Bruce Springsteen Says he’s Moving to Australia if Trump Wins
Since his debut in the early 70’s, Bruce Springsteen has amassed a legion of fans around the world. The rocker has also never been shy to speak out about the things that are important to him. Few musicians use their music to address social issues more than the Boss.
And Springsteen has long worked towards Democratic causes. He played at Barack Obama’s 2008 inauguration and appeared with the 44th president on the 2012 campaign trail. Springsteen has made it clear that he does not like Donald Trump. In fact, the rock star says that if Trump somehow wins in 2020, he’ll be moving to Australia.
Springsteen made the comments while speaking to The Daily Telegraph. He was asked how he would react if Trump is to be reelected.
“If Trump is reelected — which he will not be; I’m predicting right now he’s gonna lose — if by some happenstance he should be, I’ll see you on the next plane,” Springsteen responded.
The rock star has been more than happy to criticize Trump in the past. Sprinsteen said of the president in a 2019 interview, “It’s just frightening, you know? We’re living in a frightening time. The stewardship of the nation is — has been thrown away to somebody who doesn’t have a clue as to what that means. … And unfortunately, we have somebody who I feel doesn’t have a grasp of the deep meaning of what it means to be an American.”
