METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich says that he might consider returning to his native Denmark if Donald Trump wins the U.S. presidential election.
Speaking with Denmark’s Ekstra Bladet, Lars — who moved to the U.S. in 1980, when he was only 17 years old — said (translated from Danish): “I am a hundred percent Danish citizen, I pay taxes in the USA but I can’t vote in America.”
Asked whether he would move back to Denmark if Trump gets in the White House, Ulrich replied: “Yes, certainly sometimes I think about moving home to Denmark.
“I’ll stick to my Danish passport. If Trump becomes president and everything goes to shit, I might make my way to the airport and ask if I can get back in again.”
METALLICA frontman James Hetfield said in a recent interview with BBC 6 Music that his band stays away from topics like politics or religion in their music. He explained: “That just seems to polarize people even more. We all have our own beliefs, but at the end of the day, we’re trying to connect with people and it seems like political views don’t do that as much as music does.”
