Neil Young Sues Trump For His Songs

The famous singer said that his objections were ignored by the US President's team.

US President Donald Trump was on trial with a singer while continuing his election work as part of the presidential elections to be held on November 3, 2020.

Famous artist Neil Young sued President Trump for using his songs without permission at his rallies.

Young had warned the US President in his earlier letter.

The artist stated that Trump's songs "Rockin in the Free World" and "Devil's Sidewalk" were used without permission at the Tulsa rally.

Appealing to the Federal Court in New York, Young said in his petition:

"This complaint is not intended to disrespect the rights and views of American citizens who are free to support their chosen candidate. However, the plaintiff's conscience is comfortably that his music is a theme song for a campaign of divisive, anti-American ignorance and hatred. I can't allow that."

Stating that there has been frequent violations in Donald Trump's election campaigns since 2015, Neil Young stated that he demanded the highest amount of compensation: 

“The campaign team deliberately ignored the plaintiff's objections not to play his songs and continued to play even without their permission."

Neil Young demands up to $150,000 in damages for each violation. No statement has yet been made on the Trump front about what happened.

The request includes Trump's visit to the Tulsa, Oklahoma rallies and Mount Rushmore Memorial in June.

A similar situation occurred between Trump and The Rolling Stones and Quenn.
