AceShowbiz - %cArnold Schwarzenegger% has reacted to %cDonald Trump%'s jab about his "The Celebrity Apprentice" ratings. The actor posted on Twitter a video of himself on February 2, telling the president to switch jobs because he seems obsessed with ratings.
"Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don't we switch jobs?" asked Scwarzenegger. "You take over TV, because you're such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job. And then people can finally sleep comfortably again," he said, with an impish grin.

Trump previously joked about the show's rating at the National Prayer Breakfast on February 2. He said, "When I ran for president I knew I had to leave the show, that's when I knew for sure I was doing it." He added, "And they hired a big, big movie star Arnold Scwarzenegger to take my place, and we know how that turned out."
"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," Trump said. "But we've had an amazing life together the last 14, 15 years. An outstanding man. Thank you for introducing me," he told Burnett, "The Apprentice" creator as he listened to Trump's speech a few feet away.
