Popular actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has said President Donald Trump will go down in history as the worst US president.

He compared the riot that occurred at the Capitol Hill rampage to Kristallnacht, the night in November 1938 when Nazi thugs attacked Jewish Germans and their property.
The actor accused Trump of attempting to overturn the results of a fair election. He said the president sought a coup by misleading people with lies.
Schwarzenegger recalled his experiences growing up in Austria after World War II to what he was witnessing in the United States.
He said his father and his neighbours were misled with lies into supporting the Nazi government.
According to him, he grew up surrounded by men who drank away their guilt over their participation in the most evil regime in history.
My father and our neighbors were misled also with lies,” he said. And I know where such lies lead.”
The actor stated that people responsible for the riot at the Capitol should be accountable.
In a call for bipartisanship, Schwarzenegger underscored the need for the nation’s healing.

The actor stated that American democracy will become stronger just as a sword forged in fire.
Schwarzenegger wished the incoming Biden administration well in the interest of America.
Meanwhile, the Speaker of the United States' House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has told President Donald Trump to resign following the Capitol violence which led four people dead.
The New York Times reported that Pelosi said on Friday, January 7, that the House could impeach the president if he fails to resign due to his role in inciting the violence which took place at the Capitol.
Pelosi who belongs to the Democratic Party also called on her colleagues from the Republican Party to join the push to get President Trump out of office.
