Barbra Streisand stated that she “can’t live in this country” if former President Donald Trump secures a second term in 2024, expressing her belief that President Joe Biden has “done a good job.”
“I will move. I can’t live in this country if he becomes president,” Streisand told late-night host Stephen Colbert during an interview on The Late Show after being asked about her opinion on the possibility of a second Trump administration.
After Colbert asked about her alternative residence if not in the United States, the singer of “Woman in Love” responded, “Probably to England. I like England.”
Streisand continued by stating that the political climate in the United States is “bad.”
“Well, I like Biden. I think he’s done a good job,” she added.
“I think he’s compassionate. He’s smart. He supports the right things,” she continued.
The Grammy-winning artist also addressed Colbert’s question about the increase in antisemitism in the United States.
“It’s so sad,” she said. “It’s so sad what’s going on today — meaning, people have to live together, even though they have different religions or whatever. People are people. It’s true. You know, we all want the same thing. We all want love in our hearts, we all want family.”
“We all want to feel secure. I hope for the best because this is heartbreaking, what’s happening now with these people — the children, the mothers — it doesn’t matter what religion they are. Do you know what I mean? This is beyond religion. This is insanity for us not to learn how to live together in peace,” Streisand continued.
“You see, this is why it’s hard to talk about my career or even my book when this deadly combustible thing is happening in the world,” she added.
“I could easily cry about this. Where is God in this time? Where is he or she? Why can’t that energy stop this madness?” Streisand asked.
Streisand had a conversation with Colbert about her latest memoir, titled “My Name is Barbra.”
In her book, Streisand called President Trump “completely unfit” to be commander in chief while simultaneously praising her friends Bill and Hillary Clinton as “the most appealing couple.”
