Arnold Schwarzenneger, who reacted to the Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki, Finland, attacked President Donald Trump saying he acted like a “fan boy” of Russian President Vladimir Putin in their “embarrassing” press conference.
The veteran movie star and former California Governor slammed Donald Trump in an Instagram video after the president held a press conference with Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki, Finland.
Arnold Schwarzenneger who said Donald Trump stood as a ‘wet noodle during the summit, added that Trump looked like he was going to ask Putin for an “autograph” or a “selfie”. He further said that Trump “sold out” his community, the justice system, and “worst of all, our country” during the press conference.
Here is what he wrote as he shared a video;
‘President Trump, I just saw your press conference with Putin and it was embarrassing. I mean, you stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fan boy, I mean… I was asking myself ”when are you going to ask him for an autograph or a selfie or something like that?” I mean, you literally sold out to 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?’
Before ending the video with an enormous, devastating sigh, Schwarzenegger makes reference to former president Ronald Reagan’s speech during the Cold War.
“Whatever happened to the strong words and the strength of Ronald Reagan when he stood there at the Berlin Wall and said ‘Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall’? What happened to all that?”
Arnold Schwarzenneger was not the only one who criticized the president’s performance in Helsinki. House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senator Lindsay Graham, Senator John McCain, and more conservative politicians, as well as several Fox News contributors, all reprimanded the president for taking Putin at his word regarding the election interference.
