Donald Trump joined his former Apprentice producer Mark Burnett at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington on Thursday.
There, the president couldn’t resist talking about his former reality TV show and taking a shot at his replacement as host, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Speaking to the crowd, Trump mused about the “great success” he had with Burnett on The Apprentice and slammed the “big movie star” Burnett replaced him with.
“We know how that turned out,” he said to laughs. “The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster. And Mark will never ever bet against Trump again.”
The president then added, smiling and laughing afterward, “And I want to just pray for Arnold if we can, for those ratings.”
