Donald Trump is one of many Republican candidates for the presidency of the USA (most of them with lots of money). Like many candidates, he chose a campaign song. And, like many politicians (especially Republicans, like Michelle Bachmann or John McCain) he chose a song which the musician who wrote it did not want him to use.
Trump continued the same way.
From daily The Guardian in Britain today:
The [United States Republican party presidential candidates‘ polls] front-runner [Donald Trump] also came under fire from REM lead singer Michael Stipe, who lambasted the Trump campaign for using one of the group’s songs at a rally on Wednesday.
In a series of tweets posted on the account of bandmate Mike Mills, Stipe said: “Go fuck yourselves, the lot of you – you sad, attention-grabbing, power-hungry little men.
“Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.”
Trump had arrived on stage to It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine).
According to that Guardian article, Donald Trump also attacked fellow Republican presidential candidate Carla Fiorina. Not, like a rational Fiorina critic might do, because she made a mess of being CEO of Hewlett-Packard, sacking 30,000 U.S. workers, and fleeing away from the mess by US$21 to 40 million golden parachute. No, Trump being Trump, he resorted to sexism. He attacked Ms Fiorina, the only woman among seventeen Republican candidates, for being a woman.

One of the leading Republican presidential candidates declared Sunday that a Muslim should never be allowed to become president of the United States. Speaking in defiance of the US Constitution, which explicitly prohibits religious tests for holding political office, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said on the NBC News program “Meet the Press” that being a Muslim should disqualify a candidate for the top position in the federal government: here.
