The British rock band The Rolling Stones have soundly warned US President Donald Trump. The band stated that if Trump continued to use their songs “You Can Always Get You Want” at his rallies, he could face legal action.
According to a statement given to Deadline, the band hired rights organization BMI to stop the song from being used. The Rolling Stones’ official Twitter retweeted that “BMI has informed the Trump campaign on behalf of the Stones that the unauthorized use of their songs would violate its license agreement.”
The tweet further reads, ‘If Donald Trump disregards it and continues to use the song, he will face trial. We have not given them a license. “BMI has said that there has been no response from Trump’s lawyers yet.
Earlier this month, the family of rock musician Tom Petty was asked to hold off at a rally on June 20, releasing a letter by Trump on the use of their song, I What’s Back Down. His family posted an open letter on Twitter stating that the late singer “would never want the song used for the hate campaign”.
