Bruce Springsteen blasts Donald Trump’s actions as “anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American”

on January 30, 2017, 12:55pm

It’s no secret that Bruce Springsteen is a staunch opponent of President Donald Trump. While out campaigning for Hillary Clinton, he referred to the overly bronzed totalitarian as a “a tragedy for our democracy.” He then serenaded the outgoing POTUS with a surprise set at the White House … as organizers of a New Jersey inaugural gala were left scrambling for a last-second replacement following the cancelation of a Springsteen tribute band.

Over the weekend, Springsteen again took shots at President Trump, this time in response to his recent executive order denying entry to citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries, including refugees and green card holders. At a concert in Adelaide, Australia, The Boss took a break between songs to decry the executive order, calling it “anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American” after dubbing America a “nation of immigrants.”

“Tonight, we want to add our voices to the thousands of Americans who are protesting at airports around our country the Muslim ban and the detention of foreign nationals and refugees,” Springsteen told the crowd, following up his statement with “an immigrant’s song” in “American Land.”

As a means of doubling down on his sentiments, Springsteen posted a video of the statement to Twitter, which you can watch below:

Meanwhile, the protests rage on as Trump continues raging about “bad ‘dudes'” on Twitter.
