As Trump walked off stage after a campaign rally in Minneapolis, thousands of Trump supporters in “Make America Great Again” gear began to hear Prince’s “Purple Rain” being played at the event.

Best believe, Prince’s Estate wasn’t too happy to hear this!

The Prince Estate posted a tweet to remind POTUS to stop using the late singer’s music.

“President Trump played Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ tonight at a campaign event in Minneapolis despite confirming a year ago that the campaign would not use Prince’s music. The Prince Estate will never give permission to President Trump to use Prince’s songs.” 

The tweet was posted with a letter. The letter, written by a lawyer, was dated nearly a year ago in response to a complaint from the Prince Estate. It said, “without admitting liability, and to avoid any future dispute, we write to confirm that the campaign will not use Prince’s music in connection with its activities going forward.”

The Trump campaign clearly failed to conform to the agreement. The Prince Estate has not indicated if they will take any legal action against the president or his team.

Rihanna, Neil Young, Adele, the Rolling Stones and Elton John are among many other artists who have objected to the use of their songs by the Trump campaign.
