@thehill We should get the White House's comment on this later today.

Apparently one season was enough for him.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who replaced Donald Trump as host of “Celebrity Apprentice,” is calling it quits:
In remarks Friday, the former California governor cited President Trump, who has repeatedly mocked the ratings of his reality TV replacement, as his reason.
“Even if asked [to do it again] I would decline,” Schwarzenegger told Empire . “I learned a lot, I had a great time, it was a really great opportunity. But under the circumstances I don’t want to do it again.”
“With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or sponsor or in any other way support the show. It’s a very divisive period right now and I think the show got caught up in all that division.”

Not everyone’s inclined to believe that “baggage” was the real problem:
@thehill Oh, is that the reason? 🙄

This season’s ratings were, shall we say, less than stellar.
@thehill Oh good he sucked

@thehill more like because the ratings suck
— ┌П┐(•_•) (@exposeliberals) March 3, 2017
@thehill Or the bad ratings?
— Booga 7 (@commonsensemom2) March 3, 2017
@thehill or maybe because of the really low ratings?
— John A. (@John_AllenH) March 3, 2017
@thehill Actually it has to do with his shitty ratings

@thehill Oh suuuuuurreeee, or it could be the obviously low ratings, but lets blame Trump.

The Celebrity Apprentice with Mark Cuban is going to be awful.

So … over-under on how long it takes for the president to comment?
I'm sure Trump will leave this alone and just take the high road. https://t.co/ScEtrTXEWS

How long until Trump tweets about what a loser Schwarzenegger is and how much better his ratings were? No way he can resist. https://t.co/RrG0GBQrrj
