Bono wants Africa and the EU to join forces against Trump and the US and »take over the world«

Prior to U2’s latest tour, Bono, U2’s frontman and co-founder, wrote an article in the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine.

In the article, which basically is a “love letter to the EU”, he is harshly criticising nationalists and “extremists”. And at the same time, he announces that the band will be waving an EU flag at all concerts throughout the tour.

This week he was invited to the European Parliament, where he held a speech and shared his views on world politics.

He propagated for internationalism and more cooperation with Africa, which, according to him I, is the future. “People are nervous about nationalism, I’m really excited about internationalism,” he said.

He also highlighted the explosive population growth in Africa, and that the continent soon will have two billion inhabitants, which, according to him, is fantastic.

“People are nervous about uncontrolled immigration, and I understand that, but I’m so excited about what’s happening on our neighboring continent. I see incredible opportunities.

There are nearly two billion people in Africa. As we grow older and gruyere, they grow younger and more vibrant,” he continued.
