Bruce Springsteen responded to Donald Trump's recent slight during a campaign rally in which he dubbed the rock legend "little Bruce Springsteen," when listing musical artists who backed Hillary Clinton in 2016. During Springsteen's chat with Gayle King for CBS This Morning, Springsteen -- who was busy promoting his new concert film, Western Stars, was asked to share his thoughts on the Trump Presidency.

Springsteen, who railed against Trump long before he even snagged the GOP nomination, spoke about the State of The Union under Trump: "It's just frightening. Y'know, we're living in a frightening time. The stewardship of the nation is. . . is (sic) been thrown away to somebody who doesn't have a clue as to what that means. And unfortunately, have somebody who, I feel, doesn't have a grasp of the deep meaning of what it means to be an American."

Springsteen, who has previously hopped on the campaign trail to help snag votes for John Kerry, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton, was asked if he was prepared to do the same in 2020: "I mean I've kinda spent my chips on (laughs) on the folks I've helped in the past, but I always take it as it goes and see, see how it turns out, or what comes closer to elections and things."

On November 4th, Bruce Springsteen will once again headline the annual "Stand Up For Heroes" benefit at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden.
