Lets Take A Moment To Remember The Moment Donald Trump Appeared On The Big Breakfast in 1998


If you grew up in the 1980s and 90s, chances are, you will remember this pair of jokers.


Zig and Zag was a Channel 4 team of characters that belonged to The Big Breakfast. They used to joke about on the show and on one occasion they got to meet a certain Mr Donald Trump.

Clearly this was a long time before Trump had his eye on the USA Presidency (yes he really is the President now). He appeared on the show to give the puppets some real estate advice.

The pair met Trump in the Bahamas at the opening of the Royal Towers hotel, and decided he would be a good person to ask advice from on their new project “Zogland”.

In the video, the 45th President of the United States tells Zig and Zag: “It would cost about 700m pounds in your world, I deal in dollars but you guys deal in pounds right?

“It would be very easy for you to do, you’ll become great real estate entrepreneurs.”

He tells the pair they will need to look out for “vicious finance people.”

“They’re mean, they’re terrible, they don’t sleep at night, they toss and turn and sweat, how to take advantage of you.”


Zag chips in to thank Mr Trump saying: “Well Donald, thanks a million for sharing some sort of knowledge with us.”

But Trumps advice isn’t free.

He adds: “Well because I shared the knowledge, I want a piece of the project. I don’t do this for nothing. I’m not that nice a guy, I don’t do it for nothing. I want at least 20%.”

Zig and Zag negotiate but as they are total idiots, they say a 50% share would be better for them. They then seal the deal with a handshake.

Here is the moment for your entertainment.
