Arnold Schwarzenegger and President Donald Trump have not gotten along ever since the former actor and governor took over Trump's 'The Apprentice' reality show. They have feuded on Twitter, Facebook, and in the mainstream press. On Thursday, Schwarzenegger released a video calling on the president to decry racism.

In the video release by news company ATTN, Schwarzenegger objected to Trump having equated white supremacists with the far-left after last Saturday's rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"There are not two sides to bigotry, and there are not two sides to hatred," he began. "If you choose to march with a flag that symbolizes the murder of millions of people, then 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."

Schwarzenegger then read to Trump a speech the former governor wishes the president had read. "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."

The Austrian-born Schwarzenegger has historically taken a strong stand against Nazi ideology. He has worked with the Los Angeles-based Wiesenthal Center for decades, and once asked them to research his father's Nazi past.

He also announced last Tuesday that he would donate $100,000 to the Center, writing on Facebook that "I have been horrified by the images of Nazis and white supremacists marching in Charlottesville and I was heartbroken that a domestic terrorist took an innocent life."
