Former California governor and famed actor Arnold Schwarzenegger took aim at Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator Scott Pruitt, saying he "should be removed."
"He is without any doubt the wrong person at that place," Schwarzenegger said Thursday during remarks receiving an award from California’s Air Resources Board, The Hill reported.
"He does not represent the people. He only represents the special interests. He should be removed immediately," the "Terminator" star, California's governor from 2003 to 2011, said at the event, The Hill reported.
The actor accepted an award named for Dr. Arie J. Haagen-Smit, the first chairman of California’s Air Resources Board.
"Haagen-Smit was the man. Now, 50 years later, you have (President Donald) Trump appointing Pruitt to the EPA. What happened?" Schwarzenegger said. "This is so sad."
Schwarzenegger has been a frequent critic of Trump.
"The only way to beat the loud and angry voices of hate is to meet them with louder and more reasonable voices," Schwarzenegger said in August after Trump responded to the Charlottesville, Virginia, violence by saying there were good people on "both sides."
