Actor and Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger has called out US President Donald Trump in a new video posted to his Twitter, labelling him the “worst president ever.”
The former Governor of California compared last week’s attack on the US Capitol building an event in 1938 that gave rise to Nazi Germany.
“It was a night of rampage against the Jews carried out in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys,” the actor said in the video.
“Wednesday was the Day of Broken Glass right here in the United States. The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol.
“But the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol. They shattered the ideas we took for granted.”
