    Joining the growing list of people upset with US President Donald Trump's "both sides" statement on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this week, Arnold Schwarzenegger published a new video Thursday to offer suggestions on how The Donald should have responded.

    ​"The only way to beat the loud, angry voice of hate is to meet them with louder, more reasonable voices. That includes you, President Trump," the actor-turned-governor said. "In fact, as president of this great country, you have a moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that you won't stand for hate and racism."

    And then Arnie went ahead and did Trump's job for him.

    "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 flag of the failed Confederacy."

    Adding a little fuel to the flames, the former bodybuilder then leaned down toward a bobble-head replica of the commander-in-chief and asked "was that difficult?" before laughing and saying, "see, I told you!"

    But Schwarzenegger wasn't done yet. He also had a message to the "neo-Nazis, white supremacists and the neo-Confederates."

    "Your heroes are losers," the Schwarz said bluntly. "You are supporting a lost cause."

    "Growing up, I was surrounded by broken men, men who came home from a war filled with shrapnels and guilt, men who were misled into a losing ideology," he recalled. "And I can tell you: these ghosts you idolize spent the rest of their lives living in shame and right now," he paused before delivering the kicker: "they're resting in hell."

    The former California governor then added that in the end, "it's never too last to make the choices to learn and evolve, and understand that all human beings have equal value."

    Trump has been criticized for being slow to respond to the violence in Virginia on Saturday and Sunday, during which one woman was killed and 19 injured in a vehicle attack by a white supremacist, and for saying in a Tuesday news conference that "there is blame on both sides." One side was bad, while the other, "was also very violent," the president suggested.
