"I'll be gauging the reception I feel he would have when he comes to Iowa," Michael Cohen said. "The man has proven experience, he is one of the richest men in the world, he has the most prolific name on the planet, and his negotiation skills are second to none."

The Apprentice star, 64, told the Des Moines Register on Thursday that he was planning a trip to the Corn State himself soon.
