Donald Trump Goes After Celebrity Apprentice Ratings
Let's keep our eye on the USA, Trump
Trump is seemingly more concerned with TV ratings than White House Intelligence Meetings as he's on Twitter again, bashing Celebrity Apprentice.
Arnold Schwarzenegger's Celebrity Apprentice are in and Donald Trump revealed his (gleeful) feelings — all of which he publicly shared on Twitter.
"Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got 'swamped' (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT," Trump tweeted Friday morning.

It had been reported this week that the premiere night of Arnold's Celebrity Apprentice tied a ratings low for the reality show.
To cut "The Terminator" a little slack, Schwarzenegger was up against ESPN’s Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl and the premiere of The Bachelor, which won the time slot. Not to mention, Deadline reported that "NBC affiliates owned by Hearst stations are blacked out on DirecTV."
But President-elect Trump, who is still executive producer on the series, translated the anemic ratings as a sign that Schwarzenegger wasn't as big of a celebrity as he thought.
"So much for being a movie star," Trump tweeted, before telling people to compare his first season ratings to Arnold Schwarzenegger's.
being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported Kasich & Hillary— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2017
Schwarzenegger quickly responded to Trump's tweets about his ratings, reminding him that he should be more concerned about his current job, not his old one. "There's nothing more important than the people's work, @realDonaldTrump," he wrote.
From the Governator to the "unpresidented" President Elect, we side with @Schwarzenegger. Keep your eye on the US, Trump and not on TV ratings -- You're our President now.
