The former “Terminator” star, who died on Sunday at age 74, told the Los Angeles Times he isn’t running for president in 2020 and is “not looking to run again.”
Schwarzinger also told the paper that he plans to continue living a “very normal life” and said he would have “no regrets” about his time on the big screen.
But the Oscar-winning actor, who was a leading man in his own right, said he didn’t think he’d be able to take on Trump.
Schwarzelenegger, who starred in “The Terminator,” said he thinks Trump would “kill” Arnold, but that he doesn’t think Trump would do anything to hurt Arnold.
“I think he would kill him, but I don’t think that would happen,” he said.
“If anything, he’d just be a hero.”
Schwartzenegger said he’s not interested in running for the presidency because he wants to “be a normal guy” in his life, according to the Times.
“It’s hard for me to say no to someone who has always been very open about his feelings about Donald Trump,” he told the newspaper.
Schwzenegger also said he doesn “not want to be a distraction.”
“I’m not a distraction.
I want to do my own thing,” he added.
Schwitzenegger, a longtime supporter of the Clintons, made the comments while talking about the Clinton Foundation during a meeting with the Times on Tuesday.
SchWARZELBERG: I have to be careful of my words.
But I’m no longer looking for a job.
I’m a man of my word.
The more I do, the more I feel that way.
So I’m going to take the time to enjoy what I’ve got, which is the world.
“And then I’ll be happy,” he concluded.
