Speaking at a Q&A session after a New York screening of his concert film Us + Them, Roger Waters said the United States is a "fool's hell" and described President Donald Trump as a "tyrant."

When the moderator said he was moved to see children all over the world getting the message that they're not alone, Waters responded, "Funnily enough, they are [connecting to that message], but unfortunately not f**king here."

"Because if they were, you wouldn't have Donald Trump as a president, you wouldn't be having all this nonsense with the Democratic primaries, with them trying to destroy the only candidate who can possibly win against Donald Trump, [Bernie] Sanders," he added.

"We're living here in a fool's hell," according to the Pink Floyd founder. "The United States of America is not a fool's paradise; it's a fool's hell."

Referring to Trump, Waters said, "And this is a man who has failed at f**king everything in his life except becoming the biggest … tyrant and mass murderer and mass destroyer of everything that any of us might love or cherish in the whole [world], only because he has the power."
