Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, an Austrian-American who became a United States citizen in 1983, joined a chorus of voices in denouncing President Donald Trump's "divisive" comments about four Democratic congresswomen.

"I'm disappointed in this weekend's untrue, unfair, and un-American attack," Schwarzenegger told Politico Monday. "It is hateful, it is crude, and it is divisive. America has always been about where you are going, not where you come from. That's what drew me and millions of other proud, contributing Americans to the greatest country in the world to realize our dreams."

Schwarzenegger was referring to Trump's tweets about Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.; Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass.; and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.

"Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how ... it is done," Trump wrote on Sunday.

Schwarzenegger said it's time for Trump to refocus on being president.

"At some point, you have to dial down Donald and dial up President Trump," he said. "I know it isn't easy, but the job you hold is bigger than you. It is bigger than any man or woman. The American people put great trust in you to serve, and it is time to rise to their trust instead of dragging them down and tearing them apart."
