It is not the first time that the president has clashed with Schwarzenegger, who endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich during the Republican primary and refused to back Trump during the general election. Early last month, Trump attacked his “Apprentice” replacement’s ratings in a series of posts to Twitter, to which Schwarzenegger responded by tweeting ““There's nothing more important than the people's work, @realDonaldTrump.”
More recently, Schwarzenegger was critical of Trump’s executive order temporarily banning travelers from certain majority-Muslim nations from entering the U.S. and stopping indefinitely the flow of refugees from Syria. The former California governor said the order “was vetted badly” and that “there is another way of going about it to do it the right way and to accomplish still all the same goals. And so I think that they were hasty with it.”
Right before he called out Arnold Schwarnegger he told somebody else their job was safe- ugh. TMZ again.
Schwarzenegger, a former governor of California who earned fame for his action movie roles, was hired to replace Trump as host of "The Celebrity Apprentice." The president is still listed as executive producer of the show.
A spokesman for Schwarzenegger fired back at Trump this morning.
"Arnold is praying that President Trump can start improving his own approval ratings, which were the worst in history for an incoming president, by taking his job seriously and working inclusively," Daniel Ketchell, the spokesman, told ABC News.
Schwarzenegger assailed Trump in a video posted to his social media accounts.
"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. Then people can finally sleep comfortably again," he said in the video.
Geez, imagine this being done at your local church. I am, obviously, not a church person, but surely some big tender-ego'ed reality tv show mogul crowing about his ratings on a teevee show and then trashing the person that took it over, all while invoking the audience to pray to God for ratings, seems a little golden-calfy, yes?

... "You have a bunch of bad hombres down there," Trump told Pena Nieto, according to the excerpt seen by the AP. "You aren't doing enough to stop them.I think your military is scared.Our military isn't, so I just might send them down to take care of it."
Let's say that somehow he meant that as a light hearted joke. No, let's not say that.
"Trump's behavior suggests that he is capable of subjecting world leaders, including close allies, to a version of the vitriol he frequently employs against political adversaries and news organizations in speeches and on Twitter.
"US officials said that Trump has behaved similarly in conversations with leaders of other countries, including Mexico. But his treatment of Turnbull was particularly striking because of the tight bond between the United States and Australia — countries that share intelligence, support one another diplomatically and have fought together in wars including in Iraq and Afghanistan.
"The characterizations provide insight into Trump's temperament and approach to the diplomatic requirements of his job as the nation's chief executive, a role in which he continues to employ both the uncompromising negotiating tactics he honed as a real estate developer and the bombastic style he exhibited as a reality television personality.
"The depictions of Trump's calls are also at odds with sanitized White House accounts. The official read-out of his conversation with Turnbull, for example, said that the two had 'emphasized the enduring strength and closeness of the U.S.-Australia relationship that is critical for peace, stability, and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region and globally.'"
