The Brazilian heavy metal band Sepultura singer Derrick Green, who joined the band in 1998 just 4-year after their forming, broke silence on the 2020 election and shared his honest opinion on Donald Trump.
Just a week ago, it was officially announced that Joe Biden won the 2020 election against the 45th president of the US, Donald Trump, and became the 46th president of the United States.
Recently, Derrick Green spoke to Self Umpunishment to share his thoughts about the election and touched on Donald Trump’s failure. When he mention Donald Trump’s failure, Derrick said that he made a lot of mistakes to led his own demise and explained why he said those words.
“I wasn’t that surprised when [Donald] Trump won. I was like, ‘Oh, yeah. It seems like that’s the way things are gonna go.’
“There’s a lot of mistakes that really led to his own demise. It really was all him. There are a lot of people around him that were just, like, ‘What are you doing?’ They really were on top of things. They had the Senate, they had a large amount of people voting consistently, they had a very strong group for a while. But he just continued to drive it into the ground, it seemed – where it’s just, like, enough is enough.”
Derrick concluded by touching former president Barrack Obama.
“Nobody knowing really what’s gonna happen day to day, even his own party. You’ve gotta feel that they have had enough too. They didn’t realize that he would be such a cult figure, which is really outrageous. I think there was maybe a backlash from Obama being so powerful. They were, like, ‘We need our figure. We need our person.’ It just ended up in shambles, and it’s still continuing on.”
Sepultura has recently announced that they have been confirmed for the ‘Tons of Rock’ music festival, which will take place from 24th till 26th June 2021 in Oslo.
