NBC rebooted the Apprentice franchise earlier this year with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger after severing business ties with Trump in 2015 due to his presidential campaign.
Though Trump left the show, he still retains an executive producer credit and his name appears in the titles. In December, Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks said that the then-president-elect had a “stake” in the show because he co-created it with reality TV producer Mark Burnett.

Schwarzenegger defended Trump’s credit in an interview the same month, explaining that he still received royalties from his Terminator films after becoming governor of California.
