Outspoken rocker and President Donald Trump supporter Ted Nugent vowed Thursday to give up using "hateful rhetoric" in his political remarks, declaring "we've got to be civil to each other."

Phoning in to the "Curtis & Eboni" show on 77 WABC radio, Nugent – who has made venomous and threatening remarks about Democrats in general, and former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in particular – said he is "going to back it down."

"We've got to be civil to each other," he said. "The whole world is watching America. . . . We have got to be respectful to the other side. . . . I'm going to back it down, I'm not going to engage in that kind of hateful rhetoric anymore."

The vow comes just a day after an anti-Republican gunman opened fire at a baseball game practice for congressional Republicans, critically injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalese, R-La.

"We've reached critical mass," the Detroit-native said. "I have re-evaluated my approach . . . but at the tender age of 69 my wife has convinced me I cannot use those harsh words."
