Both NBC and Miss Universe are washing their hands clean of Donald Trump.
Monday, Trump sold Miss Universe to the WME/IMG agency — the same agency that just rebranded New York Fashion Week after losing its title sponsor, Mercedes-Benz. (Video via Miss Universe Organization)
The acquisition is rather sudden, though, seeing as how the Donald purchased NBC's half of the organization in order to fully own Miss Universe a few days ago.
Trump says the purchase also settled the legal disputes he had with the media conglomerate.
Now, Trump didn't leave the show on bad terms — he had to leave because of the presidential race. If he had stayed on as host, the FCC could rule that NBC was unfairly giving more air time to a political candidate. (Video via Donald Trump)
But NBC announced Monday it had found a replacement, and we'll give you a hint: "I'll be back."
Obviously, Schwarzenegger is one of the biggest stars in the world — and a former governor — so he will definitely bring something unique to the series. (Video via Omaze)

Before this past season (season 7), the show hadn't been on air since spring 2013. But even with that gap, interest for the reality show was still high. One episode last season had the highest rating for the show since May 2012. (Video via NBC / "The Celebrity Apprentice")
We think Schwarzenegger will do just fine. So Trump, you're fired — for now.
