U2 lead singer Bono is pretty sure America still hasn't found what it's looking for with Donald Trump. "Look, America is like the best idea the world ever came up with. But Donald Trump is potentially the worst idea that ever happened to America," Bono said in an interview with CBS This Morning on Tuesday.

Bono said Trump is "trying to hijack" the great idea that spawned America. "That idea is banded up in justice and equality for all," he said. "I think he's trying to hijack the idea of America. And I think it's bigger than all of us. I think ... this is really dangerous."
