Arnold Schwarzenegger ramped up his feud with President TrumpDonald John TrumpDeWine tests negative for coronavirus a second time Several GOP lawmakers express concern over Trump executive orders Beirut aftermath poses test for US aid to frustrating ally MORE Tuesday morning with a 40-second video knocking Trump's approval ratings and his budget proposal.

"Oh, Donald — the ratings are in, and you got swamped," Schwarzenegger says in the video. "Wow. Now you're in the 30s?"

"But what do you expect? I mean, when you take away after-school programs for children and Meals on Wheels for the poor people, that's not what you call 'making America great again.' Come on!" Schwarzenegger continued.

A Gallup poll released earlier this week shows Trump's approval rating has dropped to a new low of 37 percent. Almost 6 in 10 respondents, 58 percent, disapprove of the way Trump is handling his presidency.


Schwarzenegger, wearing a USA T-shirt in the video, also knocked Trump's recently proposed budget plan, which would get rid of programs including Meals on Wheels and those created by the National Endowment of the Arts and Humanities.

"I mean who is advising you?" Schwarzenegger asked. "Let me give you some advice: Go to a middle school, to Hart Middle School right in Washington, six miles away from the White House. I'll take you there so you can see the fantastic work that they're doing for these children."

Schwarzenegger has championed the importance of federal funding for after-school programs in the past and helped create after-school programs while serving as governor of California. 

In 2013, Schwarzenegger came to D.C. and met with lawmakers at the Capitol to discuss such after school-programs. He visited several local middle schools during that trip.
