Actor turned activist Tom Arnold is ‘not afraid of dying’ in his quest to bring down President Donald Trump with his highly anticipated new TV series – The Hunt for the Trump Tapes.
The True Lies star, and former husband of controversial Trump supporting actress and comedienne Roseanne Barr, says former friend Trump will resign once he collates more evidence of his alleged wrong doing.
And Arnold, 59, tells DailyMailTV that he will not be put off by the menace of multi-million dollar lawsuits and death threats.
Equally, he’s not concerned that his Vice TV series could cause damage to his image, because, he says, ‘I have a terrible reputation.’
The explosive upcoming show, which premieres on Tuesday, led to a fight after Arnold claims Apprentice producer Mark Burnett choked him at an Emmy party in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
Arnold had been chasing Burnett for months in attempt to get tapes that he believes show Trump making racial and derogatory comments while filming The Apprentice.
‘Mark Burnett just went apes** & choked me at this huge Emmy party then he ran away with his torn Pink shirt & missing gold chain. I’m waiting for LAPD,’ wrote Arnold on Twitter after the fight.
Multiple people who witnessed the fight told DailyMail.com that the two men were shoving one another but it was unclear who was started the altercation.
Speaking to DailyMailTV in the days before the fight, Arnold said he wasn’t concerned for his safety ‘because the people who get scared – they’ve quit. I’ll quit when it’s over. No, I’m not scared about my welfare.
‘That’s what they do. They threaten to sue you, kill you, or ruin your reputation, which I have a terrible reputation, no money, and I’m not afraid of dying, obviously.
‘So when Trump resigns, which will be soon, then I’ll take it easy.’
Arnold’s show, which follows his quest to find tapes of Trump using the N-word will also include interviews with Russian prostitutes linked to the infamous dossier by English spy Christopher Steele alleging unusual sex acts.
Speaking at TV Legend Ed Asner’s 6th Annual Celebrity Poker Tournament raising funds for autism, in Los Angeles, Arnold added that Trump is ‘out of his freaking mind’ and that he can’t wait to show the world his findings on TV.
