Not even the Terminator can save us from this election… but he totally would have under different circumstances!
Earlier this month, Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that he would NOT be voting for the Republican candidate for the first time since he became an American citizen back in 1983.
It's clear why the former California Governor won't be giving his vote to Donald Trump come Election Day — but if Arnie had it his way, there would be a MUCH better nominee on the GOP ticket this year… Arnold Schwarzenegger!

In a new interview with Adweek, the actor slash/ politician confessed that he would have definitely launched his own bid for the White House this year… if only he were born in the U.S.!
"If I'd been born in America, I would've run. Because now? This was a very good time to get in the race."
Seeing as how easily Trump managed to sweep the primaries, we'd have to agree!
The Hollywood legend and staunch Republican explained that his past as a bodybuilder has prepared him for life on the campaign trail — which has proven to be more difficult for some candidates.

The 69-year-old added:
"I realized 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?"
While we'll never know for sure what would have happened had Arnie joined the Presidential race… we have a feeling Hillary Clinton wouldn't trade her opponent for anyone right about now!
Would YOU vote for President Terminator??
