Former Pink Floyd star Roger Waters made his feelings about Donald Trump and Israel clear during a politically-charged performance in California.

The British 73-year-old blasted the Republican presidential candidate before endorsing the Boycotts of Israel.

Waters waited until near the end of his performance to voice his support for the Palestinian-led BDS movement. He said: “I’m going to send out all of my most heartfelt love and support to all those young people on the campuses of the universities of California who are standing up for their brothers and sisters in Palestine and supporting the BDS movement,” he said, “in the hope that we may encourage the government of Israel to end the occupation.”

As Waters performed the Pink Floyd song Pigs, Donald Trump’s face appeared on the massive video screen above the stage.
