It's clear liberals still don't understand why Hillary Clinton lost the election to President-elect Donald Trump.

Musician John Legend said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine that he plans to remain "vigilant" throughout Trump's presidency, fearing that Trump will dismantle President Barack Obama's progressive accomplishments.

"So we have to be ready to tell the truth and reflect what's going on,” Legend said in the interview. “We've gone through some really dark periods in this country. You can't trivialize them, because they cost people their lives, but we have made progress since those times, and even when we go backward, there's definitely an opportunity for us to go forward again."

"We just have to be vigilant and get through this, and then hopefully it'll be over soon," he added. "It's a very kind of different world now, knowing that someone's going to possibly dismantle a lot of what Obama accomplished."

Legend went on to explain that he doesn't really know where Trump will take the country over the next four years, but he did say there was at least one thing or two that he was sure about.

"[Trump has] been consistent about being a racist and about a couple of other things, but he's also been wildly inconsistent and lied a lot," Legend said.

When asked by the interviewer if he believes Trump will take America to war, Legend responded: "Possibly. He’s truly reckless."

Throughout Trump's campaign for the White House, Legend has been staunchly outspoken in his opposition to Trump. He even performed a concert during a Clinton campaign rally last October.

In addition to saying that he believes Trump is a "racist," Legend has previously compared Trump to Nazi Germany leader Adolf Hitler.
