Current Nintendo Executive Officer Reginald “Reggie” Fils-Aime, and the Donald Trump presidential transition team are discussing a role for Mr. Fils-Aime within the President-elect Donald John Trump administration, say sources with knowledge of the interactions. According to these sources, speaking exclusively with KoopaTV under the condition of anonymity, Mr. Fils-Aime is seeking a position within the White House or United States government for one of:
- Federal Communications Commission
- Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission
- National Science Foundation
- Pacific Salmon Commission
President-elect Donald John Trump and Mr. Fils-Aime, according to sources, have some level of personal familiarity, having both been involved with Pizza Hut marketing around the same time — Mr. Trump in a commercial for stuffed-crust pizza, and Mr. Fils-Aime as Senior Director of National Marketing.
A source whose job it is to watch the C-Span press area pool feed of the Trump Tower elevators reported that someone who looked like Mr. Fils-Aime went up to the president-elect's office suite sometime Monday afternoon.
This comes amidst controversies surrounding both the president-elect and Mr. Fils-Aime. For Mr. Trump, questions have risen regarding the diversity of his cabinet, and the presence of dangerous “alt-right” elements at the highest levels of government. All across America's cities, protestors continue to contest the results of the election and chant that Mr. Trump does not represent them. For Mr. Fils-Aime, he is seen as the central figure preventing the cult classic MOTHER 3 from being localised for the North American audience. Protestors regularly sit outside of Nintendo of America, demanding its release, only to be forcibly removed by the Reggie Fils-A-Mech security system.

Mr. Fils-Aime, if selected for any position, would have to resign from Nintendo of America, and would have to disclose any potential financial conflicts of interest, a reversal of Mr. Fils-Aime's usually private personal life outside of his work at running Nintendo “16 hours a day.” Mr. Fils-Aime completed a Bachelor of Arts in applied economics and management at Cornell University in 1983, with strong performances in reviving Derby Cycle and VH1, before coming to Nintendo in 2003. He became president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America in 2006.
KoopaTV reached out to both the Trump transition team and to Nintendo of America for comments, but neither organisation has responded.

Mr. Fils-Aime previously canceled a lunch meeting with President Barack Hussein Obama.
