“It was actually really cool because it wasn’t one of those things where he wanted to take over like, ‘oh it’s me, Donald Trump ,’ it wasn’t that at all.

“He actually came into the position and was like, ‘look man I want to make this as great as possible, so tell me what I can do’.

“At the time when I was doing it I didn’t really understand the magnitude of it. No one could have seen Donald Trump becoming the President.”
