Arnold Schwarzenegger talked about his war of words with Donald Trump with Van Jones' "Messy Truth" on CNN. The 69-year-old star believed that the President of the United States started attacking him when he learned that he didn't vote for him.
"I'm not a Trump Republican, that's why I didn't vote for him," the former governor of California said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The POTUS also mocked the actor's performance on "Celebrity Apprentice," but he said he is not bothered at all of his innuendos.
"I have thick skin; this doesn't bother me at all. It's very funny," Schwarzenegger insisted. "The Terminator" star revealed that one-third of the audience embargoed the show since he won the presidency.

He mocked the former television host's plans to "make America great again" by cutting $1.2 billion from the said project.
