In a speech in Los Angeles hours before he was to appear on CNN for a town-hall meeting, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger went after President Trump like a relentless cyborg, accusing him of stealing from children.
Mr. Schwarzenegger, who took over as host of “Celebrity Apprentice” after Mr. Trump’s presidency-motivated departure, singled out Mr. Trump’s budget plan to eliminate the $1.2 billion 21st Century Community Learning Center grant program.
“President Trump promised us he wants to ‘make America great again.’ That’s not how you make America great, by taking $1.2 billion from the children and robbing them blind,” Mr. Schwarzenegger told the National After-School Summit at the University of Southern California’s Schwarzenegger Institute.
“Why would he do that?” the Austrian-born actor said. “Why would he want to balance the budget on the backs of those kids?”
