Springsteen joins “new resistance” against Trump

American rock star Bruce Springsteen says the “new resistance” against Donald Trump has begun.

PERTH, AUSTRALIA (SEVEN NETWORK / ABC) – American rock star Bruce Springsteen, who supported Hillary Clinton during the recent presidential election campaign, said on Sunday (January 22) his band joins a global “new resistance” against U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trump’s inauguration on Friday (January 20) and his defiant pledge to end “American carnage” was followed by a weekend of mass protests across the United States and internationally.

Hundreds of thousands of people filled the streets of Washington and other capitals around the world on Saturday for “sister marches,” mocking and denouncing the new U.S. leader the day after his inauguration.

Speaking before a 3.5 hour set at Perth Arena, Springsteen said he and his band’s line up of songs for his tour has been influenced by the Trump campaign and presidency.
