Arnold Schwarzenegger has given Donald Trump a scathing lesson in what he should have said in his press conference following the deadly Charlottesville clashes.

The Terminator star condemned the President’s comments before offering his own alternative response to the white supremacist march.

Trump drew fierce criticism when he said there was “blame on both sides” for the violence, which culminated in the death of Heather Heyer, 32, after a car crashed into anti-fascist demonstrators.

Speaking in a derisive video clip, Arnie said: “There are not two sides to bigotry. There are not two sides to hatred. And if you choose to march with a flag that symbolises the slaughter of millions of people, there are not two sides.

“The only way to beat the loud, angry voices of hate is to meet them with louder, more reasonable voices.

“And that includes you, President Trump.”

He then offered his alternative speech. “As President of the United States, and as a Republican, I reject the support of white supremacists,” he said.

“The country that defeated Hitler’s armies is no place for Nazi flags.

“The party of Lincoln won’t stand with those who carry the battle flags of the failed Confederacy.”

Finally, turning to the nodding Trump toy on his desk, he asked: “Was it that difficult?”
