It seems as though New Jersey native Bruce Springsteen is still feeling the same questionable ways towards the ideologies of the United States of America and those who run it as he was when he penned his hit track "Born In The U.S.A" over three decades ago. 

Now, the veteran rock star has taken some time during a recent virtual press conference promoting his new album "Letter to You" to discuss his political affiliations once again and drop the bombshell claim that if Donald Trump is reelected, he will move to Australia.

When asked by an Australian reporter during the conversations with fans if he would ever consider moving down to Australia, Springsteen said, "I would consider that," per The Daily Mail. He then detailed some of his specific reasons for loving the area so much.

"I love Australia," he continued to mention. "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."

Moving Due To Politics

However, Springsteen maintained that his option to move to Australia is much more deeply rooted than a want for a change of scenery, saying he will most likely be acting on this decision if Donald Trump is somehow reelected for a second term as President of the United States.

"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," he told fans candidly.

"Actually [Trump] has an interest in doing the opposite and dividing us, which he does on an almost daily basis," the star went was noted having said to Esquire back in 2018 about his feelings regarding what has transpired in America since 2016. 

"That's simply a crime against humanity, as far as I'm concerned," Springsteen added to his disdainful comments about the current President and his administration at the time, saying that he hopes that America can "survive Trump" and return to its "basic founding principles" of equality and social justice work.

Springsteen then took some time to actually discuss his forthcoming album, due out next week, and how it came to be, saying that a large amount of the new work was composed on a handmade guitar gifted to him by a fan on Broadway.

"I looked at it and I could tell right away that it was beautifully made so I brought it home … and it played beautifully, it sounded gorgeous … and it had a variety of different types of wood, it was a real piece of craftsmanship," he explained of the guitar's nuanced qualities. "So I left it in my living room. When I started to feel the urge to write, I just picked it up because it was such an easy play."
