The biggest political story to dominate the news cycle is currently the controversial executive order signed by Donald Trump that restricts travel from seven countries in the Middle East. In respond, heavy backlash has followed, including from the current host of "The Celebrity Apprentice," Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Schwarzenegger on Trump

On Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump signed off on several executive orders, but none more controversial than the aforementioned Muslim ban. Less than 24 hours after the ordered became law, travelers were being detained at various airports around the country, including Kennedy International Airport in New York.

Two of the men who were detained quickly contacted the ACLU and filed a lawsuit against the administration. As of press time, a federal judge has issued a temporary stay on the travel ban. As reported by Mediaite on January 30, many celebrities are speaking out, including Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Joining host Mari Lopez on Monday was Arnold Schwarzenegger, who recently replaced Donald Trump on "The Celebrity Apprentice." "The Terminator" star lashed out at the executive order, saying it makes the United States "look stupid."

"To go and to ban people that have a green card, that means that the United States of America has given you permission to work here permanently in this country and you are on the way to permanent citizenship," Arnold Schwarzenegger said, while pointing out, "I was in that position...It's crazy." Not stopping there, the former governor of California continued to elaborate on his thoughts on the travel ban.

"It's crazy and makes us look stupid when the White House is ill-prepared to put these kind of executive orders out there." Schwarzenegger then called for Trump to work with Democrats in bi-partisan fashion, referring to the backlash against him as a "wake-up call."

Despite the increasing opposition against him, Donald Trump and his administration don't appear willing to back down.

In addition to Arnold Schwarzenegger, other celebrities have spoken out against the travel ban. At the SAG Awards on Sunday night, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, William H. Macy, Ashton Kutcher, and David Harbour were some of the names who were vocal in their opposition.
