Dave Grohl has seen first-hand what other countries think of America now that Donald Trump is in the White House.
“I remember when we were touring in the Nineties, people would come up to me and still spoke of wanting to come to the US, to see Texas and see the desert, to walk around the Big Apple,” he told British GQ in an interview published Wednesday. “The American Dream was still tangible, still desirable.
