    Bruce Springsteen is not a fan of Donald Trump or his presidential campaign.

    Bruce Springsteen says Donald Trump's presidential campaign is a "great embarrassment" for Americans.

    The Boss shared his thoughts on the Republican candidate as a guest on Swedish-Norwegian talk show "Skavlan."

    In an excerpt of the program posted online by Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter on Friday, Springsteen said he understands why people who have struggled to make ends meet could find some of Trump's arguments compelling.

    Commenting on Trump's chances, he said "the absurdity is beyond cartoon-like. But he's gotten close enough so it can make you nervous. I don't think he's going to win, but even him running is a great embarrassment if you're an American."
