Arnold wants to run for President


October 25, 2016

Arnold Schwarzenegger wishes he could have run for the US presidency.

The Terminator actor - who was governor of California for eight years until 2011 - is unable to contest for the position because he was born in Austria, but thinks it would have been the right time to campaign for the Republican candidacy if he'd been able to.

Arnold, who recently revealed he won't be voting for Republican Donald Trump, who is contesting for the commander-in-chief's role with Democrat Hillary Clinton - told Adweek magazine: "If I'd been born in America, I would've run. Because now? This was a very good time to get in the race."

But the 69-year-old star admitted he doesn't "love" politics. He added: "I didn't love politics, but I love policy."

The former Mr Universe credits his bodybuilding days for teaching him how to be memorable.

He said: "I realised early on in bodybuilding that you have to be able to sell yourself, your ideas, your position to the public. "You have to set yourself apart, whether it's policy or movies. How do you make them remember you?"
