In an excerpt from his interview with The Big Issue magazine, the Mötley Crüe drummer vowed to move to Greece, where he was born, if Trump wins the 2020 election.
“Dude, I swear to God if this happens then I’m coming to visit UK,” he told the UK publication. “I’m out of here. I will go back to my homeland, go back to Greece and find a house on one of the islands. ”
Lee has repeatedly criticized the president since Trump was elected in 2016, most recently warning him for refusing to condemn white supremacy in the first presidential debate in September.
The president, Lee told The Big Issue, has weakened the United States’ reputation as a global superpower.
“What stings the most is that I feel like we are embarrassing,” he said. “I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world are looking at America and thinking, ‘What are you doing there? Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country. “”
Lee is one of the many rock stars who have stood against Trump.
Dee Snider, frontman of Twisted Sister and former “Celebrity Apprentice” candidate, criticized the president in August for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
And artists like Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Neil Young have called on Trump not to perform their songs at his rallies, citing political differences. Bruce Springsteen, who said in 2018 that he believed Trump would be re-elected, released a song protesting Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again.”
