Arnold Schwarzenegger has a theory about Trump: 'He's in love with me'

Arnold Schwarzenegger has a theory about why he’s getting under President Donald Trump’s skin.

In a recent interview on SiriusXM’s “The Michael Smerconish Program,” the former California governor and NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” host — who is leaving the show after one season, citting the “baggage” of his gig replacing Trump as host — was asked why he thinks Trump keeps tweeting about him.

“I think he’s in love with me,” Schwarzenegger told the show’s host.

“Is that what it is?” Smerconish asked.

“Yeah, I think so,” Schwarzenegger said.

And while Smerconish tried to get Schwarzenegger to elaborate on Trump, that was all the action star wanted to say on the matter.

Trump and the “Terminator” star have had a regular back-and-forth Twitter feud. After Schwarzenegger announced he was leaving “Celebrity Apprentice,” the president claimed over the weekend that Schwarzenegger was fired from the show for poor ratings. 
The president has gloated publicly about the show’s sinking viewership under Schwarzenegger.
