The former Sex Pistols frontman has given a new interview in which he backs the President for another term and maintains his support for Brexit.

John Lydon has revealed he plans to vote for President Donald Trump in the upcoming US election.

The former Sex Pistols frontman has been known to back the 45th US President in the past and has even been spotted wearing a Make America Great Again t-shirt, but has now he's confirmed he'd vote for him too.
