Apparently one season was enough for him. Or is it that America had enough of Arnold Schwarzenegger after one season?
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who replaced Donald Trump as host of “Celebrity Apprentice,” is calling it quits:
In remarks Friday, the former California governor cited President Trump, who has repeatedly mocked the ratings of his reality TV replacement, as his reason.
“Even if asked [to do it again] I would decline,” Schwarzenegger told Empire . “I learned a lot, I had a great time, it was a really great opportunity. But under the circumstances I don’t want to do it again.”
“With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or sponsor or in any other way support the show. It’s a very divisive period right now and I think the show got caught up in all that division.”
NYT’s TV reporter John Koblin made the announcement on Twitter:

While Schwarzenegger is blaming Trump, Twitter users are blaming the ratings:
