Schwarzenegger trounces Trump in latest round of Twitter war

Published

on

Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday clapped back at Donald Trump, responding to the president’s early morning tweet that he did a “really bad job” as governor of California and as the new host of the Apprentice.

“Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice…but at least he tried hard!” Trump tweeted just before 6:30 a.m.

Friday afternoon, Schwarzenegger replied with a simple link the 2006 Los Angeles Daily News article about the movie star releasing his tax returns.

Trump is the first president in four decades to not release his tax returns; the tradition began with President Richard Nixon and continued with every subsequent president until Trump. The self-proclaimed billionaire promised throughout the campaign that he would release his tax returns once the government completes its yet-unproven audit against him. Last month, Trump adviser Kellyann Conway reneged on Trump’s campaign vow, telling ABC’s “This Week,” “he’s not going to release his tax returns.”

A feud erupted between the president and former governor of California on Thursday, when Trump asked the National Prayer Breakfast to pray for Schwarzenegger’s ratings on “Celebrity Apprentice.”

Responding to Trump, Schwarzenegger posted a video on Instagram yesterday offering to “switch jobs” with the president.

A spokesman for Schwarzenegger also issued a statement imploring Trump to take “his job seriously.”

“Arnold is praying that President Trump can start improving his own approval ratings, which were the worst in history for an incoming president,” Daniel Ketchell told ABC News.

The outcome is another major political loss for President Donald Trump, who had held multiple campaign rallies for Rispone.

During his most recent rally, Trump begged the crowd to give him a "big win" in the election.

Eddie Rispone has conceded the #lagov race to Gov. John Bel Edwards, giving the Democrat four more years in ruby red Louisiana despite Trump’s best efforts to flip the seat. Edwards camp says Rispone called minutes ago to concede. #lagov #lalege

Published

Press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Saturday argued it was "dangerous for the country" for anyone to challenge the veracity of her claims.

Grisham made her argument after President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed Hospital for an unannounced doctor's visit, resulting in a great deal of speculation.

Following the visit, Grisham claimed Trump was "healthy" and "without complaints" -- a claim many found unlikely as the president has spent a good deal of time as president airing his many grievances.
