Both Donald Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger are larger-than-life characters.
The former excelled in real estate, business, TV, and national politics. The latter soared to the highest peaks of bodybuilding, Hollywood, and state government.
But now, Arnie is claiming Trump is jealous of him.
From Daily Wire:
Even though Donald Trump rose to become the President of the United States, actor Arnold Schwarzenneger, who only served as governor of California, claims that the president secretly wants to be him, which would explain the feud brewing between them over the years.
Speaking with Men’s Health for October’s magazine issue, the 72-year-old star of “Terminator: Dark Fate” said that the president is “in love” with him.
“That’s the reality of it,” Schwarzenegger said. “With Trump, he wants to be me. I don’t think he fears me. But I remember that in the old days, when we went to the wrestling matches, the way he admired people with bodies, and the way they would jump around in the ring, and to perform physical stunts and stuff like that — he had great admiration for that.”
As noted by Fox News, the feud between Trump and Schwarzenegger developed shortly after the 2016 election when the action star was tapped to head “The Apprentice” in the real-estate mogul’s absence. As the show’s ratings quickly dwindled, Trump made sure to put the blame on Schwarzenegger.
Trump isn’t the type of guy to be jealous of any other person.
Vice versa, maybe?
