U2 musician Bono believes Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump could destroy America.
In an interview with Charlie Rose, the singer-songwriter said Trump could destroy the country.
“America is like the best idea the world ever came up with, but Donald Trump is potentially the worst idea that ever happened to America. (He) could destroy it, because of what we’re saying. America is not just a country. … American is an idea, and that idea is banded up in justice and equality for all,” Bono said in the interview.
The musician, 56, said he does not see Trump as the true representative of the Republican party.
“I think he’s hijacked the party, and I think he’s trying to hijack the idea of America. I think it’s bigger than all of us. This is really dangerous. Wise people of conscience should not let this man turn your country into a casino.”
