Arnold Schwarzenegger hilariously trolls Trump

Ever since Arnold hosted the show, Trump started taking digs at his successor. The former US President was so invested in the supposed rivalry that he took shots at Arnold while serving as the President. But ‘The Terminator’ never backed down from confrontation and always went toe-to-toe with his critique.

Despite not having held a public office since 2011, Arnold has been a primary figure in politics, thanks to the efforts of Donald. Trump has never passed an opportunity to publicly mock Arnold’s stint as the host of ‘Apprentice.’

Talking about why Trump cannot let go of the issue, Arnold said, “I think he really—he’s in love with me. That’s the reality of it. With Trump, he wants to be me.” Talking further about if Trump fears him or not, Schwarzenegger said, “I don’t think he fears me.”

Arnold has always been witty with his replies to Trump, and he always comes up with various ways to give a fitting reply. Schwarzenegger once uploaded a video with a link attached to a public school near the White House for Trump to go to. Or when Trump denied showing his tax returns, Arnold once again called him out on social media to compare each of their tax returns.

However hard it may be to believe, it is indeed true. Arnold and Donald weren’t always at each other’s throats. The two entrepreneur-politicians used to be good friends and often spent time with each other. They visited wrestling matches together, and Trump had great admiration for the wrestlers. The way they would jump around in the ring and their perfect physique and showmanship inspired Trump.

Not only that, but he would also ask Arnold questions about being an actor. He would ask Arnold how he did stunts and other aspects of a movie to make them so believable. Trump would get specific questions about that fascinated him. ,How do you go and act out a scene so that I get affected emotionally?” was one of the many questions Trump would ask Arnold.
