Actor turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger is ‘dead’ according to claims by US President Donald Trump. The strange claim by Donald Trump came on Thursday at the “social media summit” at the White House. “Arnold Schwarzenegger … You know what? He died … I was there,” Trump told the press, according to Yahoo News White correspondent Hunter Walker.

“The president was talking about Apprentice ratings when he quipped that Schwarzenegger ‘died.’ Real life and death stuff,” Walker clarified in another tweet.

After Yahoo News’ White House correspondent Hunter Walker quoted Trump’s Schwarzenegger-bashing remarks on Twitter, the former California governor offered a pithy reply that he is still very much alive.
“I’m still here. Want to compare tax returns, @realDonaldTrump ?” Schwarzenegger, 71 replied hinting at the president’s still-hidden tax returns.
The ongoing feud between Arnold and Trump dates way back in 2016 when NBC cancelled the show after the “Terminator” star’s single season, “I was there.” The feud grew tangier when the former governor of California said in 2017 that he would step down as host because of the “baggage” brought with Trump’s association.
