House Speaker Paul Ryan, Rep. Liz Cheney, Senator Lindsay Graham, Senator John McCain, and more conservative politicians, as well as several Fox News contributors, all admonished the president for taking Putin at his word regarding the election interference.
Trump's actions have been met with fierce criticism from all corners, not just the United States, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, star of the Terminator franchise and former Governor of California, is the latest to voice his disapproval.
The Terminator actor accused the U.S. president of "selling out" the country's intelligence community and justice system.
Arnold Schwarzenneger has branded President Trump "a little wet noodle" after Trump nearly told press he believed Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies. "I was asking myself, 'When are going to ask him for an autograph or a selfie or something like that'". "I mean, you stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fanboy", Mr Schwarzenegger said in the video. What is the matter with you?' he questioned in the clip aimed at the president.
Schwarzenegger has made it clear in the past that he's not a fan of Trump.
Arnie then brilliantly concludes his rant with a heavy sigh.
"The sentence should have been; "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't or why it wouldn't be Russia". "I don't think he cares about California and I think California doesn't care about him".
