In April, Schwarzenegger criticized Trump’s proposed cuts to children’s services, specifically after school programs. The former governor accused the president of balancing the budget on the backs children.
“Kids are the most vulnerable citizens. Kids are our future,” he said at the time.
In August, Arnold took Donald to task in a video criticizing Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and his lack of condemnation of “Neo-Nazis, the White Nationalists and the neo-Confederates”.
Schwarzenegger also blasted Trump’s leadership skills, his proposal to cut funding for Meals on Wheels and his low approval ratings, among other things.
Trump, displeased by Schwarzenegger’s vote for Ohio Governor John Kasich in the primaries even after Kasich dropped out, criticizes Schwarzenegger mainly for his low ratings on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice…but at least he tried hard!
