Musician Billy Joel slammed President Donald Trump on Sunday blaming him for the “terrible” state of the US, Vice reported.

“When Trump said there were good people on both sides (in Charlottesville),” he said, “there are no good Nazis. There are no good Klu Klux Klan people.”

The performer compared the Neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville to a “war” and mentioned his own father who served in the Second World War.

Speaking about men of his father’s generation Joel asked “how do they keep from taking a baseball bat and bashing those crypto-Nazis over the head?”
