If elected President of the US, Donald Trump will abstain from appointing a vice-president and instead hire an ‘apprentice’. The selection process will include a drawn-out reality television contest to be aired on NBC, during which a series of candidates will come under verbal abuse from Mr Trump. The eventual winner will travel aboard Air Force One on an ejector seat.
‘When Donald clinches the nomination, we expect a sudden rush of all the best people from Wall Street, Silicon Valley and Mensa towards our team,’ said Trump’s spokesman. ‘High flyers will be falling over themselves, competition promises to be tough and low energy candidates will be at a particular disadvantage.’
Trump’s rivals for the Republican nomination have condemned the move and signed up with NBC on a provisional basis.
