The actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger compared the crowd that led the American Capitol to the Nazis and called President Donald Trump a failed leader who would “go down as the worst president ever in history.”
Republicans said in a video released on social media on Sunday that “Wednesday night was the night of broken glass here in America.” In 1938, the Nazis in Germany and Austria ransacked Jewish homes, schools, and businesses during an attack known as Christalnacht, or “The Night of Broken Glass”.
“The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol. But the crowd didn’t just shatter the Capitol’s windows, they shattered the views we took. “They trample the principles upon which our country was founded.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, compared the Proud Boys – a far-South American extremist group – to the Nazis. Some Proud Boys leaders were arrested in the nation’s capital before and after Wednesday’s riots.
Schwarzenegger said in the video, “President Trump sought to reverse the results of the election and for a fair election.” “They sought a coup by misleading people with lies.”

Schwarzenegger called Trump a failed leader and said he took the solitude that Trump’s presidency was ending and would “soon become irrelevant as an old tweet.”
He called for national unity and pledged his support for the presidential election, removing congestion in the US Capitol following allegiance to Donald Trump, leading to a temporary suspension of the electoral count. Members of Congress later returned and attested the results.
Five people died, including a Capitol police officer. Crores of rioters have been arrested and many more are being sought after the shameless attack.
Schwarzenegger said, “And those who think they can overturn the Constitution of the United States know this: You will never win.”
During the video, which lasts for more than seven and a half minutes, Arnold Schwarzenegger compared American democracy to the sword in his initial role as Con Barbarians, which he said only reinforced it when it was tempered goes.
Schwarzenegger, best known for his film role as The Terminator, was elected as Governor of California in 2003 during a special recall election. He was later elected to a full term.
“I am sure that the more shocked we are about the events of recent times, the stronger we will be because we now understand what can be lost,” he said, behind the Wednesday riots – and Those who offended him – will be held accountable.
