This 28 June 2020 Reuters news agency video says about itself:
Rolling Stones threaten lawsuit over Trump’s music use
Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:
It is not the first time that the band has complained about the use of its songs. In 2016, Trump frequently used the Stones song You Can’t Always Get What You Want, and at the recent campaign meeting in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the classic resounded again.
Trump is not only opposed by the Stones. The family of Tom Petty, who died in 2017, has also objected to the use of his oeuvre in Tulsa. Petty’s I Won’t Back Down was played there.
Petty’s family says in a statement that the rocker and his descendants are fiercely against racism and discrimination. “Tom Petty would never have wanted one of his songs to be used for a campaign of hatred. He wanted to bring people together.”
Trump is not the only United States Republican politician with a history of abusing music.
As a 2016 post at this blog said:
The Rolling Stones are not the first musicians to complain about Trump. Also Adele (Skyfall) and Aerosmith (Dream On), Neil Young and REM were angry that their music was used during campaign meetings.
