The Hollywood actor, 69, was conclude via video stream to speak about his role hosting the multi-sports anniversary, The Arnold Classic, and clearly wasn’t in the mood to talk about his rivalry with the President of the United States.
Asked by Channel Ten’s The Project co-host Gorgi Coghlan if he regard Trump would last the four years of his presidency, the former Governor of California was able to shut her down – with a rather surreal response.
“The Arnold’s Standard will be here for four years, yes. It will be here for much longer. I imagine for the next 400 years you will see Arnold Classic in Melbourne,” he diverted.
That’s not to say Arnold didn’t commend the journalists on their attempt, as he later joked: “Good try!”
Arnold and Trump’s long-going rivalry appeared to have been ignited by the actor’s unveiling that he would not vote for the American businessman in the presidential election.
The Terminator the leading part – who served two terms as the Governor of California from 2003 to 2010 – maintained that he would take his vote elsewhere, despite having upheld for the Republican candidate in every election since he became an American city-dweller in 1983.
And their fall-out only escalated at the end of last year when Arnold succeeded Trump on US printing of The Celebrity Apprentice.
Taking a jab at Arnold in January, Trump mocked the present’s poor ratings and posted several tweets about the reality series.
Arnold later revealed he was out ofing down from the show because it came with too much “baggage”.
He suggested earlier this month: “With Trump being involved in the pose people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way to encouragement the show.”
