“I love Australia,” Springsteen told the Australian press. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.”
“If Trump is re-elected – 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 has long been an outspoken critic of the Republican president.
In June, he described Trump as a “threat to democracy” in an interview with The Atlantic.
“I don’t know if our democracy could stand another four years of his custodianship,” he said. “These are all existential threats to our democracy and our American way of life.”
Some Trump supporters were also the subject of ridicule recently after blasting Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” outside the hospital where the president was being treated for coronavirus.
The 1984 track was seemingly chosen as a rousing all-American anthem, but the song’s lyrics actually offer a scathing critique of the idea of US patriotism.
