Arnold Schwarzenegger could be voting for a Democrat in 2020.
Appearing on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show” this week to promote the upcoming “Terminator: Dark Fate,” the former California governor was asked if he would support Donald Trump in 2020.
“I doubt it,” the 72-year-old actor said.
“I could [vote for Elizabeth Warren],” he then offered up.
“I would just have to see what her program is, what her vision is for the future of America, because I think the most important thing is we keep America number one,” he continued.
“I will find out what is happening on the Democratic side because I mean there’s a lot of weird stuff going on there,” Schwarzenegger added.
Considering Warren is presenting policies that will raise taxes on the middle class, it’s hard to see how she will “keep America number one.”
Schwarzenegger also opened up about his relationship with the president, someone he has openly feuded with for years.
“He and I used to be friends,” the “Conan the Barbarian” star said.
Schwarzenegger revealed Trump was supportive of him when he was running for California governor in 2003, but he wouldn’t take campaign donations from Trump because “the money came from gambling,” meaning Trump’s casinos.
As for Trump now, the actor said, “I couldn’t really go with him because of his philosophy about the environment and some of the other issues.”
“I told [Trump] before the election in 2016, I said, ‘Look, I would love to endorse you, but I can’t because I worked too hard on environmental issues and you tried to bring coal back,” he added. “This is like bringing Blockbusters back.'”
Schwarzenegger may be out trying to sell a movie, but he has had plenty to say about the president. In an interview with Men’s Health last month, he suggested that Trump is “in love” with him.
“I think he really — he’s in love with me,” the actor said.
“That’s the reality of it. With Trump, he wants to be me,” he added.
“I don’t think he fears me,” he continued. “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.”
President Trump mocked Schwarzenegger mainly in 2017 when the “Twins” actor took over hosting duties on his hit show “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Ratings slipped and the show was quickly filed away by NBC.
“Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the ‘Apprentice’ … but at least he tried hard!” the president tweeted at the time.
“Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t voluntarily leaving the ‘Apprentice,’ he was fired by his bad [pathetic] ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show,” he said in another tweet.
Considering Schwarzenegger took over Trump’s old gig and failed to fill the man’s shoes, his theory about who is “in love” with who may need to be flipped.
