Want to know what The Boss thinks about President Donald Trump? You don't have to look far.
In yet another jab against the newly elected president, New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen slammed Trump's executive order on immigration and America's refugee program during a show in Adelaide, Australia, Monday.
"Tonight we want to add our voices to the thousands of Americans who are protesting at airports around the country the Muslim ban and the detention of foreign nationals and refugees," he said to the audience. "America is a nation of immigrants and we find this anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American."
Springsteen is talking about Trump's executive order signed Friday that bans Syrians from entering the United States indefinitely and refugees from entering for 120 days. Immigrants from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen are banned from entering the United States for 90 days.
Springsteen then launched into the song "American Land."
It's certainly not the first time Springsteen's been vocal about the new administration. When he kicked off his Australian tour last week, he showed support for the 5 million who participated in the worldwide Women's March held after Trump's inauguration.
Back in October, Springsteen also called Trump a "flagrant, toxic narcissist" during an interview with Channel 4 News, a British broadcaster.
He also played a secret "thank you" show for former President Barack Obama and his staff weeks before he left office.
Springsteen was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Obama in November.
