Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 android might've declared, "I'll be back" in 'The Terminator' movie, but the actor himself is now ruling out a dramatic return to politics.
There's been much speculation recently that the Austrian-born actor was planning to re-enter the political fray and run again for the Senate, but Schwarzenegger took to Facebook last night to once and for all put these rumours to bed.
"I'm deeply flattered by all of the people who have approached me about running for Senate, but my mission right now is to bring sanity to Washington through redistricting reform like we passed here in California," he wrote.
"Gerrymandering has completely broken our political system and I believe my best platform to help repair it is from the outside, by campaigning for independent redistricting commissions. Thank you for your kind messages and all of the support and I hope you'll join me in my battle against gerrymandering with the same enthusiasm."
The actor also recently announced that he wouldn't be returning to the TV show 'The Apprentice' for another season, after the show's ratings took a terrible trashing.
"I learned a lot, I had a great time, it was a really great opportunity. But under the circumstances I don’t want to do it again," he told 'Empire' magazine.
He replaced Donald Trump as the show's presenter and the new US President was quick to poke fun at 'The Terminator' actor over The Apprentice's falling ratings.
At a prayer meeting, President Donald Trump said: "When I ran for president, I had to leave the show. They hired a big, big movie star, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to take my place. And we know how that turned out. The ratings went right down the tubes. It’s been a total disaster, and Mark will never, ever bet against Trump again.
"I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can."This prompted Schwarzenegger to declare at the time that would like to take a pop at the US President and “smash his face into the table”!
After US President made his bizarre comments about the drop in the show’s ratings, Schwarzenegger said in an interview with Men’s Journal: “I called my assistant and said, ‘I think what we really should do is request a meeting and go back to New York – and then we just smash his face into the table."
He then insisted that he was joking, adding: “I think we can’t do that, either. I think I have to be above all of that and put him on the spot."
But the ex-Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger then took to Instagram to have another pop at Trump, saying: “Hey Donald, I have a great idea – why don’t we switch jobs? And then people can finally sleep comfortably again.”
