What Donald Trump's presidential campaign means for Celebrity Apprentice

Posted on

Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign Tuesday, which could mean he has a future as president of the U.S.—but  maybe not as host of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.

“We will re-evaluate Trump’s role as host of Celebrity Apprentice should it become necessary, as we are committed to this franchise,” NBC said in a statement.

Celebrity Apprentice premiered in 2008, four years after the original Apprentice—also hosted by Trump—made its 2004 debut. Since then, he’s hosted seven seasons of the show, including the one that aired this past January and February.
