Arnold Schwarzenegger Says ‘I’m Still Here’ After Donald Trump Said He Had ‘Died’
While speaking at a social media summit at the White House on Thursday, Trump declared the governor dead, even though the, now politician, is still very much alive.
“Arnold Schwarzenegger… You know what? He died… I was there,” Trump told the press, according to Yahoo News White House correspondent Hunter Walker.
Schwarzenegger spotted the tweets and responded with his own job, tweeting, “I’m still here. Want to compare tax returns, @realDonalTrump?”

The knock at Schwarzenegger is the latest in an ongoing feud between the two celebrities-turned- politicians about the NBC reality series.
The former governor of California said in 2017 that he would step down as host because of the “baggage” brought with Trump’s association.
“I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone – from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department- was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn’t have this baggage,” he told Variety at the time.
“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.
