“Trump is saying Hitler-level things in public,” Legend said during a roundtable with other pop stars published by The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday. “And I feel like it’s dangerous for us to be complacent,” added Legend.

"It’s dangerous for us to think that it couldn’t happen to us like it happened to Germany in the ‘30s and ‘40s," he added.

“The world and America have done some atrocious things in the past, and we could do it again if we had the wrong leadership and if people of conscience don’t speak up.”

Last month, Legend said he believed a Trump presidency would be very "dangerous."

“I think, for this election particularly, we’ve seen one candidate have an entire campaign inspired by hate, and division, and racism, and misogyny, and his own narcissism,” he told Music Choice.

Legend also performed an October concert in Cincinnati aimed at getting out the vote for Clinton in Ohio.

Trump, though, carried Ohio no his way to winning the presidency.

Since the election, Legend hasn't been shy about sharing his views.

Last week, he also clashed with Democratic strategist David Axelrod over Trump.

“I think he’s an opportunist who exploited race and served racism, and that to me is more offensive,” Axelrod said on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

“That’s a distinction without a difference,” Legend shot back.
