Arnold Schwarzenegger slams Trump over Putin meeting
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who briefly took over as host of "Celebrity Apprentice," unleashed a scathing attack on U.S. President Donald Trump following the politician's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The world leaders took part in a news conference following a summit in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday, in which Trump sided with the Russian leader as he denied claims made by U.S. intelligence that he interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
Schwarzenegger took to Twitter with a 45-second video in which he blasted the U.S. President for acting like a "wet noodle" and putting on an "embarrassing" front.
"President Trump, I just saw your press conference with President Putin and it was embarrassing," an unshaven Arnold, 70, begins in the footage. "I mean you stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fan boy. I mean, I was asking myself, when you gonna ask him for an autograph or for a selfie or something like that?"
The politician-turned-actor went on to say the President had "sold out" the country and referenced the contrasting leadership of former President Ronald Reagan, whose rousing speech to Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev contributed to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
"You literally sold out at this press conference our intelligence community, our justice system, and worst of all, our country," the "Terminator" actor continued. "You're the President of the United States, you shouldn't do that and what's the matter with you?
Arnold ended the video, which has been watched nearly 800,000 times, with a long sigh and a shake of his head.
The two men have feuded in the past with Trump lashing out at Schwarzenegger for "bombing" on "Celebrity Apprentice" and Schwarzenegger regularly criticizing Trump's policies.
He joins a roster of Hollywood celebrities taking a stand against the controversial president.
