President Donald Trump took time during his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday morning to make fun of Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Apprentice" ratings.

"When I ran for president I had to leave the ["Apprentice"], Trump said. "And they hired a big, big movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger to take my place."

He continued, calling out producer Mark Burnett: "And we know how that turned out. The ratings went right now the tubes, it's been a total disaster. And Mark [Burnett] will never, ever bet against Trump again."

Trump said with a laugh, "I want to just pray for Arnold if we can -- for those ratings."

Trump has come after Schwarzenegger before over the show's ratings. In January, after the show premiered with its new host, Trump tweeted, "Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got 'swamped' (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT."

Schwarzenegger responded by wishing Trump well in the presidency. "I hope you'll work for ALL of the American people as aggressively as you worked for your ratings," we wrote.

Trump and Schwarzenegger have had contentious relationship since the election. The former California governor announced that he would endorse Kasich in March 2016. Later in October, he said that he would "not vote for the Republican candidate" shortly after Trump's now-famous vulgar "Access Hollywood" tape made its rounds.
