In an obvious snub to Donald Trump, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has cast his primary vote for John Kasich.

The Los Angeles Times reported Schwarzenegger voted for the Ohio governor in a mail-in ballot in advance of the Tuesday primary. Kasich had dropped out of the presidential race in May.

The Times said both Schwarzenegger and Kasich have been close for years. Schwarzenegger holds his Arnold Classic bodybuilding competition in Kasich’s home state of Ohio.

Ironically, the former California governor and one-time movie star, replaced Trump as host of TV’s Celebrity Apprentice, but has publicly avoided discussing the presidential candidate, the Times noted.

Schwarzenegger had endorsed Kasich’s bid for the nomination earlier this year and has done his best to dodge questions about Trump, the Sacramento Bee newspaper in California reported.

Asked if he was comfortable with Trump leading the Republican Party, the newspaper reported Schwarzenegger said he will always be a Republican, "but what is more important about it is not what do I think about Donald Trump. We have to talk about the bigger issue. And this is what do the people really feel."
