After previously sparring over ratings, the former governor of California and current Celebrity Apprentice host has some words for the former Celebrity Apprentice host and current President of the United States.
“I think the real problem is that it was vetted badly. If they would run this by the Justice Department and Homeland Security, and had the lawyers really study and focus on it and give it some time to do it the right way," he said, according to Variety.
“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. … 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,” he added.
Note: It's not the principle of discriminating by religion and national origin that Schwarzenegger calls out, but rather the "hasty" way in which the administration issued it.
Schwarzenegger himself is an immigrant from Austria, but was not subject to "extreme vetting," even though the Terminator is pretty scary.
But, coming from a non-Muslim Majority country, the Schwarzenegger has the freedom to travel. He knows that every time he leaves, he'll be back.
