Arnold Schwarzenegger Wishes He Could Run For President Rather Than Donald Trump
Arnold Schwarzenegger - the former Governor of California, the former Mr. Universe and former Terminator - has admitted he would have loved to have taken on Donald Trump to be the Republican candidate if we were able to run.
However, sadly for Arnie, because he was born outside of the USA, in Austria, he is unable to become president. The 69-year-old has gone as far as to admit that getting into the Oval Office is his dream.
"If I'd been born in America, I would have run," he told Adweek. "Because now? This was a very good time to get in the race."

The ex-Kindergarten Cop has previously opened up about wanting to be president on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in 2010, and in 2013 it was reported that he wanted to get the law changed so he could run.
Despite being a lifelong Republican, he has also said that he would not be voting for Trump. Earlier this month, the man who was Mr Freeze (let's not mention that) released a statement on Twitter. It read: "For the first time since I became a citizen in 1983, I will not vote for the Republican candidate for president.
"Like many Americans, I've been conflicted by this election - I still haven't made up my mind about how exactly I will vote next month.
"I have been a proud Republican since I moved to America in 1968 and I heard Nixon's words about getting the government off our backs, free trade, and defending our liberty with a strong military.
"That day I joined the party of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan.
"But as proud as I am to label myself a Republican, there is one label that I hold above all else - American.
"So I want to take a moment today to remind my fellow Republicans that it is not only acceptable to choose your country over your party - it is your duty."
To add insult to injury The Governor will also be taking over the billionaire's role on The New Celebrity Apprentice in January.
