Bret Michaels talks Donald Trump, a Poison reunion in 2017 and more



Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Bret Michaels didn't say much about his old TV boss on The Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump.

"It's tough for me, because I never spoke a lot about politics in the past," said Michaels, 53, calling before his Dec. 29 concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall. "It doesn't mean I'm not involved, or I don't want a great president. I want the best person for the job, you know what I'm saying? It's not always about change. It's about taking what we've got — and we've got an awesome country; I love this country. I mean it. And I think if this is what it takes to take it up the next notch, then that's what we do. It'll be amazing.

"This is the facts: He is our president. We've got to have his back and go in there and negotiate. Let's make this country great. Let's take it up a notch."

Don't expect to hear Michaels talking much politics when he plays Clearwater with Lita Ford and Kip Winger. Click here for details on the show.
