Schwarzenegger on Trump approval ratings: ‘You got swamped’
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Arnold Schwarzenegger is turning the table on Donald Trump by taking to social media to criticize the president’s own approval ratings.
Schwarzenegger posted a video on Twitter referencing a new Gallup poll that showed Trump’s approval rating at 39 percent, down 6 points from a week earlier. Schwarzenegger tells Trump, “The ratings are in and you got swamped.”

The action star and former California governor replaced Trump as the host of “Celebrity Apprentice,” and Trump repeatedly mocked him for poor television ratings. Schwarzenegger recently said he wouldn’t return to the show.
Wow, the ratings are in and Arnold Schwarzenegger got "swamped" (or destroyed) by comparison to the ratings machine, DJT. So much for….

Schwarzenegger also criticized Trump’s proposed budget cuts, including to after-school programs.
He invited Trump to visit a Washington, D.C., middle school with him to see “fantastic work” being done for children.
Schwarzenegger didn’t support Trump during his presidential run.
