- Schwarzenegger vs Trump continues
- The actor challenged the president to switch jobs after Trump mocked him over the low ratings of “”The Celebrity Apprentice”
- “You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job.” – Schwarzenegger
- He added that if this happens, the people can finally sleep comfortably again
Arnold Schwarzenegger took to social media to challenge US President Donald Trump to switch jobs.
On his Twitter account, the TV host-actor said: “Hey Donald, I have a great idea — why don’t we switch jobs?” You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job. And then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”
This action of Schwarzenegger came after Pres. Trump mocked him in front of lawmakers, foreign dignitaries and religious leaders during the National Prayer Breakfast; asking them to pray for the actor so that the ratings of his show, “The Celebrity Apprentice”, would go up.
Before Schwarzenegger, the newly-seated US president was the host of the popular reality show for several seasons.
Pres. Trump said that when he left the show in order to focus on his political career, NBC hired a ‘big, big movie star’ to replace him.
CNN quoted him as saying: “We know how that turned out. The ratings went right down the tubes. It has been a disaster. I want to just pray for Arnold … for those ratings.”
Trump vs Schwarzenegger
This is not the first time that Pres. Trump dissed Schwarzenegger for the low ratings of “The Celebrity Apprentice”.
Last January, he tweeted: “Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got ‘swamped’ (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for being a movie star-and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare him to my season 1. But who cares, he supported [John] Kasich & Hillary [Clinton].”
Schwarzenegger responded by saying that he’s hoping that the business magnate-turned president will work for all of the American people as aggressively as he worked for his ratings.
According to an article published by Rolling Stone, the actor opened up about his feud with Pres. Trump in the April issue of Men’s Journal, wherein he said in jest: “I called my assistant and said, ‘I think what we really should do is request a meeting and then we just smash his face into the table.'”
