Neil Young isn't just a rock legend adored by many as one of the greatest songwriters of all time, but he's also a die-hard activist.
He's continuing that tradition with an open letter to President Donald Trump, in which the relatively new American citizen calls the President "a disgrace to my country."
Young posted An Open Letter to Donald J. Trump on his website on Tuesday.
It wastes no time eviscerating Donald Trump, opening with:
"You are a disgrace to my country. Bragging about the US economy does not disguise the fact that the numbers today are what you inherited almost 4 years ago.
Your mindless destruction of our shared natural resources, our environment and our relationships with friends around the world is unforgivable."
Young didn't stop there.
"The United States of America, my country, is not a green on one of your branded golf courses that you can ride around on and damage so that other players cannot shoot straight...I don't blame the people who voted for you. I support their right to express themselves, although they have been lied to, and in many cases believed the lies, they are true Americans. I have their back."
After chastising Trump for playing Neil Young's songs at his rallies, Young praised 2020 Democratic candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT).
"One of your opponents has the answers I like. He is aiming at preserving our children's future directly. He is not popular with the democratic establishment because unlike all the other candidates, he is not pandering to the industries accelerating Earth's Climate Disaster, the end of the world as we know it. He is truly fighting for the USA. His initials are BS. Not his policies."
Denizens of the internet agreed with Young.

Young ended the letter with:
"We are going to vote you out and Make America Great Again."
We can only hope.
