The former Alaska governor has some experience running for the White House — she was pegged as presidential candidate John McCain’s VP in the 2008 election.

Also like Trump, Palin has been a reality TV star, appearing in Sarah Palin’s Alaska and Amazing America with Sarah Palin.

Trump and his tagline “You’re fired” got huge ratings on The Apprentice and spin-off Celebrity Apprentice.

More to come.
