RUMSON, N.J. (AP) — "The Boss" is questioning whether President-elect Donald Trump is ready to take office.
an interview on Marc Maron's "WTF" podcast released Monday, Bruce
Springsteen said he questions whether Trump "is simply competent enough
to do this particular job."
Springsteen is a high-profile Democrat
and appeared with Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail. Springsteen
says he understands how Trump got elected. He says the Republican played
working class fears over a changing economy, increasing diversity and
the Islamic State group.
He tells Maron that he has "felt disgust" over elections before, "but never, never the kind of fear that you feel now."
Springsteen says he plans to do his best to play a "very, very small part" in trying to ensure America maintains its ideals.
