When the New York City mayor Randall Winston on the sitcom Spin City needed advice about writing his memoir, Donald Trump was there. In Trump’s cameo in a 1998 episode, he swaggers into the mayor’s office, sits in his chair without asking, and claims that writing his books The Art of the Deal and The Art of the Comeback were a snap for him: “First day, nine chapters.”
In another cameo, in The Nanny, Trump is a man who carries not one, but two mobile phones – in 1996. In The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in 1994, his mere entrance causes the family’s resident conservative, Carlton, to faint. Other highlights of the future president of the United States’ television career include: play-acting a 'hostile takeover' of Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon during a televised wrestling match that ended with him getting slammed to the mat, asking Denis Leary’s character on The Job about whom he was “banging”, and networking with a rich older man trying to woo Samantha on Sex and the City.
