Popstar Barbra Streisand has bashed President in a new song entitled ‘Don’t Lie To Me’ that will be a part of her new album ‘Walls’ – her first project in 13 years featuring mostly original tracks.

In the new song, Streisand accused of not caring “when the world is burning”. The lyrics go: “How do you when the world keeps turning? All that we built has come undone/How do you when the world is burning?/Everyone answers to someone.”

Known for her strong left-wing politics, Streisand told the AP that she initially wanted to create something “very subtle” but that she could not control herself and went blazing instead: “I just went ballistic. I just can’t stand what’s going on. His assault on our , our institutions, our founders — I think we’re in a …We’re in a war for the soul of .”

Revealing that she was motivated to write the song after listening to news which “was making me sick, listening to lies, listening to things that are such craziness,” Streisand said:

“I wanted to talk about the things that were making me feel so sad, heartbroken,” she said. “I’m a kind of fierce American. I don’t know who we are anymore as a country. Are we embracing people who flee oppression? Or are we separating from parents, putting them in cages?

“I don’t know if people care about the planet, the survival of the planet. Do they care about clean air? Clean ? Clean ? If they do, how could they for somebody like Trump, who believes ’s a hoax? I’m frightened for this country. And yet, I have hope.”

She added that she dedicated her album to the young people who are protesting Trump and what he represents:

“It’s important that people vote. It’s important that people believe in the of their own voice and how much that changes things. It’s like the kids speaking out, the Parkland kids. It’s easy to feel powerless now but we’re not if each of us speak up and get out and vote.”

Streisand’s distaste for is well known. Last year, she was criticised by Trump supporters after she seemingly blamed the President for making her gain weight when she tweeted: is making me gain weight. I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!”
