President Trump once again unloaded on nemisis Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday — and also took another shot at the "FAKE NEWS media."

One day after his "Celebrity Apprentice" successor suggested that he switch jobs with the President, Trump took aim on the Terminator's track record on TV and in politics.

"Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice ... but at least he tried hard!" the President tweeted early Friday morning.

Trump had ripped the "Celebrity Apprentice" ratings during the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday. That prompted Schwarzenegger to make a video response.

"Hey Donald, I have a great idea," Arnold said in the video that he tweeted. "Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and then I take over your job and then people can finally sleep comfortably again."

President Trump was busy once again on social media early Friday, also taking another opportunity to criticize the media while addressing the controversy concerning Australia.

"Thank you to Prime Minister of Australia for telling the truth about our very civil conversation that FAKE NEWS media lied about. Very nice!" Trump tweeted.

It was not immediately clear what Trump was complaining about. It was reported that Trump previously told Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over the phone that "this was the worst call by far" of his conversations with world leaders. Trump was unhappy about an Obama agreement to admit 1,250 refugees living off the coast of Australia, according to the Washington Post.

The President also tweeted early Friday that "Iran is playing with fire - they don't appreciate how 'kind' President Obama was to them. Not me!"
