Ex-QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE: DONALD TRUMP Will Probably Go Down As Worst President In U.S. History

Geoff Tate says that Donald Trump will probably go down as “the worst president” in U.S. history.

The former QUEENSRŸCHE singer made his comments while promoting the latest album from his OPERATION: MINDCRIME project, “A New Reality”.

He told Bobby Caughron, senior editor for XS Rock: “I haven’t been a fan [of Trump] so far. I think the worst president in my lifetime has been George W. Bush. Just a horrible presidency. And I think President Trump will probably beat that record and be the worst president in history. [Laughs]

“I wrote an interesting piece on this recently,” he continued. “We are stepping into a period of growth. As Americans, we are facing a full-frontal discussion on who we are. We are able now, with our advancements in communications, to communicate everywhere in the world all at once now. So we are witness to situations that are occurring everywhere and we’re commenting on them, testing our own perspectives and our belief system. We’re questioning it and drawing new lines.”

Tate added: “I think it’s a healthy thing, but it’s very frustrating, because we don’t really have an American identity. We came from all over the world from different countries and nationalities and we came to this country to worship the god of our choice and make lots of money. Those two situations don’t really align themselves to fulfill one’s identity. But here we are… trying to figure out who we are, what we believe and what’s right and what’s wrong.

“We’re now redrawing the lines for sexism in the workplace and those lines needed to be redrawn for a long time. In my lifetime, black people were persecuted, segregated and couldn’t vote. And in my grandmother’s lifetime, people were still slaves. At that time, it was okay to own somebody. Now we look at that and say, ‘Well, that’s ridiculous.’ How could that be? How could that have happened? How could people believe that? Go back even further to England an France and millions of people used to think that the King or Queen were holy. They believed that god, a god, some god, spoke to these people and told them that they were holy and that they needed to lead those people. And they somehow convinced millions of people that it was true. Now we look at it with 21st Century eyes and say, ‘What a bunch of idiots.’ How could they believe that stuff? Well, we’re in that same place now. We’re questioning our actions and belief systems and it’s testy.”

“A New Reality”, the third and final of a concept album trilogy from Tate‘s OPERATION: MINDCRIME project, was released on December 1 via Frontiers Music Srl.

Tate recently recorded a brand new song in support of charity. All proceeds from the track, which will be released later this month, will benefit MercyWatch, a nonprofit focused on outreach to the homeless community in Snohomish County, located in the U.S. state of Washington, where Tate lives with his family.

Tate will spend at least part of 2018 touring in celebration of the 30th anniversary of his former band’s “Operation: Mindcrime” album.
