Former California Governor and movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger has ripped into Trump’s failure to unequivocally condemn white supremacist groups.
“There are not two sides to bigotry, there are not two sides to hatred,” Schwarzenegger says in a video posted to Twitter by California-based ATTN: “If you choose to march with a flag that symbolizes the slaughter of millions of people, there are not two sides.”
The former Terminator then makes the sort of speech he says the U.S. president should have delivered. “The country that defeated Hitler’s army is no place for Nazi flags,” it goes.
Later in the clip, Schwarzenegger describes growing up in Austria shortly after the Second World War. He talks of Nazism as a losing, shameful ideology and of broken men “who came home from the war filled with shrapnel and guilt.”
