In a Saturday morning Twitter post, President Trump shot down a report  that he is talking to “Apprentice” creator Mark Burnett about starting up a new reality TV show, saying the whole story is completely false.

The Daily Beast published a report on Thursday with the following claim:

According to three people with knowledge of the situation and another source close to Trump, Apprentice creator Mark Burnett and the president have sporadically kept in touch, mostly over the phone, since Trump won the election. The pair remain friends, these sources say, and have discussed reviving their creative partnership, pitching each other details on potential TV projects to be filmed after the Trump presidency.

The president responded with the following:

Fake News is reporting that I am talking to Mark Burnett about doing a big show, perhaps The Apprentice, after the presidency, which I would assume they mean in 5 years. This is not true, never had such a conversation, don’t even have time to think about it. False reporting!
