Trump renews feud with Schwarzenegger: He 'bombed so badly on the Apprentice'

President Trump on Friday revived his feud with Arnold Schwarzenegger during a campaign-style speech in Pensacola, Florida.

The president covered a wide range of topics in his address, including Hillary Clinton, Roy Moore, North Korea, trade deals, and "Apprentice" ratings.

While talking about the inefficiencies at Veterans Affairs, Trump made an abrupt transition to take aim at Schwarzenegger.

"I can't believe that Arnold Schwarzenegger bombed so badly on 'The Apprentice,' my poor beautiful show," Trump said. "Oh, it was so successful. Get a big movie star and he can't pull it off."

From there, Trump moved on to "respecting American heroes" and "rebuilding America's standing."

The president's conflict with Schwarzenegger goes back months.

Back in March, Trump had tweeted, "Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't voluntarily leaving theApprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show."

In early February, while addressing attendees of the National Prayer Breakfast, Trump used part of his time at the podium to take another jab at Schwarzenegger.

"I want to just pray for Arnold if we can, for those ratings, OK?" the president said.

Schwarzenegger responded to those comments through a video, saying, "Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don't we switch jobs? You take over TV since you're such an expert on ratings and I take over your job and then people can finally sleep comfortably again."
