With President Trump now a few months into his first term, a Gallup poll recently revealed the president’s approval ratings.

With the news of his low rating, bodybuilder turned actor turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger unsurprisingly addressed the ratings in a public video tweet.

While it appears to begin as another insulting video, Schwarzenegger makes a sudden shift.
After the actor called out Trump for taking away “after school programs from children,” he says:
“Who’s advising you?”
“Let me give you some advice.”
He surprisingly offers to go with Trump to a middle school so the two can work together:
“Go to a middle school, the Hart Middle School in Washington, six miles away from the White House.”
“I’ll take you there so you can see the fantastic work they’re doing for their children.”
He finishes off the video with an encouraging:
“Let’s do it.”

Schwarzenegger even captioned the tweet:
“I have some advice. See you at Hart Middle School?”
While Trump’s numbers are the lowest since he took office, he still does not rank amongst the lowest approval ratings.
- 1.) Harry Truman: February 1952 – 22% Approval Rating
- 2.) Richard Nixon: July 1974 – 24% Approval Rating
- 3.) George W. Bush: October 2008 – 25% Approval Rating
- 4.) Jimmy Carter: June 1979 – 28% Approval Rating
- 5.) George H. W. Bush Average: July 1992 – 29% Approval Rating
And here are the five highest approval ratings:
- 1.) George W. Bush Average: September 2001 – 90% Approval Rating
- 2.) George H. W. Bush Average: February 1991 – 89% Approval Rating
- 3.) Harry Truman Average: June 1945 – 87% Approval Rating
- 4.) John F. Kennedy Average: April 1961 – 83% Approval Rating
- 5.) Lyndon Johnson Average: February 1964 – 79% Approval Rating
President Trump has yet to respond to Schwarzenegger’s offer, but could this be the beginning of a beautiful friendship?
