British singer Morrissey said in a new interview he would kill President Trump if given the option.

During an interview with Der Spiegel, Morrissey, the former The Smiths frontman, was asked: “If there was a button here and if you pressed on it, Trump would die dead [sic]– would you push it or not?”

The musician responded that he would push the button.

“I would, for the safety of humanity," Morrissey said. "It has nothing to do with my personal opinion of his face or his family, but in the interest of humanity I would push.”

During the interview, Morrissey also accused the American media of helping Trump.

"Whether they criticize him or laugh at him, he does not care, he just wants to see his picture and his name," he said.

"The American media have shot themselves in the leg."

The pop star added that since Trump assumed the presidency, he has "exhausted the world."

"He grabs after everything like a little child," he said.

"He is not a leader. He is a vermin."
