In the lead up to this year's presidential election, businessman Donald Trump has been in the corner of Mitt Romney since pretty much day one. So naturally, the mogul turned reality TV star has had some harsh words to say about legendary rocker Bruce Springsteen, who announced his support for the Obama campaign last week. Taking to Twitter, Trump criticized the singer for appearing at two Obama rallies this week:
"Why would Ohio listen to Bruce Springsteen reading his lines? Be careful or I will go to Ohio and @MittRomney will win it!"
Trump's words were retweeted 220 times, with 95 people adding it to their list of favorite tweets. The businessman, whose companies have declared bankruptcy four times and who was forced to resign as the head of the board from his own Casino company, has around 1.6 million followers on the social networking site.
The Boss will perform a free concert at an Obama event in Charlottesville today (October 23). As Ultimate-Guitar reported last week, the songwriter announced his support for Obama in a message on his official website:
"Right now, we need a President who has a vision that includes all of our citizens, not just some, whether they are our devastated poor, our pressured middle class, and yes, the wealthy too; whether they are male or female, black, white, brown, or yellow, straight or gay, civilian or military. For me, President Obama is our best choice because he has a vision of the United States as a place where we are all in this together. We're still living through very hard times but justice, equality and real freedom are not always a tide rushing in. They are more often a slow march, inch by inch, day after long day. I believe President Obama feels these days in his bones and has the strength to live them with us and to lead us to a country '... where no one crowds you and no one goes it alone'."
