We all know that newly elected President of the United States, Donald Trump loves to make headlines and the phrase “love him or hate him, but you can not just ignore him” fits in perfectly for him. This time Trump has made the headlines for taking a dig at the ‘Terminator’ actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Donald Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger had a spat on February 2 when the president used a prayer breakfast speech to taunt the action star about his reality show ratings, and Schwarzenegger gave a fitting reply in a video posted on Twitter.
Trump used the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington to call Schwarzenegger as “a total disaster” on “The New Celebrity Apprentice”.
“They hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place, and we know how that turned out,” Mr. Trump said, as Mark Burnett, the “Apprentice” creator who has become an active champion of Christian causes, listened a few feet away.
“The ratings went right down the tubes,” Mr. Trump continued. “Mark will never, ever bet against Trump again. And I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings.”
Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice…but at least he tried hard!

In response, the 69-year-old actor quickly shared a video online and suggested he and the president should “switch jobs”.

Schwarzenegger said, “Hey Donald, I have a great idea: Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV because you’re such an expert at ratings, and I take over your job, and then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”
“If I’d been born in America, I would’ve run. Because now? This was a very good time to get in the race”, he added.
