Arnold Schwarzenegger Labels Trump As ‘Worst President Ever’

The fellow celebrity politician condemns Trump in a damning monologue, in which he states that Trump will ‘go down in history as the worst President ever.’ Ouch.

Schwarzenegger criticised the outgoing President following last week’s riots at the Capitol building – which Trump has been accused of inciting. His involvement could see him become the first ever President to be impeached twice, this time for insurrection. Congress have gathered this week, as the Democrats have called for a House vote, with many Republicans joining the vote to see Trump evicted from Office – just a week before Biden’s inauguration.

In a video shared on Youtube, Schwarzenegger said: “President Trump sought to overturn the result of an election – and of a fair election. He sought a coup by misleading people with lies.

“My father and our neighbours [in Nazi-occupied Austria during World War Two] were misled also with lies, and I know where such lies head.

“President Trump is a failed leader. He will go down in history as the worst president ever.

“The good thing is he will soon be as irrelevant as an old tweet.”

Arnie’s burn strikes a chord, as Trump was banned from his favourite social media platform, Twitter.

Twitter has previously censored Trump, and temporarily suspended him from their platform, but they made the decision last Friday to permanently ban him from their site.

Using their official Twitter Safety account, the social media site wrote: “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

“In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action.

“Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.

“However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules and cannot use Twitter to incite violence. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement.”

Celebrities praised Twitter’s decision to ban Trump, including fellow actor Sacha Baron Cohen. Baron Cohen recently transformed into Trump himself and trolled Vice President Mike Pence for his Borat sequel.

After Twitter’s landmark decision, other social media platforms followed suit, including Facebook and Instagram, which Mark Zuckerberg announced Trump would be banned ‘indefinitely’.

Zuckerberg said: “Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labelling his posts when they violate our policies.

“We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.

“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”

As the House continues to debate Trump’s impeachment, it is yet unknown whether the President will be forced to step down for his last week in office.
