President Donald Trump said Arnold Schwarzenegger was fired after bringing in “bad (pathetic) ratings” as the host of “New Celebrity Apprentice.”
Early Saturday morning, Trump tweeted his response to the former California governor after the 69-year-old action hero blamed the president on Friday as the reason he had to leave the show.
“Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show,” Trump tweeted.
During an interview with Empire Friday, the actor explained that his leaving was a direct result of the show being unable to garner support from sponsors and viewers because of the Trump’s connection to the show.
