 Hurley also plans to do a live on-air auction of items including a four-person game at Trump National Golf Club in Colts Neck, a private club in Monmouth County.

“I want to take this opportunity to thank the greatest community of friends and unconditional supporters anywhere to be found in America for their unwavering support over the past six years,” Hurley said.
