In a tweet on Thursday night on behalf of the estate, Prince’s half-brother posted, “The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or The White House to use Prince’s songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately.”
A spokesperson for the estate told the AP a request had been made to the President to discontinue use of the song. A White House spokesperson referred questions on the topic to the campaign.
For some reason, Trump has been playing the song at his rallies, including last week in Southaven, Mississippi.
Rather than include a video of the song playing at the campaign, please enjoy this iconic performance by the man himself.
