Arnold Schwarzenegger has condemned Donald Trump over his unprecedented rollback of environmental protections, particularly his move against California’s regulation of automobile emissions. reports citing The Guardian.

“It’s wrong,” the Terminator star and two-term governor wrote in an opinion column for the Washington Post that was pointedly headlined: “Trump can’t erase a decade of clean-air progress with a Sharpie.”

That was a reference to the furor over Trump’s display in the Oval Office last week of a hurricane map apparently altered with a Sharpie, or marker pen, to make a forecast for Hurricane Dorian show it potentially hitting Alabama.

“It’s un-American,” Schwarzenegger said. “And it’s an affront to longstanding conservative principles.”

Describing his anger at moves against California over automobile emissions, Schwarzenegger said his state had been a leader in establishing clean air standards since 1967, when his “hero”, Ronald Reagan, was governor.

California’s economic success, he said, was built on long-term planning. In contrast, the administration’s “knee-jerk reactionary policies such as the move to revoke our clean air waiver create uncertainty”.
