As someone already familiar with the media, Schwarzenegger understood what the masses wanted to hear from him. He wanted to reduce car exhaust fumes and use renewable energy.
He tried to reach that with strict regulations for the car manufacturers and took the German renewable energy laws to make the environment better. Even nowadays he is committed to environmental protection processes. For example, it was seen at the Climate Conference in Bonn (2017) in which he voluntarily attended. He vowed to create new jobs. He also promised to reduce the debts of California; however, he failed at accomplishing that goal.
In 2007 he was re-elected as the governor of California, but this time he was overwhelmed by his job. The housing crisis and the high unemployment rate destroyed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s image as the hero who comes and liberates the people from their sorrows.
