Following multiple reports speculating on the issue, Donald Trump announced on Thursday that the United States would be pulling out of the landmark Paris climate accord. Within minutes the president received instant backlash, with movie star and former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger making sure to give his two cents on the issue.

Arnold terminates Trump

After Donald Trump announced that he was running for president, it was clear that he wouldn't have the best relationship with celebrities out in Hollywood. While Hollywood stars hold mostly liberal political views, even some on the conservative side have not been pleased with the former host of "The Apprentice." Though Trump has got into a war of words with many high-profiled names, including Alec Baldwin, Rosie O'Donnell and many others, his back and forth with Arnold Schwarzenegger always makes instant headlines.

Schwarzenegger has been well-known as an action movie star for the better part of the last four decades, before serving as the governor of California in the early 2000s. During the 2016 presidential election, the former "Terminator" star endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich for president, while being vocal in his criticism of Trump. Since then, Trump and Schwarzenegger have gotten into heated exchanges on social media over a variety of issues, which continued when the former governor pushed back on the exit of the Paris climate accord on June 1.

Sitting down for video interview with ATTN on Thursday, Arnold Schwarzenegger ripped into Donald Trump over his decision to remove the United States from the aforementioned climate deal.

"One man cannot destroy our progress," Schwarzenegger said, before adding, "One man can't stop our clean energy revolution. And one man can’t go back in time."

"Protecting our environment will not destroy our economy," Arnold Schwarzenegger continued, while explaining, "great environmental policies do the opposite.

They pump up the economy." "My message to you Mr. President is that as a public servant, especially as a president, your first and most important responsibility is to protect the people," he continued. The award-winning star of "Predator" went on to explain the dire need to fight back against climate change before giving examples of what could happen in the future if not action is taken.

Moving forward

In the aftermath of Donald Trump's Paris climate decision, the political divide in the United States continues to widen. Supporters of the president praised the end result, while critics pointed to the overwhelming scientific evidence that says climate change is a long term issue that most be dealt with sooner rather than later.
