Radio host Howard Stern is quick to give his opinion. Stern, who is promoting a new book, recently called Trump a top 5 guest of all time while stating the reason he thinks Trump ran for president in 2016.

According to Fox News:

"So Donald said, 'Would you please come to the Republican Convention and speak on my behalf?' And I went, 'Oh my God,'" Stern recalled. "You know, it's a weird thing because here a guy is asking — who asks me to do a thing like that? — and it was very nice, but I had to find a way and say 'Look, I can't do this.'"

 

The host of "The Howard Stern Show" then said he didn't believe Trump really wanted to be president. According to Stern, the only reason Trump ran in 2016 was that he was seeking a pay raise from NBC for "The Apprentice."

"What did he say? 'I'll run for president, I'll get a lot of press,' and I really believe that Donald ... This was a gimmick to get NBC to raise up his salary and to keep 'The Apprentice' on," Stern said. "And I would bet the farm on that."

Stern later joked that had he endorsed Trump, he would have become "Chief Justice on the Supreme Court" or "the head of the FCC."

Stern also stated that Trump wanted his endorsement but he declined because he was a big supporter of Hillary Clinton.
