Had Arnold Schwarzenegger been born in America, the U.S. presidential decision, won in November by Donald Trump, may well have turned out in an unexpected way.
Be that as it may, he was most certainly not. This is something that the Terminator star calls attention to amid a meeting for the natural film Wonders of the Sea 3D, which he is advancing in Cannes.
“First of all, I am not born in America, otherwise I would have run the last time,” he told The Daily Beast. “That is clear.”
As he has proven, from his role as Governor of California or through his own environmental organization, R20, or even through his contribution as the narrator of this magnificent Cousteau underwater project, one can influence politics in a number of ways.
“I think you can have a great impact on the world without being inside politics,” says Schwarzenegger. “There are many ways of going about it, if you think of the great contributions people make around the world, fighting for a certain cause. The best way it works is if the private sector, the public sector and the non-profit sector all work together in harmony. That is the ideal setup so that you can attack the problem from different angles.”
He knows of what he speaks, as becomes clear when he discusses the R20 approach.
