What is Trump's worst speech and why

Schwarzenegger on Trump: "Worst President"

Arnold Schwarzenegger (73) called on the Americans after the storm on the Capitol in a message on Twitter to overcome the division of the country.

In a speech "to my fellow Americans and friends around the world," the former action actor and ex-California governor said on Sunday, "We have to heal together from the drama that just happened. We have to as Americans heal. "

President Donald Trump attempted a coup "by misleading people with lies," said Schwarzenegger. "President Trump is a failed leader. He will go down in history as the worst president ever." But America will overcome these dark days and come back stronger, "because we now understand what we have to lose". If President-elect Joe Biden is successful, "the nation will be successful," said Schwarzenegger, who, like Trump, is a member of the Republican Party.

Schwarzenegger draws parallels to the Jewish program

Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, drew parallels between the storming of the Capitol in Washington and the Jewish pogrom in Germany in 1938 on "Kristallnacht", the "night of the broken glass", as he said. "Wednesday was broken glass day here in the US."

"Principles trampled"

Supporters of President Donald Trump demonstrated on Wednesday in the political center of Washington against the certification of the presidential election results. Some forcibly entered the Capitol. Schwarzenegger said the mob not only broke the windows, "they broke the ideas we took for granted. They trampled on the principles on which our country was founded."

Schwarzenegger was nevertheless optimistic. In the "Bild am Sonntag" he said that perseverance was one of the things he loved about the USA. "Whenever you think that's it, the Americans get up again. Like a phoenix from the ashes." According to Schwarzenegger, Trump's behavior cannot be explained by his own account: "I spent time with Donald. I have never seen him as he is now." - dpa
