Bruce Springsteen takes jab at President Trump during concert in Australia

Musician Bruce Springsteen was poking fun at President Donald Trump during a recent concert in Melbourne, Australia.



"We stand before you embarrassed Americans tonight," Springsteen told the crowd. "This is a song from 1965 from The Orlons that we are going to use to send a message back home. Don't Hang Up."



Springsteen was making a reference to Trump's recent disagreement with the Australian prime minister.



Trump and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull spoke by phone over the weekend, but the call ended earlier than scheduled. The president expressed frustration during the call over an Obama administration refugee deal with Australia.



The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.



Editor's Note: Despite Springsteen's reference to the song "Don't Hang Up" being from 1965, the song was actually from 1962.
