Neil Young decided to use his platform as a songwriter-singer to raise concerns about Donald Trump while announcing his endorsement for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Young wrote an open letter on his website calling Trump “a disgrace to my country.”
Young was born in Canada but became a U.S. citizen last year.
In his letter, Young said Trump’s “mindless destruction of our shared natural resources, our environment and our relationships with friends around the world is unforgivable.”
“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,” he continued.
In his letter, Young voiced praise for Sanders, who is currently leading the Democratic primary pack, saying the leftist has “the 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,” Young wrote.
“His initials are BS. Not his policies.”
