Arnold Schwarzenegger mocks Donald Trump over low approval ratings

Arnold Schwarzenegger mocked U.S. President Donald Trump’s low approval ratings on Tuesday as the pair’s Twitter feud continued.

Schwarzenegger challenged Trump to go to a Washington, D.C., middle school to see “the fantastic work” the after-school programs are doing.

This comes after Trump’s proposal to eliminate US$1.2 billion for after-school and summer programs.

“Oh, Donald, the ratings are in, and you got swamped,” Schwarzenegger said in a video posted to Twitter. “Wow. Now you’re in the thirties?”

“But what do you expect?” he added. “I mean, when you take away after-school programs from children and Meals on Wheels from the poor people, that’s not what you call ‘making America great again.'”

“I mean who is advising you?” Schwarzenegger said. “Let me give you some advice: Go to a middle school, to Hart Middle School right in Washington six miles away from the White House. I’ll take you there so you can see the fantastic work that they’re doing for these children.”

This Twitter video is the latest chapter in the ongoing feud between the pair.

Trump and Schwarzenegger have been warring on Twitter for months now, a battle of words that began when Schwarzenegger took over Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice hosting duties.

Trump continually jabbed at the show’s low ratings with Schwarzenegger as host, and the Terminator star would reply with measured digs about Trump’s leadership abilities and political approaches.

Schwarzenegger quit Celebrity Apprentice earlier this month, citing the “Trump baggage” as a major factor in his decision. He also said in an interview that he thinks Trump is “in love” with him.

Now, many political insiders are saying that Schwarzenegger is contemplating moving back into the political arena, and there is much insinuation that he’s doing it in response to Trump’s actions. The former A-list actor even began posting more politically focused tweets in the past few weeks.

Trump has yet to respond to Schwarzenegger’s most recent tweet directed at him.
