Neil Young Rips Donald Trump in Open Letter: "You Are a Disgrace to My Country"

On Bernie Sanders: "His initials are BS. Not his policies"
Neil Young Rips Donald Trump in Open Letter: 'You Are a Disgrace to My Country'
Neil Young has now been an American citizen for nearly a month, and in spite of getting his paperwork in order, the rock legend hasn't changed his tune when it comes to Donald Trump.

Instead of just simply telling him to shut up, Young has penned a new open letter to Trump, shared through his Neil Young Archives website. He pulls no punches in telling the president, "You are a disgrace to my country."

Invoking the looming climate crisis and Trump's incessant boasts concerning the economy, Young writes, "The United States of America, my country, is not a green on one of your branded golf courses that you can ride around on and damage so that other players cannot shoot straight."

Young also once again (in spite of alleged licences) raised the issue of Trump playing his music at rallies. "Every time 'Keep on Rockin' in the Free World' or one of my songs is played at your rallies, I hope you hear my voice," he writes. "Remember it is the voice of a tax-paying US citizen who does not support you. Me."

Young concludes the letter with words of support for Bernie Sanders, writing, "His initials are BS. Not his policies."

"One of your opponents has answers I like. He is aiming at preserving our children's future directly," Young elaborates. "He is not popular with the democratic establishment because unlike all the other candidates, he is not pandering to the industries accelerating Earth's Climate Disaster, the end of the world as we know it. He is truly fighting for the USA."

You can read Young's complete letter below.

As recently reported, the music icon has plenty of archival projects on deck for 2020.

You are a disgrace to my country. Bragging about the US economy does not disguise the fact that the numbers today are what you inherited almost 4 years ago.

Your mindless destruction of our shared natural resources, our environment and our relationships with friends around the world is unforgivable.

Your policies, decisions and short term thinking continue to exacerbate the Climate Crisis.

Our first black president was a better man than you are.

The United States of America, my country, is not a green on one of your branded golf courses that you can ride around on and damage so that other players cannot shoot straight.

"Keep on Rockin' in the Free World" is not a song you can trot out at one of your rallies. Perhaps you could have been a bass player and played in a rock and roll band. That way you could be on stage at a rally every night in front of your fans, if you were any good, and you might be…

Every time "Keep on Rockin' in the Free World" or one of my songs is played at your rallies, I hope you hear my voice. Remember it is the voice of a tax-paying US citizen who does not support you. Me.

I don't blame the people who voted for you. I support their right to express themselves, although they have been lied to, and in many cases believed the lies, they are true Americans. I have their back.

US justice is ours — not yours

One of your opponents has answers I like. He is aiming at preserving our children's future directly. He is not popular with the democratic establishment because unlike all the other candidates, he is not pandering to the industries accelerating Earth's Climate Disaster, the end of the world as we know it. he is truly fighting for the USA.
His initials are BS. Not his policies.

We are going to vote you out and
Make America Great Again.
