The Rolling Stones are threatening legal action against President Donald Trump's campaign for using their music at his campaign rallies.
No serious or talented musician wants their music played at President Donald Trump's rallies, which recently in Tulsa, had a lot of empty seats. Rihanna, Tom Petty's estate, and of all people, Trump's favorite musician, Neil Young, requested their music not be played at a Trump rally.
Tori be say di BMi don follow det warn di Trump campaign to stop to dey use dia music without permission say dem fit carr di campaing go court. The rocker's family released a statement saying they had issued a cease-and-desist, commenting, "Trump was in no way authorized to use this song to further a campaign that leaves too many Americans and common sense behind". Politicians usually try to use a loophole, putting the blame on the venue and not themselves.
Trump also used their songs during his 2016 campaign, and it prompted the band to complain.
"The Rolling Stones do not endorse Donald Trump", The Stones, which includes musicians like Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, had tweeted from their official Twitter account in 2016.
"BMI's Political Entities License was implemented about ten years ago to cover political campaigns", the spokesperson added while informing that Trump does hold the political entities' license but even that can be challenged.

Bolton elaborated further that Trump was "so focused on the re-election that longer-term considerations fell by the wayside". The book provides an insider account of Trump's "inconsistent, scattershot decision-making process", the publisher has said.
