Arnold Schwarzenegger may be a Republican, but the former California governor and actor is no fan of President Donald Trump.

The two have had their beefs in the past. For one, Schwarzenegger refused to endorse Trump for president in 2016 and implored voters to "choose country over party." And years later, he replaced Trump as the host for the president's reality show The Celebrity Apprentice.
