Bruce Springsteen says he'll take next plane to Australia if Trump re-elected, Internet says 'pack your bags'
Bruce Springsteen has announced that he will pack up his belongings and flee to Australia if President Donald Trump wins a second term in November. During a virtual interview with Australian media outlets, the singer-songwriter also predicted that Trump would be no match for his Democratic challenger Joe Biden and would lose badly to the former Vice President. “I love Australia,” Springsteen told Australia's Daily Telegraph. “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.”
The 'Streets of Philadelphia' hitmaker subsequently made his prediction about the 2020 presidential election. “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.”
Several social media users appeared to poke fun at Springsteen's latest bid and encouraged him to leave American soil. "Do you need help with your one-way plane ticket to Australia Bruce? We will pay it as long as you take the rest of the pathetic Commie celebrities with you," one wrote.
"I just read that if (when) President Trump wins, Tommy Lee (Motley Crue) and Bruce Springsteen said they will move to Europe and Australia. Pack your bags B**ches. PS: Haven’t patronized either one for years!" another added. "Bruce Springsteen. Please leave for Australia! We won’t miss you. Oh by the way don’t forget to take Robert De Niro!" a third chimed in.
"The only good thing if Trump wins... And it's the only good thing.. Bruce Springsteen said he will move to Australia But he reckons he's a goner," a fourth added.

But he reckons he's a goner 🤘
Springsteen has been one of Trump's most vocal critics in the music industry and has never shied away from offering character assessments of the President. Last month, he described Trump's presidency as a "very disturbing time" and said that "overall, as somebody who was a born populist, I’ve got a little less faith in my neighbors than I had four years ago.”
“White supremacy and white privilege have gone much deeper than I thought they did,” the rocker told Rolling Stone while speaking about Black Lives Matter, an organization he credited with highlighting racism in America. “I think my feeling previously to the past three or four years was that racism and white supremacy and white privilege were veins in our extremities, rather than an aorta that cuts through the very heart of the nation, which I feel it is now.”
That said, a Trump win could prove to be a joke on the Jersey Shore rocker himself - considering Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is a conservative politician and a huge fan of Trump and his politics.
G’day USA. The Aussies are here. Wonderful to be here in the land of the free and home of the brave. Special thanks to my friend @realDonaldTrump and the First Lady for their warm invitation and welcome. pic.twitter.com/icu9CMqXfl— Scott Morrison (@ScottMorrisonMP) September 19, 2019
“There are many larger, I suppose, more powerful friends that America has, but they know they do not have a more sure and steadfast friend than Australia,” Morrison said when he arrived here for an official visit last year, Breitbart News reported.
