Keith Richards Says ‘America Has To Get Rid’ Of Trump

Keith Richards said Tuesday that “America has to get rid” of President Donald Trump.

“Now America has to get rid of him,” the 74-year-old Rolling Stones guitarist shared during an interview on BBC Radio 4. “Don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

The comments came as Richard was recalling a time before Trump was pegged to promote the Rolling Stones concert in Atlanta City.

“When we got to Atlantic City [The concert was prominently advertised as] ‘Donald Trump Presents…’ ‘The Rolling Stones’ [was written] in miniature,” the guitarist explained.

“We never have much to do with promoters usually, but this one got me,” Richards shared. “That was the last time I got angry–I pulled out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: ‘You’ve got to get rid of this man.'”

It wasn’t the first time Richards has taken a swipe at Trump. During an interview in 2015, he said that a Trump presidency would be a “nightmare.”

“Can you imagine President Trump? The worst nightmare,” Richards explained. “But we can’t say that. Because it could happen. This is one of the wonders of this country.”
