Former California governor and erstwhile “Apprentice” host Arnold Schwarzenegger met up with French President Emmanuel Macron Friday to take a video trolling President Donald Trump.

“I’m here with President Macron, we’re talking about environmental issues and a green future,” Schwarzenegger said in the short Twitter video, shot at Elysee Palace in Paris.

“And now we will deliver together to make the planet great again,” Macron said, an apparent reference to Trump’s Make America Great Again slogan.

Scharzenegger said he was honored to meet Macron, adding that “he’s a great leader” in his post.

Macron doubled down on his spin on Trump’s slogan in his own tweet, where he used the hashtag #MakeOurPlanetGreatAgain.

Schwarzenegger received France’s Legion of Honor, the country’s highest award, in April for his work on the environment. Schwarzenegger has criticized Trump’s plan to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords. (RELATED: Arnold Schwarzenegger Wanted To ‘Smash Trump’s Face In’ After Criticism Of Low ‘Apprentice’ Ratings)

“We have seven million people die every year because of pollution,” Schwarzenegger said after receiving his award. “This is why it is so important that we go and reduce the g gasses and reduce the pollution. We can do it because it is man made. We created the mess, and now we have to get rid of the mess.”
