Arnold Schwarzenegger Quits ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ Trump Says He Was ‘Fired’
Arnold Schwarzenegger Quits ‘Celebrity Apprentice’
He won’t be back!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is cashing out on “The New Celebrity Apprentice” after one season.
In a statement to CNN, the former California governor said he loved working on the show, but he isn’t beat for the “baggage,” of a show that has ties to Donald Trump.
I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone — from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department — was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn’t have this baggage.
Donald Trump Says Schwarzenegger Was Fired
It wasn’t long before Donald Trump caught a case of Twitter fingers and began trolling Arnold Schwarzenegger.
According to Trump, Arnold didn’t quit…he was fired.
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show

Arnold clapped back by tweeting:
You should think about hiring a new joke writer and a fact checker. https://t.co/SvAjuPdHfa
