It’s official: The U.S. is out of the Paris Climate Agreement, courtesy of President Donald Trump. Reactions from all sides are coming in, but one man, possibly cyborg, has a special message for Trump that we just have to share.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, former Governor of California and Terminator, has slammed Trump’s decision in a blunt and entertaining three minute video, recorded for Attn and shared on Twitter.
“One man cannot destroy our progress. One man can’t stop our clean energy revolution. And one man can’t go back in time. Only I can do that,” said T-800.
Jabs and movie references aside, Schwarzenegger’s stance is that the most important job of a U.S. president is to protect the American people, and that keeping the environment clean is a big part of that responsibility.
In a particularly hard-hitting part, Schwarzenegger points out that walking back on an important agreement is a move unbecoming of a leader.
“No one remembers the people who told President Kennedy not to go to the moon. We remember the great leaders. The great leaders that don’t walk backwards into the past, but great leaders that charge forward towards the future,” he said.
When even advanced cyborgs coming back from the future are warning you that your moves are wrong, you just have to reconsider your actions. Right?
