“I don’t see anyone out there at the moment … the man who can beat Trump, or the woman who can beat Trump,” Springsteen told the paper. “The Democrats don’t have an obvious, effective presidential candidate.”

Springsteen praised the Democratic Party for taking back the House in last month’s midterm elections, but said he would “like to have seen a much more full-throated [rejection] of the past two years.”

“We’ve come too far and worked too hard,” he said. “Too many good people paid too high a price to allow this.”
