Arnold Schwarzenegger criticized just how badly the Trump White House handled the executive order on immigration that led to massive outcry and protests this past weekend.
The Celebrity Apprentice host told Mario Lopez that the order from Donald Trump––still credited as an executive producer on his show––was “vetted badly.”
He understands the problem the White House is trying to address but thinks “there is another way to going about it to do it the right way and accomplish all of the goals. I think they were hasty with it.”
Schwarzenegger said the haphazard implementation “makes us look stupid”:
“To go and to ban people that have a green card––that means that the United States of America has given you permission to work here permanently in this country 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 these kind of executive orders out there.”
Schwarzenegger added that he hopes this is a “wake-up call” for the White House to address the issue and to be more inclusive and willing to work with the other side going forward.
