'I Knew The Original Nazis': Arnold Tells Trump to Fully Reject White Supremacists
Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) posted a video directed at President Trump, as well as the neo-Nazi factions who violently rioted in Virginia.
Schwarzenegger told Trump that he has a "moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that [he] won't stand for hate and racism."
He said that Trump should have and should still come out and condemn by name the white supremacist factions in Charlottesville.
"If you choose to march with a flag that symbolized the slaughter of millions of people, there aren't two sides to that," he said, dismissing Trump's claim that some right-wing demonstrators were valid participants.
"I was born in Austria in 1947, shortly after the Second World War," Schwarzenegger continued.
"Growing up I was surrounded by broken men, filled with shrapnel and guilt who were misled into a losing ideology [of Adolf Hitler]."
Schwarzenegger said that similarly, those who see the Confederate flag as a symbol of Southern pride are celebrating "losers."
He said that both those who fought with Germany and those who fought with the South "spent the rest of their lives living in shame and right now [are] resting in Hell."
Schwarzenegger told Trump that America, as the victor in World War II, is "no place for Nazi flags."
He offered Trump a literal message to present publicly as a way to make up for his prior remarks this week.
Schwarzenegger also addressed the protesters, saying they must "zap the [expletive] out of" the "cancer" that is white supremacy and neo-Nazism.
"You're lucky to live in a country that gives you every right to say horrible things," Schwarzenegger said.
