NEW YORK -- Bruce Springsteen is threatening to ditch New Jersey for Australia if President Trump is reelected -- but "The Boss" is pretty certain that it won't come to that.

"If Trump is re-elected, which he will not be - I’m predicting right now he’s gonna lose - if by some happenstance he should be, I’ll see you on the next plane," Springsteen said during a recent online roundtable with the Australian press.

Still, he said, "I love Australia. Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts."

Springsteen isn't the only musician to flirt with the idea of bolting from the States if Trump wins. Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee, a vocal opponent of the incumbent, recently drummed up controversy after expressing his intention to leave the country if Trump wins too.

The veteran rocker is currently promoting his new track, "Letter To You," a return to his New Jersey rock roots which is part of a 12 song upcoming album by the same name. The new record also sees Bruce reuniting with his E Street Band members for the first time since 2014.
