The former Governor of California and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has denounced Donald Trump over his handling of the election result where he has tried to overturn it in his favour.
Arnold Schwarzenegger calls Trump un-American crazy and evil: He said “There is no question about who won the presidential election and continuing this charade is stupid, crazy, and evil.” In a searing article he wrote for The Economist Schwarzenegger said that he has ‘deep concern’ for America which is a country that he fell in love with long before he was lucky enough to live there.
Speaking about his poor upbringing in postwar Austria he said “I grew up in the ruins of a country that gave up on democracy and faced the consequences. You may think I’m being overly sensitive about this – but when you’ve lived through the aftermath as I did, trust me, you worry.” He has slammed Trump’s attempt to get Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state, to find votes that would overturn the election result and praised Raffensperger as “a true hero for standing up to this un-American bulls**t”.
Drawing parallels from his film Judgement Day (1991) noting that the day electoral votes are counted will be “Judgement Day for a lot of politicians”. He asked “Will they choose to side with the voters, or will they choose to side with their party and their selfish president?” and added “For those in my party considering standing up against the voters on January 6th, know this: our grandchildren will know your names only as the villains who fought against the great American experiment and the will of the voters.
You will live in infamy.” He continued “We must never put our party above the great American experiment. We must never forget that we are Americans first. We must never forget that any power our politicians have comes from the voters, and they have spoken.”
