President-elect Donald Trump made clear on Twitter Saturday morning that working on "The New Celebrity Apprentice" will be his last priority as president.
I have NOTHING to do with The Apprentice except for fact that I conceived it with Mark B & have a big stake in it. Will devote ZERO TIME!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 10, 2016
Trump followed that message up with another that shamed "fake news" for spreading such "ridiculous rumors."
Although Arnold Schwarzenegger will take over as the head honcho in "The Apprentice" boardroom, a spokeswoman for "Apprentice" producer Mark Burnett reported last week that Trump would stay on as the NBC show's executive producer. Some in the media took that to mean the president-elect would be dedicating some of his precious presidential time to overseeing the program and that it would pose a conflict of interest.
As far as Trump's Twitter account is concerned, that is not the case.
