Bruce Springsteen and Tommy Lee are making recent headlines after declaring that they plan to flee the US should Donald Trump be re-elected. “If Trump is reelected - 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,” Springsteen told Australia’s Daily Telegraph.
Meanwhile Lee told The Big Issue, “Dude, I swear to God if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the UK. I’m out of here. I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to go Greece and get a house on one of the islands,” Lee, who was born in Athens and raised in California, said.
“I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: ‘What the fuck are you guys doing over there?’” Lee continued. “Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country.”
In 2016 several celebrities pledged to flee the country if Trump won the presidential election. The Hollywood Reporter recently did a where are they now? list.
