President Donald Trump’s verbal feud with top Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger is not over yet.

Trump once again took to his cyber weapon Twitter today to attack Schwarzenegger who had offered a piece of advice to Trump who has crossed all limits of incivility.

Trump who still has an extreme infatuation for his reality TV show Apprentice (“The New Celebrity Apprentice”) had insulted Schwarzenegger – who has replaced Trump in the show – by saying that the show ratings have fallen drastically.

Worse, Trump used the National Prayer Breakfast occasion in Washington on Thursday for self-praise and to rebuke the actor, “…a total disaster,” Trump said.

In response, Schwarzenegger posted a video on his own Twitter account to hit back. “Hey Donald, I have a great idea — why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job. Then people can finally sleep comfortably again,” Schwarzenegger – who also was the Governor of California from 2003 to 2011 – said in his video message.

But since Trump is a quarrelsome character, he again came back to Twitter today to retort. “Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice…but at least he tried hard!” Trump said in his tweet with the usual exclamation mark at the end.

Trump is using Twitter in a free-wheeling manner to offend different people all across the world. A few days ago, for example, he had hit Hollywood actress Meryl Streep with his haughty remarks, saying she is an over-rated actress.

Ms. Streep said it is not appropriate for a man who is going to occupy the highest position in the country to bully others who cannot match his rank. She also appealed the Hollywood fraternity to save the press, which is also under attack from Trump.

Trump has displayed his thin skin multiple times before in his tweets attacking women, journalists, opposition leaders, and even his own colleagues in the Republican Party.

His speeches and tweets are often full of vulgar words such as “sleaze,” “stupid,” “goofy,” “crooked,” “liar,” “low life,” “bimbo,” and so on.

His tweets particularly are so offensive that American voters, especially young voters, said in a new survey that Trump should close his personal Twitter account. Alternatively, Twitter should suspend his account putting him in the category of uncultured trolls.

Although Trump has managed to attract voters with his sensational rhetoric, most believe he is not fit to become the President because of his uncivil language and unstable thoughts.
