There’s one topic off limits when interviewing Arnold Schwarzenegger: Donald Trump.

The former Governor of California walked off-set during an interview on Australia’s “Weekend Sunrise” program Saturday morning after being asked to opine on possible Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“This is an interview that I only do about fitness and health, not about politics or my relationships,”Schwarzenegger told host Angela Cox before ending the interview.

Schwarzenegger is currently in Australia to promote a series of fitness events, including the Arnold World Strongman Championships.

It’s understandable why a journalist would be interested in Arnold’s thoughts on Trump. Like Trump, Schwarzenegger is an entertainment personality-turned-Republican politician, and was also named as Trump’s replacement on “The Celebrity Apprentice” in September 2015.

Schwarzenegger endorsed Republican candidate and Ohio Governor John Kashich earlier this month.

Earlier in the interview, Cox had asked Schwarzenegger about his failed marriage to Maria Shriver. In 2011, it was revealed that he had fathered a child with the couple’s housekeeper.

When asked how having that news made public changed his life, Schwarzenegger refused to answer.

“Well, the important thing is that I continue with my work, and health and fitness is what really counts for me.”

Schwarzenegger’s team maintains that he didn’t storm out of the interview, but rather that Cox had surpassed her allotted time.

“The journalist [Cox] was allocated five minutes and we ran over time, so we cut the interview short,” Schwarzenegger’s Australian publicist, Max Markson, said. “I think she’s just trying to make a name for herself. She’s new on the show. Her line of questioning was inappropriate.”
