Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has replaced Donald Trump as host of “The New Celebrity Apprentice” after the latter decided to join politics, recently commented on the US president’s immigration order. Schwarzenegger said that the ban was “crazy” and it makes the country “look stupid.”

Schwarzenegger was an Austrian immigrant. He came to the United States in 1968, and earned his American citizenship in 1983. He later became the governor of California and served two terms from 2003 until 2011.

He said that he understands that Trump wants to keep the nation safe. However, the plan was vetted badly. He said that some time should have been given to the Justice Department as well as the Department of Homeland Security to figure out the best way of regulating America’s borders.

The part of the order that initially denied entry to green card holders from the banned seven nations irked the actor-politician in particular, as “The New Celebrity Apprentice” host was once a green card holder himself. “To go and ban people who have a green card, that means that the United States of America has given you permission to work here permanently and you are on the way to permanent citizenship,” he said. “It’s crazy and makes us look stupid when the White House is ill-prepared to put this kind of executive order out there,” he added.

After Trump signed the executive order, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as well as House Homeland Security Committee chairman Michael McCaul said that green card holders should by large be allowed in America. Meanwhile, Schwarzenegger is hoping that the confusion is solved soon.

Furthermore, he is hoping that Trump’s administration will take a lesson from it. “You go in there new, you have a new team and mistakes are made. I hope this is a wake-up call for them,” he told Extra TV.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is hosting the 15th season of the show, which was earlier hosted by Donald Trump. While Trump said that he opted out of the show with due “respect” in order to focus on his presidential campaign, grapevine suggests that NBC cut ties with him after he made controversial remarks when his campaign started in 2015.

However, Donald Trump who is still on board as executive producer apparently watches "The New Celebrity Apprentice," which airs in the US at 8PM ET on NBC. The show doesn't air in Australia. Earlier this month, Trump even slammed Arnold Schwarzenegger for the show’s skimpier ratings. Below are the scathing tweets that Trump wrote about the new host and Schwarzenegger’s response to them.
