hasn’t progressed. But the report said the approach suggests that Kushner and the Republican candidate are looking at how to capitalize on their populist movement.
