Schwarzenegger: Trump critics should 'stop whining'

Arnold Schwarzenegger recently suggested that Donald Trump's detractors should "stop whining."

The former California governor made the comment on NBC's 'Today' show on Thursday after host Matt Lauer asked about changes in his perspective since he tweeted during the election, "For the first time since I became a citizen in 1983, I will not vote for the Republican candidate for president."

Schwarzenegger responded by saying, "Well, what changed was that now he is elected, and now it is very important that we all support the president, that we all come together and we stop whining and it becomes one nation. Obama said many years ago, it's not blue states and red states. It's the United States of America."

Lauer asked about the president-elect, in part, because Schwarzenegger has taken over Trump's former role as the host of "The Celebrity Apprentice."

The interview also involved a question about Trump possibly weighing in with tips for the show, to which Schwarzenegger responded, in part, "I always like to get advice, but I don't think that he will have time...he made it very clear that he has no interest in being involved."

Trump confirmed this by tweeting on December 10, "I have NOTHING to do with The Apprentice except for fact that I conceived it with Mark [Burnett] & have a big stake in it. Will devote ZERO TIME!"
