The Terminator star replaced Trump on Celebrity Apprentice and the ratings have not been as desirable for the NBC reality competition show as they have been in years past.
"They hired a big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place," Trump said at the annual event. "And we know how that turned out. The ratings went right down the tubes.
"It's been a total disaster and I just want to pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings."
The former California governor quickly responded on Twitter in a video suggesting they swap positions.

"Hey Donald, I have a great idea," Schwarzenegger says in the video. "Why don't we switch jobs? You take over TV because you're such an expert at ratings, and I take your job, and people can finally sleep comfortably again."
