Former GOP governor of California and actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, wants Americans to rally behind President-elect Donald Trump and give him their complete support… and “stop whining!”
Schwarzenegger, who is now the new host of The Celebrity Apprentice in place of Trump, has changed his mind about the President-elect. He had tweeted in October, “For the first time since I became a citizen in 1983, I will not vote for the Republican candidate for President.”
In an interview on Wednesday with Matt Lauer on the Today Show, he was asked what made him make the 180 degree turn to now supporting Trump, where he then replied, “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.” He added, “When someone is elected, you get 100 percent behind, and you help them.”
When asked about Trump retaining executive producer credits on The Celebrity Apprentice Schwarzenegger responded with, “I think it’s perfectly fine that he has executive producer credit because he created the show with Mark Burnett together, so why should his credit go? He made it very clear that he has no interest in being involved. It is now my show; I’m the host, I’m the new boss, and I’m going to run this show.”
