Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger wishes he would have been able to run for the US presidency this year.
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 had been able to, reported Female First.
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, said, “If I’d been born in America, I would’ve run. Because now? This was a very good time to get in the race.”
As proud as I am to label myself a Republican, there is one label that I hold above all else - American. My full statement: pic.twitter.com/biRvY8S3aZ— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) October 8, 2016
But the 69-year-old star admitted he doesn’t “love” politics. “I didn’t love politics, but I love policy,” he said.
