Trump’s name appeared in the credits of the show as "Executive Producer Donald J. Trump," according to a CNBC employee. Variety also reported that Trump remains a credited executive producer.


Monday's season premiere featured actor and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R), who replaced Trump as host of the show.

Trump's role in the show has been the subject of some debate following his election in November.

Trump said last month that he would have "zero time" devoted to “Celebrity Apprentice.”

“I have NOTHING to do with The Apprentice except for the fact that I conceived it with Mark B & have a big stake in it. Will devote ZERO TIME!” he tweeted.

Earlier in December, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway revealed the president-elect would keep an executive producer credit on the show.

She later attempted to walk back the statements after Trump’s tweet, saying she was “just kidding” about Trump spending any time on the show.
