Despite having once served as a Republican governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger has long been a harsh critic of former President Donald Trump.
However, that animosity did stop the Hollywood superstar from lashing out at Democrats during a recent interview.
According to Mediaite, Schwarzenegger was asked by fellow actor and podcast host Rob Lowe about what it means to be a Democrat.
"Ruin your cities," Schwarzenegger said in response. What's more, the longtime action legend didn't hold back after Lowe asked him to elaborate.
Rob Lowe asks Arnold Schwarzenegger what it means to be a Democrat:

"That’s what the Democrats would say. We are about ruining the cities. We want to f--k up every city in America. That seems to be the theme right now," he declared.
When Lowe asked possible motivation the Democratic Party might have for this course of action, Schwarzenegger admitted that he is perplexed, saying, "I have no idea."
Yet despite expressing disgust for Democratic policies, Schwarzenegger seems convinced that the party will prevail in next year's presidential election.
The Hill reported that Schwarzenegger told CNN host Chris Wallace during a June interview he doesn't think a Trump victory "is going to happen."
"I just don’t think that you get reelected with 30 percent or 33 percent of the people voting for you in your polls," Schwarzenegger insisted.
"I think those are great poll numbers amongst conservatives. But I think if you put it all together, it’s not enough. You need the swing voters. You need the independents, you need everybody to jump in there in order to win," he added.
Schwarzenegger also addressed allegations that Trump mishandled classified documents, stating, "If the charges are correct, he's going to be in deep trouble."

"But, at the same time I have to say that, you know, we are always innocent until proven guilty, so we will find out what the courts say in the future," he added.
