UFC owner meets Trump today, heads to Russia soon

Trump vs Putin at catchweight.

Ari Emanuel, the UFC’s new owner and Hollywood power broker, is scheduled to meet with Donald Trump on Sunday afternoon.

While it remains unclear why the co-CEO of sports entertainment entity WME-IMG is scheduled to meet with the president-elect, POLITICO confirmed the news after Emanuel was sighted at the Trump National Golf Course in New Jersey on Sunday.

Emanuel’s relationship with Trump dates back years. The tycoon’s WME agency once represented Trump when he was a host on The Apprentice, and Trump even referred to him as a “close friend”. However, when the Hollywood Reporter questioned whether the agency was interested in re-signing him, Emanuel revealed that he is “not contemplating any of that.” WME later acquired the Miss Universe pageant from Trump, where Ari famously said “He wanted to sell it. ‘Great, we want to buy it.'”

While Emanuel is likely attempting to establish a working relationship with the man soon set to lead the United States, he does not share his political views. Ari is a longtime contributor to democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 bid. His brother, Rahm, is President Obama’s former Chief of Staff and a Chicago mayor with close times to the democratic party.

According to UFC President Dana White, the promotion is working on an event in the Russian Federation. Emanuel and White are expected to fly to Russia in the next few weeks to discuss the potential show in 2017. Support from Trump, a longtime friend of White and advocate for improved US-Russia relations, would undoubtedly be beneficial.

Hug it out, POTUS-elect.

Donald Trump got advice on assembling his White House entourage from an unusual source on Sunday — the talent agent who scored his TV deal for “The Apprentice.”

Ari Emanuel — famed as the inspiration for Jeremy Piven’s “Ari Gold” character on HBO’s “Entourage” — arrived for a sit-down at the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, N.J., shortly after noon.

As Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence headed inside with Emanuel, Trump introduced the super-agent to reporters by pointing to him and declaring: “The king of Hollywood.”

About 45 minutes later, Trump escorted Emanuel outside and said their meeting was “very good.”

“This is a great guy. He’s a great friend of mine,” Trump said as Emanuel hopped into the rear of a black Cadillac sedan and was driven away.

Emanuel is a stalwart Democrat whose brother, Rahm, was President Obama’s first chief of staff and is now the embattled mayor of Chicago.

But Trump has stayed pals with him since entering politics as a Republican, telling The Hollywood Reporter in June that Emanuel had offered to assist in the making of a film for the GOP convention in Cleveland.

Trump has more than a dozen meetings scheduled for Sunday, including with ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, both of whom were key campaign surrogates.

Asked if he would announce additional Cabinet members later in the day, Trump said it “could very well happen.”
