Arnold Schwarzenegger may have taken over for President Donald Trump on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” but he isn’t standing up for the politician these days.
Arnold spoke out against President Trump’s executive order that temporarily restricts citizens from seven countries from entering the United States.
“I think the real problem is that it was vetted badly,” said the 69-year-old former California governor on Monday in an interview.
Schwarzenegger reportedly added while he understands the need to keep terrorists out of the United States, he believes there is a better ways to go about it, calling the order “hasty.”
Schwarzenegger, who arrived to the United States in 1968 at age 21, said he sympathized with those affected by the order.
“To go and ban people who have a green card, that means that the United States of America has given you permission to work here permanently and you are on the way to permanent citizenship… I was in that position,” said the fellow high-profiled Republican. “It’s crazy, it’s crazy and makes us look stupid when the White House is ill-prepared to put this kind of executive order out there.”
Trump administration said on Sunday that “green card holders and other legal permanent residents from the affected countries will be allowed into the United States.”
Trump has commented on Schwarzenegger’s criticism.
