Metallica’s guitarist Kirk Hammett has made negative statements many times about the new United States president Donald Trump. He spoke in an interview with Bilboard on November 10, 2016 and said:

“I’m just waiting to get into a personal Twitter war with him. I’m just waiting.”

Now, Hammett did what he said. He launched a war on Twitter against Donald Trump. Kirk shots off a series of tweets urging fans to “reject American carnage” and “defend American democracy”. He said in the tweets:

“Trump’s inaugural address and his asking us to put America first sounds, to me, familiar to what was said in speeches going around in Germany in the 1930’s and later Russia in the 1940’s. Pay attention people!

Stand up for truth, compassion and togetherness. Don’t settle for anything less. Reject lies, fear mongering, misguided anger. The system wants us divided, so it’s easier to control us emotionally. We are all in this together, like it or not we need each other to overcome the bigger threat.”
