After the U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had the press conference at the Helsinki Summit, the former Republican governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a video message in which he criticized President Trump for his embarrassing performance.
The actor called POTUS ‘a fanboy’ of Russian President and that he looked like ‘a little wet noodle’ next to him.
“President Trump, I just saw your press conference with President Putin, and it was embarrassing. You stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fanboy. I was asking myself when you are going to ask him for an autograph or a selfie or something like that.” Schwarzenegger said in the Twitter video.
He accused the president of not representing the country as it is, and that he “literally sold out their intelligence community, justice system and country.”
“I mean, you literally sold out with this press conference, our intelligence community, our justice system, and, worst of all, our country. You’re the president of the United States. You shouldn’t do that. What’s the matter with you? I mean, whatever happened to the strong words or to the strength of Ronald Reagan? I mean, he stood there at the Berlin Wall and he said, ‘Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.’ What happened to all that?”
It is well known from the past that Schwarzenegger is not a big fan of the president. This is not the first time that he criticizes Trump over the videos, they had many public quarrels, but they rarely see eye-to-eye.
Last August, there was another video record by Schwarzenegger for Trump, after the president’s “two sides” statements in regards to the protest and violence in Charlottesville.
“There are not two sides to bigotry and there are not two sides to hatred,” he said. “And if you choose to march with a flag that symbolizes the slaughter of millions of people, there are not two sides to that. The only way to beat the loud, angry voices of hate is to meet them with louder, more reasonable voices.”
At the end of his video, the actor gestured and spoke sarcastically to a Trump bobblehead on his desk.
Last year in June, Schwarzenegger recorded a video and shared his concern about the president’s departure from Paris climate agreement. He asked Trump to choose the future and not to destroy energy revolution.
“One man cannot destroy our progress. One man can’t stop our clean energy revolution. And one man can’t go back in time — only I can do that.” alluding to his Terminator role.
He continued: “Please Mr. President, choose the future. No one remembers the people who told President Kennedy not to go to the moon. We remember the great leaders.”
Their verbal arguments and social media war started in January 2017, when Arnold Schwarzenegger took over Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice hosting duty.
Trump was accusing Schwarzenegger of the show’s low ratings as being a bad host. The actor was repaying with digs about Trump’s leadership abilities and politics.
One time POTUS wrote on his Twitter account:
“Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice…but at least he tried hard!”

Schwarzenegger quit Celebrity Apprentice in March. He said the “Trump baggage” was a major factor in his decision to quit.
Trump still hasn’t responded to Schwarzenegger’s latest video.
