Bruce Springsteen Releases Anti Trump Protest Song With Joe Grushecky

Rock legend Bruce Springsteen has released a new anti-Trump protest song called “That’s What Makes Us Great.”

Springsteen joined with frequent collaborator Joe Grushecky on the track.

Grushecky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that he wrote the song after Trump took office in January. 

“I had this song, and Bruce and I had been talking," Grushecky said. "I sent it to him and he liked it. I said, ‘What do you think about singing on it?’ He gave it the Bruce treatment.”
