WATCH: Bono stages ‘interview’ with Donald Trump during live U2 concert in the US
Bono doesn't hold back.
Bono has never been shy about becoming engaged in concerns of a political matter and he threw himself head-first into the US Presidential election in California on Wednesday night.
U2 were performing at the dreamforce event in San Francisco when, during a rendition of ‘Bullet the Blue Sky,’ Bono engaged in a ‘pseudo conversation’ with Republican candidate Donald Trump, whose distinctive mug appeared on a big screen on stage.
Bono was not actually talking to Trump in person, but was responding to some of his more controversial statements, particularly on immigration, which played on the big screen behind him.

“Now candidate, you understand it’s not just Mexican people who are going to have a problem with this wall of yours,” Bono roared.
“It’s everyone who loves the idea of America, like the Irish, for example. Or the French. Or the Brazilians. Everyone who loves the idea of America. Everyone who believes what they read at the foot at the bottom of the Statue of Liberty.”
Not your run-of-the-mill interview, perhaps, but nothing in the 2016 US Presidential Election ceases to amaze at this stage.
