New “Celebrity Apprentice” host Arnold Schwarzenegger told Americans who did not support Donald Trump need to “stop whining” and get behind the president-elect.
“Now he’s elected, and now it is very important that we all support the president, and that we all come together and we stop whining and it becomes one nation,” he told NBC’s Matt Lauer on the “Today Show” Thursday morning. “It’s not blue states and red states. It’s the United States of America.”
Schwarzenegger, the actor and former governor of California, who did not originally back Trump, was chosen as the host of the television program after NBC put the “Apprentice” franchise on hold after Trump entered the presidential race.
Trump, who had hosted the show since it launched in 2004, will remain an executive producer even as he takes office, and could be getting a portion of any product integration deals done for the show. Top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway told CNN he would focus on the show in his spare time.
