Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared to resume his “Kindergarten Cop” role on Wednesday while chastising President-elect Donald Trump’s critics.

NBC’s Matt Lauer sat down with Mr. Schwarzenegger for a “Today” show interview that touched on everything from his new role as host of “Celebrity Apprentice” to American voters who are still disappointed in Mr. Trump’s Election Day win.

The former Republican governor of California — who did not vote for Mr. Trump — had a message for the billionaire’s critics: “Stop whining.”

“Now he’s elected, and now it is very important that we all support the president, and that we all come together and we stop whining and it becomes one nation,” Mr. Schwarzenegger said, The Hill reported. “As Obama said years ago, it’s not blue states and red states — it’s the United States.”

The movie star said during the campaign that he would not vote for a Republican candidate for the first time since he became an American citizen decades ago.

“I’m 100 percent behind [Mr. Trump] and I want to do everything that I can to help,” Mr. Schwarzenegger said Wednesday. “

The interview wrapped up with Mr. Schwarzenegger plugging the next season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” which begins Jan. 2 on NBC at 8 p.m. EST.
