Arnold Schwarzenegger torches Trump over Paris Accord pullout: 'The people will rise up' (Video)


Arnold Schwarzenegger put Donald Trump on blast late Thursday night over the President's decision to pull America out of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

"We can't sit back and just do nothing when people are getting sick and dying — especially when you know there's another way," Schwarzenegger said in a video, which is posted above. "So please, Mr. President, choose the future."

"You see, the people will rise up," the former Governor of California continued. "Other leaders from local governments will rise up and fill the void that you are creating."

"Money doesn't make you happy. I now have $50 million but I was just as happy when I had $48 million."
"My body is like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I don't think about it, I just have it."
"The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent."
"Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer."
"I have to give the audiences what they enjoy seeing while I try to bring in a little something new"
"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."
"You know, nothing is more important than education, because nowhere are our stakes higher; our future depends on the quality of education of our children today."
"People should make up their own mind about what they think of me."

"Like all of the great moments in human history, our clean future starts with a grass roots movement in our communities, our cities and our states," the "Terminator" star concluded, "70 percent of our dirty emissions can be controlled at the state and local level."

Watch Schwarzenegger's video above.

President Trump's withdrawal makes America just the third nation out of nearly 200 in the United Nations to be uncommitted to the future global clean emissions standards, which were first set in late 2015.
