On Saturday, in response, Trump said Schwarzenegger had been “fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings”. Schwarzenegger replaced the president as host of the show, but Trump remained as an executive producer. .
The president taunted Schwarzenegger for the show’s recent poor performance in the ratings, even mocking him during an address at the National Prayer Breakfast. .
“With Trump being involved in the show, people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show,” Schwarzenegger had said.
