‘Stop whining,’ Schwarzenegger tells people still angry at Trump
Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared to resume his “Kindergarten Cop” role while chastising President-elect Donald Trump’s critics.
NBC’s Matt Lauer sat down with Mr. Schwarzenegger for a “Today” show interview that touched on everything from his new role as host of “Celebrity Apprentice” to American voters still angry at Mr. Trump’s win.
The former Republican governor of California — who did not vote for Mr. Trump — had a message for the billionaire’s critics: “Stop whining.”
“Now he’s elected, and now it is very important that we all support the president, and that we all come together and we stop whining and it becomes one nation,” Mr. Schwarzenegger said. “As Obama said years ago, it’s not blue states and red states — it’s the United States.”
The Austrian-born star said during the campaign that he would not vote for a Republican candidate for the first time since he became a U.S. citizen decades ago. But now “I’m 100 percent behind [Mr. Trump] and I want to do everything that I can to help,” he said.
The interview wrapped up with Mr. Schwarzenegger plugging the next season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” which begins Jan. 2 on NBC at 8 p.m. EST.
