2yr old petrified of getting nails trimmed...especially feet!

My 2 year old son is absolutely terrified of getting his nails trimmed. He has never been cut and I let him hold the clippers before I trim his nails so he knows what they are. It isn't until I grab his hand or foot that he will start screaming and flailing his body around. It typically takes me around 20mins as I have to wrestle him while I'm trying to trim his nails. It literally takes all my body weight (5' 6" & 140#) to restrain my son (3' 2" & 34#). What is he scared of? How can I get him to stop?
