Arnold Schwarzenegger Defends Donald Trump's Continued Role with 'Apprentice'

Arnold Schwarzenegger has spoken out to defend Donald Trump for retaining his role as an executive producer on The New Celebrity Apprentice while in office as the President of the United States.

The 69-year-old actor compares the situation to him earning royalty checks for Terminator while serving as the Governor of California.

“I knew from the beginning that [Trump] is executive producer on the show,” Arnold said (via THR). “It is no different then when I was governor. My credit on Terminator said ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger’ when I was governor. I made royalties. That didn’t change.”

“I want my ratings a little higher than his was,” Arnold said.

“It’s not a political show. We make no comments about politics,” he added (via EW). “When I was building a career in Hollywood and I was a Republican, everyone said, ‘Arnold you are going to fail because Hollywood is a very liberal town.’ My beliefs are my beliefs. And you know what? They don’t judge you by your politics in the end. People went to see my movies because they enjoyed the movies.”
