Bodybuilder turned actor turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger touched down at the Alamodome for Alamo City Comic Con, and he has a message for San Antonio.
On Sunday night, Mayor Ron Nirenberg was able to catch up with Schwarzenegger and managed to get the Terminator to give a shoutout to San Antonio.

Schwarzenegger donned a cowboy hat for the video, wishing San Antonio a happy birthday.

"300 years, that is unbelievable," he said. "This is much older than the United States."

Schwarzenegger called San Antonio a "fantastic city" and said "everything [is] great." He noted a "great after-school program," which is the After-School All-Stars program that he founded.

The Terminator actor even included his character's famous "Hasta la vista, baby" line.
