"And you got swamped", Schwarzenegger says with great delight. "Now you're in the thirties".
Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken the latest shot in the ongoing battle between himself and President Trump.
"But what do you expect?" he added.
Schwarzenegger went after Trump in a video posted on Schwarzenegger's Twitter account, including referencing recent news that Trump's approval rating had fallen into the 30s. The season's ratings were down almost 42 percent over its seven-week run, in comparison to the last season hosted by Trump. "America, tell it like it is: Donald, you're fired!" "You take over TV, because you're such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job".
Trump repeatedly called out Schwarzenegger for the program's "pathetic" ratings.
He invited the president to visit a Washington DC middle school with him to see "fantastic work" being done for children.
In the clip, the Terminator star blasted POTUS for getting "swamped" in the ratings - in which, according to a Gallup poll, showed 6 out of 10 respondents disapprove of the way Trump is handling his presidency. The once-and-future Expendable practically cackles over the fact that Trump's popularity could use some pumping up, but he also seems to realize that there's a lot at stake.
Earlier this month, Schwarzenegger announced that he would be leaving his hosting duties on the NBC reality series, on which Trump has remained an executive producer, due to the show's "baggage".
