Cher says she’s unsure the U.S. will “be great” again in her lifetime because of the “damage” inflicted by President TrumpDonald TrumpBiden to sign executive order aimed at increasing voting access Albany Times Union editorial board calls for Cuomo's resignation Advocates warn restrictive voting bills could end Georgia's record turnout MORE.

“I know so many young people, [and] they don’t seem to care about certain things that they don’t notice” such as sexual orientation, the iconic singer said in an interview with The Washington Post published Tuesday.


As a young girl, Cher says she would often meet some of her mother’s gay friends.

“And I thought, ‘Why haven’t I met guys like this before? These guys are amazing [and] having so much fun,” Cher recalled.

“The more we get mixed, the more we are tolerant,” said the “Believe” singer.

“Eventually, it’s going to be great,” Cher, who’s slammed Trump before as a “f---ing traitor,” said. “But I don’t know if I’ll see it in my lifetime, because Trump has done so much damage and I’m not sure people really understand how deep the damage goes.”

The 72-year-old performer — poised to be one of several recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington on Sunday — also commented on the saying that the only ones to survive a nuclear war would be her and cockroaches.

Asked if she agrees with the prediction, Cher told the paper with a laugh and a sigh, “Not this one. I wouldn’t last through what [Trump] could do.”

“There’s no lasting,” she added. “Not even me. Not even cockroaches.”
