Arnold Schwarzenegger is replacing Donald Trump as the host of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' in the US. Trump has left the show to concentrate on running for President, while producers say Arnie will bring fresh ideas to the show.

Paul Telegdy, NBC's president for alternative and late night programming, said: "Arnold Schwarzenegger is the epitome of a global brand in entertainment and business, and his accomplishments in the political arena speak for themselves.

"It was Arnold's personal passion for the format that Mark Burnett and Donald Trump built over the last decade, as well as his fresh take on how to take it to new heights for today's audiences, that made him the man to hire."

Donald has congratulated the actor on Twitter, he wrote: 

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Congrats to my friend <a href="https://twitter.com/Schwarzenegger">@Schwarzenegger</a> who is doing next season’s Celebrity Apprentice. He&#39;ll be great &amp; will raise lots of $ for charity.</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/643464030749859840">September 14, 2015</a></blockquote>

While Arnie tweeted: 

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Wow. I&#39;m blown away and honored by all your tweets. I can&#39;t wait to bring my experience to the board room &amp; raise millions for charity.</p>&mdash; Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) <a href="https://twitter.com/Schwarzenegger/status/643461076919578625">September 14, 2015</a></blockquote>
