    Trump criticized a report that called into question his continuing role as executive producer of "The Apprentice," slamming it on Twitter as "rediculous."

    Donald Trump is tweeting about television again — this time accusing CNN of reporting "rediculous" fake news and asserting that he won't let his television show conflict with his presidency.

    Trump's Saturday morning tweets follow an announcement by Mark Burnett, the creator of "The Apprentice," that the president-elect remains an executive producer on the show.

    Trump's spokeswoman, Kellyanne Conway, said on CNN Friday that Trump's ties to his reality show are being reviewed for potential conflicts of interest.

    At 6:28 a.m. the president-elect said on Twitter that he had "NOTHING to do" with the show and that he will devote "ZERO TIME" to it.

    He also slammed the CNN report, which raised the possibility that he might be doing "double-duty" as both president of the United States and executive producer of his show. Trump misspelled the word "ridiculous" in his Tweet.

    He later deleted the tweet with the misspelled word, and posted a correction.
