What in the WORLD could the Trump administration be thinking by playing ‘Purple Rain’ at their rallies? I mean what message is in that song that they think works in that situation?
Regardless, a Tweet from the late music legend’s estate says it’s happening. And they ain’t down with it.
“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 statement read.
The tweet included an October 2018 letter from Trump lawyer Jones Day that said the campaign would not use Prince’s music art any future events. That letter was in response to an initial claim from the Prince estate about one year ago that asked them not to play the song.
The estate made clear that the legendary singer-songwriter would not want his art used in a campaign event.
“The Prince Estate will never give permission to President Trump to use Prince’s songs,” the tweet read.
