Playing Arnold Schwarzenegger Says Trump Will Have No Involvement in His 'Apprentice,' Weighs in On New Catchphrase

Arnold Schwarzenegger has terminated speculation about Donald Trump's executive producer role on Celebrity Apprentice, saying the president-elect is not a part of the reality competition.

POLL: How should Arnold Schwarzenegger replace Donald Trump’s signature line “You’re fired!”?

“I think it’s perfectly fine that he has executive producer credit because he created the show with Mark Burnett together, so why should his credit go?" The True Lies actor asked the Today show’s Matt Lauer Thursday. "He made it very clear that he has no interest in being involved."

He added: "It is now my show, I’m the host, I’m the new boss and I’m going to run this show."

The former California governor also said that Donald Trump was heavily involved in the negotiations to get him on Celebrity Apprentice, which debuts next month.

“He was part of the negotiations, so I get millions of dollars for hosting the show, but NBC doesn’t have to pay for it — Trump makes Mexico pay for it!" he said. "I mean, isn't that great?”

The Jingle All The Way actor also said that although he didn’t support Trump during the campaign, America should come together and back the president-elect.

“Now he’s elected, and now it is very important that we all support the president, and that we all come together and we stop whining and it becomes one nation,” he said.

POLL: How should Arnold Schwarzenegger replace Donald Trump’s signature line “You’re fired!”?

Schwarzenegger was asked how he plans to replace Trump's signature “You’re fired!” line.

The Austria-born actor then started rattling off some of his signature tag lines from his famous films.

“Hasta la vista, baby,” “get to the chopper,” “you are terminated,” he dished. He did not reveal which, if any, he plans to shout at departing contestants.

The New Celebrity Apprentice with Arnold as host airs January 2 on NBC.
