‘If You Want To Drill, Do It Off Mar-a-Lago’: Schwarzenegger Slams Trump, Tells Him To Stay Out Of Calif. Coast

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger slammed President Donald Trump on Monday over his move to allow increased offshore drilling, saying he ought to drill in the waters off his Palm Beach, Fla., resort rather than California.

“Don’t touch California. If you want to drill, do it off Mar-a-Lago,” Schwarzenegger tweeted. “Or better yet, look to the future, follow CA’s lead & go green and we can all breathe easier. The US’s largest economy is nearly 50 percent renewable. #ProtectThePacific”

In a second tweet, Schwarzenegger said: “Our fishing, tourism, and recreation industries employ hundreds of thousands of great people. Our coasts are an economic gold mine. Do not put them at risk.”

The White House did not respond to a request to comment.
