Singer and long-time Democrat Bruce Springsteen on Thursday said President Donald Trump "doesn't have a grasp of the deep meaning of what it means to be American."

"It's just frightening, you know? We're living in a frightening time," Springsteen said during an appearance on CBS "This Morning" when host Gayle King suggested a lot of people were concerned about the direction of the country.

"The stewardship of the nation is — has been thrown away to somebody who doesn't have a clue as to what that means . . . And unfortunately, we have somebody who I feel doesn't have a grasp of the deep meaning of what it means to be an American."

Trump mocked Springsteen on the campaign trail earlier this month, saying he did not need "Beyonce and Jay-Z.

"And I didn't need little Bruce Springsteen" to beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, he noted.

Trump mocked Springsteen in 2016 as well.

"So he's going back to 2016. And this is now 2019. You surprised that he's trash-talking you after all this time?" King asked Springsteen.

"Not really," Springsteen replied. "Anything's possible."
