Donald Trump continues his successful run of making headlines by asking questions few have thought, or would think, to speak.

In fact, the Donald had a lot to say in Time magazine's cover story, not the least of which was his suggestion that he is such a ratings draw that CNN should pay him to appear at its presidential debate on Sept. 16.

"Here's my question: So if I go to CNN and I say, Look, you're going to have a massive audience, and if I say to them, I want $10 million for charity, nothing for myself, what happens? I'm not showing up, right?," he told the magazine.

Trump continued, suggesting that the proposed $10 million could be divvied up in $1 million increments to 10 different charities.

The presidential hopeful was the main draw of Fox New's recent Republican debate, which snagged 24 million viewers overall -- the highest-rated non-sports cable telecast of all time.

As the GOP political race continues to pick up, Trump has received more and more headline coverage. Whether it's NBC's announcement that "Celebrity Apprentice" will continue without him, the Twitter rant about Megyn Kelly, or being the brunt of the jokes at this year's Television Critics Association panels, this extra attention isn't always a good thing.
