Tommy Lee doesn’t plan to stick around if Donald Trump is reelected.

The Mötley Crüe drummer — and frequent critic of the president — tells the U.K.’s The Big Issue that he’ll move back to his birthplace of Greece if Trump wins this November’s election.

“Dude, I swear to God if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the U.K.,” Lee says. “I’m out of here. I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to go Greece and get a house on one of the islands.”

“The thing that stings the most is that I feel like we’re embarrassing,” the drummer adds of the current administration. “I feel like people in Europe and the rest of the world look at America and think: ‘What the f*** are you guys doing over there? Stop voting for celebrities and get someone real to run the country.'”

Lee, who’s releasing a new solo album called Andro this Friday, has made his feelings about Trump very clear on his social media throughout the president’s term. Earlier this year, Lee trended on Twitter after he shared a scathing letter written to Trump by someone else titled “Dear F***ing Lunatic.”
