He calls Donald Trump a “friend,” but Rod Stewart says that doesn’t mean the Republican presidential nominee should be occupying the Oval Office.

{mosads}“Although he’s a sort of friend of mine, I don’t think he’s presidential,” Stewart said on Tuesday, after being knighted by Prince William in London, according to the Daily Mail.

The British “Maggie May” singer added, “I don’t think he’s made to be a president.”

Stewart, 71, declined to weigh in on the 2016 presidential race when asked last year about it by Billboard magazine.

“I have strong political beliefs, and I don’t want to get into it,” Stewart said at the time. “Donald Trump happens to be a friend of mine.”
