Bruce Springsteen has branded Donald Trump a "moron" who has the United States of America "under siege". The rock icon shares his views on the incredibly divisive Republican Presidential candidate in a new interview, calling Trump's political platform "a tragedy for our democracy". Asked what he thinks of the businessman's meteoric rise in the world of politics, Springsteen tells Rolling Stone: "Well, you know, the republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it's a tragedy for our democracy." Springsteen adds later: "The ideas he's moving to the mainstream are all very dangerous ideas – white nationalism and the alt-right movement." "I believe that there's a price being paid for not addressing the real cost of the deindustrialization and globalisation that has occurred in the United States for the past 35, 40 years and how it's deeply affected people's lives and deeply hurt people to where they want someone who says they have a solution," Springsteen continues. "And Trump's thing is simple answers to very complex problems. Fallacious answers to very complex problems. And that can be very appealing." Later in the interview, Springsteen endorses Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, saying: "I like Hillary. I think she would be a very, very good president." Springsteen's eagerly-anticipated memoir Born To Run is published by Simon & Schuster on Tuesday (September 27). Springsteen began writing Born To Run privately in 2009, before the deal with Simon & Schuster was announced in 2015. On Friday (September 23), he released a companion album called 'Chapter & Verse'. The album sees Springsteen choose 18 songs from across his career which he feels are reflective of the themes in the book.

The Shins - No Way Down lyrique

The son of a government man
And a pillar of salt
I was born with blood on my hands
And have all the signs of a bleeding heart

Living high on a giant hawk
On a mountain so steep
Keep your head in a hollow log
As the ruling fog are about to creep

What have we done?
How'd we get so far from the sun?
Lost, lost in an oscillating phase
Where a tiny few catch all of the rays

Out beyond the western squalls
In an Indian land
They work for nothing at all
They don't know the mall or the layaway plan

Dig yourself a beautiful grave
Everything you could want
Maybe those invisible slaves
Are too far away for a ghost to haunt

What do we charge?
Letting go of a claim so large
Oh, all of our working days are done
But a tiny few are having all of the fun

Get used to the dust in your lungs

Is there no way down
From this peak to solid ground
Without having our gold teeth
Pulled from our mouth

Make me a drink strong enough
To wash away this dishwater world they said was lemonade
Walk with me after the show
Maybe we can find a way through the minefield in the snow

What are they charged?
Letting go of a claim so large
Oh, all of our working days are done
But a tiny few are having all of the fun

Apologies to the sick and the young
Get used to the dust in your lungs
