Jagger, Among Others, Sent Cease and Desist Orders To Trump
The soon to be former US President receives plenty of Cease and Desist Orders for his usage of artist’s music. The Rolling Stones sent multiple cease and desist directives to Trump. He began playing their songs including ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ at events on his 2016 presidential campaign.
Although Trump did stop using songs from the Rolling Stones, he continued to receive similar issues from other bands.
It was claimed that Trump adhered to the order and instead began to close his rallies with Village People’s ‘YMCA’.
In September 2019, Mick Jagger also accused Trump of playing down the seriousness of climate change.
“We are in a very difficult situation at the moment, especially in the US, where all the environmental controls that were put in place – that were just about adequate – have been rolled back by the current administration so much that they are being wiped out,” Jagger said.
“The US should be the world leader in environmental control but now it has decided to go the other way.”
