Rocker Tommy Lee is vowing to leave the United States if President Trump wins reelection.

“Dude, I swear to God if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the U.K.,” Lee said in an interview published this week in The Big Issue.

“I’m out of here. I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to go Greece and get a house on one of the islands,” Lee, who was born in Athens and raised in California, added.

The 58-year-old Mötley Crüe drummer told the magazine that having the former “Celebrity Apprentice” star as commander in chief makes the U.S. “embarrassing” for the rest of the world.

“I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: ‘What the f— are you guys doing over there?’ ” Lee said. “Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country.”

Back in 2016, dozens of celebrities pledged to flee the country if Trump won the presidential election. Former “Girls” actress Lena Dunham said at the time, “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver.”

Miley Cyrus wrote of Trump in a 2016 Instagram post: “I am moving if he is president.”
