Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he will not be hosting The New Celebrity Apprentice and he did it at The Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio that is being held this weekend. This festival was named in his honor and it attracts thousands of bodybuilding fanatics from all over.
Supposedly, Arnold said that due to the show’s ties by President Donald Trump he found it impossible to “do business as usual” and this forced him to resign.
According to the Daily Mail, Arnold claims that, “’when people found out that Trump was still involved as executive producer and was still receiving money from the show, then half the people [began] boycotting it.”
It didn’t help that Trump had tweeted last month that Arnold “did a really bad job as governor of California and even worse on The Apprentice, but at least he tried”.
Nevertheless, all this negativity didn’t stop Arnold from attending his event and having fun taking photos with the fans and proud that he is a huge influence in the bodybuilding industry.
