Comedian Tom Arnold said he is angling to "keep pressure" on President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump takes shot at new GOP candidate in Ohio over Cleveland nickname GOP political operatives indicted over illegal campaign contribution from Russian national in 2016 On The Money — Dems dare GOP to vote for shutdown, default MORE in an effort to get the real estate mogul to resign the presidency "before he really destroys" it or the country.

“My goal is for Donald Trump to resign before he really destroys — you know, to keep pressure on him," Arnold told Politico's "Off Message" podcast. "And I think that you will see that, as shocking as it is, that I am keeping pressure on him."

Arnold, the ex-husband of actress and outspoken Trump supporter Roseanne Barr, is on a self-described mission to hunt down allegedly incriminating tapes of Trump. That mission is the subject of an upcoming Viceland show, "The Hunt for the Trump Tapes."


Arnold told Politico that he's hoping to use behind-the-scenes footage of Trump during his tenure on NBC's "The Apprentice" to offer a glimpse to the American public of who the president is behind the scenes.

"My whole goal, really, is to get one 12-hour day of the boardrooms shoot," Arnold said. "Because if America could see that, they’d know what’s going on in the White House right now, how incompetent the guy is. That’s really my goal."

"It’s not to hear one N-word," he continued. "And by the way, you’d hear much worse than that."

Last month, Arnold posted a photo on Twitter of himself posing with Trump's embattled personal attorney Michael Cohen. He later told NBC News that the two talked about his upcoming Viceland show.

Cohen denied that he and Arnold discussed his appearance on the show or anything regarding Trump. But Arnold told NBC News that the two men are now "on the same side."

"We’ve been on the other side of the table and now we’re on the same side," he said.

Cohen is under intense legal scrutiny by federal investigators examining his business dealings, including a $130,000 payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels, which was intended to buy her silence about an alleged affair with Trump years ago.
