Bruce Springsteen blasted President Donald Trump during a new interview Friday, claiming his president doesn't "grasp" the true meaning of being an American.

Speaking during an interview on "CBS This Morning," host Gayle King asked rock musician Springsteen about his name being mentioned at a recent Trump rally.

During one of Trump's KAG 2020 reelection events, the president said that his election victory in 2016 was accomplished without pandering to the support of celebrities like Springsteen, Beyoncé, and Jay-Z. 

"You surprised that he's trash-talking you after all this time?" Gayle King asked the veteran rocker.

"Not really. Anything's possible," the anti-Trump New Jersey singer responded.

King noted that "a lot of people are very concerned about the direction of the country." 

Springsteen agreed, saying that it's a "very frightening time" in America.

"The stewardship of the nation has been thrown away to somebody who doesn't have a clue as to what that means," multimillionaire Springsteen said.

"And unfortunately, we have somebody who I feel doesn't have a grasp of the deep meaning of what it means to be an American."

The interview coincides with 70-year-old Springsteen's release of his "Western Stars" soundtrack album.

Springsteen, a vocal supporter of Barack Obama in 2008 and Hillary Clinton in 2016, is no stranger to criticizing the president.

In an interview with Esquire last year, Springsteen said Trump has "no interest in uniting the country" despite wanting to make America great again.

The famed rock and roller explained at the time why Trump's presidency is "unforgivable."

“[He] has no interest in uniting the country and actually has an interest in doing the opposite and dividing us, which he does on an almost daily basis," he claimed.

"That’s simply a crime against humanity, as far as I’m concerned. It’s an awful, awful message to send out into the world.

"You are intentionally trying to disenfranchise a large portion of Americans.

"That’s unforgivable. These are folks who are invested in denying the idea of a united America and an America for all.

"It’s a critical moment. It’s a scary moment for any conscientious American, I think.”
