Kurt Cobain Predicted Donald Trump Presidency Back in 1993

Other Versions

In the end I believe my generation will surprise everyone. We already know that both political parties are playing both sides from the middle and we’ll elect a true outsider when we fully mature.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s not a business tycoon who can’t be bought and who does what’s right for the people. Someone like Donald Trump as crazy as that sounds. – Curt Cobain 1993

The Facebook post of ‘Trump Train’ did not mention any credible source of Kurt Cobain predicting Donald Trump Presidency. The mentioned reference article on Cool To Be Conservative website was published in Entertainment category, and the website does not carry any Disclaimer or Privacy Policy information.

Moreover, ‘Trump Train’ Facebook page has also been posting too good to be true stories related to UFOs and Giant Snake discoveries. Notably, there is no quote or saying from Kurt Cobain (who killed himself in 1994) to have suggested or predicted Donald Trump as President of USA in 1993. Such claims, therefore, are simply hoaxes.
