Donald Trump is to launch a new television game show in the New Year, with a top prize of one billion dollars and a guaranteed place on his Cabinet.

Participants will have to be millionaires to qualify and will perform a series of tasks under the watchful eye of the President-elect and his Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

Steve Bannon, who will also be one of the judges, revealed how contestants can get the edge over their opponents.

“There is a Phone-a-Friend lifeline available, so any candidate that has Vladimir Putin’s personal cell phone number will have a big advantage.”
