JOHANNESBURG – US President Donald Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger were embroiled in a dispute on Thursday after the president used a prayer breakfast speech to taunt the action star about his reality show ratings, and Schwarzenegger fired back in a video posted on Twitter.

In a video, Schwarzenegger challenges Trump to switch jobs.

“Why don’t you take over TV since you are such an expert at ratings and I take over your job and people can finally sleep comfortably again.”

The twar began when the president used the National Prayer Breakfast to condemn Schwarzenegger as “a total disaster” on The New Celebrity Apprentice.

Trump and Schwarzenegger have been political rivals since the early days of the 2016 election, when the actor and former California governor endorsed John Kasich to be president.
