The Terminator star was embroiled in a long-distance feud with the American businessman today after Trump mocked the action-hero during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast this morning.
After being introduced by Mike Burnett, who is the executive producer of the NBC show, the 70-year-old – who formerly fronted the reality series – took a swipe at the network and Schwarzenegger for plummeting ratings.
He boasted: "We had tremendous success on The Apprentice, and when I ran for president, I had to leave the show.

"That's when I knew for sure I was doing it. And 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 [Burnett] will never, ever bet against Trump again."
And 69-year-old Schwarzenegger wasn't prepared to let the comments slide and later took to Instagram with an offer for the US President.
"Hey Donald, I have a great idea why don't we switch jobs?" he began. "You take over TV because you're such an expert in ratings and I'll take over your job so that people can finally sleep comfortably again?"
