“They hired a big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger to take my place, and we know how that turned out,” Trump said at the top of his remarks at this morning’s National Prayer Breakfast.
Praying for reality TV ratings at a faith and prayer forum, he continued, “The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster. And Mark [Burnett] will never, ever bet against Trump again, and I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings.”
A spokesman for Schwarzenegger fired back at Trump this morning.
“Arnold is praying that President Trump can start improving his own approval ratings, which were the worst in history for an incoming president, by taking his job seriously and working inclusively," Daniel Ketchell, the spokesman, told ABC News.
And Schwarzenegger himself responded by saying:
“Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs: You take over TV, because you are such an expert in ratings, and I take your job. Then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”
