Donald Trump tells Entertainment Tonight that he thinks NBC will rehire him. “I’m going to say the answer is yes, because I get ratings. The Apprentice would have died without me. Mark Cuban did The Benefactor, and it didn’t work, unfortunately. Richard [Branson], who is a friend of mine, did another show [The Rebel Billionaire: Branson’s Quest for the Best] that didn’t work… I don’t know who can replace me. I’m sure someone maybe can replace me, but all I can say is there have been 15 copies of The Apprentice and every one of them failed.”
As for Trump, Arnold tells USA Today: ''As Trump goes on he's going to say things that are out there and are hideous and that will sometimes hurt the party and hurt himself. They will understand what they need to say to communicate. And not to say things that maybe are not appropriate."
