Reports of Donald Trump splitting his time between the Oval Office and the Celebrity Apprentice boardroom are apparently greatly exaggerated, with the president-elect himself weighing in Saturday morning. "Reports by @CNN that I will be working on The Apprentice during my Presidency, even part time, are ridiculous & untrue - FAKE NEWS!," he tweeted, which the AP notes followed, "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!" Trump's successor on the show, Arnold Schwarzenegger, meanwhile, also dismissed his predecessor's producer credits on the new season of the show, saying, "So, I think this is a contract that he had and I think it's great that he was part of it."
