Arnold Schwarzenegger immediately took to Twitter to respond to President Trump’s Thursday morning comments about ratings for reality show “Celebrity Apprentice” at the National Prayer Breakfast.
During his opening remarks at the annual breakfast, Trump pointed to his “tremendous success” on “Celebrity Apprentice” and blasted the former California governor, who took over as host when Trump launched his presidential bid.
“They hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger to take my place, and we know how that turned out,” Trump said at the breakfast.
“The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster. And [producer] Mark [Burnett] will never, ever bet against Trump again, and I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings.”
In his Twitter video, Schwarzenegger suggested that the president could switch with him and come back to his reality show.
“Hey Donald I have a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job,” said Schwarzenegger in a video. “And then people can finally sleep comfortable again. Hmm?”
A spokesman for Schwarzenegger also sent a statement to ABC News following Trump’s Thursday remarks.
