Arnold Schwarzenegger offered Donald Trump some sage advice Thursday about his determination to “rescue the coal industry,” while simultaneously mocking the POTUS’ archaic ideas.

“I know you really want to be an action hero, right?” Schwarzenegger asked a Trump bobblehead in a video posted by Attn. He went on to question why the current administration attempts to rescue the coal industry, an energy source from the past which “is a threaten to future generations.”

“It is foolish to bring back laughable, outdated technology to suit your political agenda,” the “Governator” said. “I mean, what are you going to bring back next? Floppy disks? Fax machines? Beanie Babies? Beepers? Or Blockbuster?”

Schwarzenegger went on to say he gets why Trump wants to turn back the clock. “I mean, the ’80s were very good to both of us, right? But now you’re President of the United States, so it’s time to start looking to the future, instead of the past.”

President Trump was once the former California governor’s friend and political donor. But after Trump named the “Terminator” star as his replacement on “The Apprentice” (which was canceled shortly thereafter) but didn’t, in turn, get his endorsement in the presidential race, their friendship went downhill fast.

Watch the video below for Schwarzenegger’s advice to Trump on how to keep the coal miners employed.
