Sunday’s edition of NBC’s Meet The Press with Chuck Todd will feature an interview with WWE Hall of Famer and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, his first since the Republican National Convention.
Trump’s entrance at the RNC was compared to The Undertaker’s entrance by several media outlets and Trump told Todd that Vince McMahon approved of the entrance. Below is a transcript from the interview:
CHUCK TODD: Let me tell you, you bring up Thursday night, I’ve got to ask you about your entrance. Before we get to Thursday, that Monday night entrance was something else. I know you’ve gotten a lot of feedback on it.
DONALD TRUMP: I think I’m a little bit lucky, and a couple of people had that idea and I went along with the idea. And everything just worked right. And it was so good that they wanted to do it on Thursday night. I said, “Never in a million years, because you’ll never get it that way again.”
CHUCK TODD: I don’t think I’ve seen that even on WWE.
DONALD TRUMP: Yeah, I know. Well, Vincent’s a good friend of mine. He called me, he said, “That was a very, very good entrance.” But I didn’t want to do it a second time, because, you know, it never works out the second time.
