The band U2 blasted Donald Trump during the iHeart radio festival in Las Vegas, telling attendees if they vote for Trump they will lose “everything.”

Lead singer Bono took the stage with a large screen behind him playing video of Trump saying, “What do you have to lose ” and the “American dream is dead.” He also took time during the song “Desire” to slam the Republican presidential nominee and warn voters against picking him. (RELATED: Bono: Donald Trump Is Trying To Hijack America)


“Las Vegas, are you ready to gamble,” Bono shouted. “Are you ready to gamble your car? Are you ready to gamble your house?” (RELATED: State Department Fielded Request From Bono At Bill Clinton’s Aide’s Request)

“Are you ready to gamble the American Dream,” he added. “The America Dream is alive. What do you have to lose….Everything.”

During one of the festival interviews, Bono said “we are Irish people” and can’t tell people how to vote, but said it is in the “whole world’s interest who sits in the oval office.”


“I have huge respect for the party of Abraham Lincoln, for Republicans,” Bono said. “And I would just say people in their local elections, if it’s a matter of conscience they can’t vote for Donald Trump, because they don’t feel he acknowledges the essence of that party, well then ask locally who is the representative who more fairly represents you.”

“We are Irish people and can’t tell people what to vote for, but we can…it’s very important to the whole world who sits in the Oval Office,” he added. “But we can say look it might just be going to far at a really difficult time in the world’s history to have someone with zero experience and capable of you know….I haven’t got my finger on the nuclear arsenal.”
