Published

on

Before a campaign rally in Minneapolis, President Donald Trump’s campaign played the song “Purple Rain” by Prince.

Prince’s estate was livid, as the Trump campaign had promised they would never again play music by the artist.

“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 @Prince Twitter account posted.

“The Prince Estate will never give permission to President Trump to use Prince’s songs,” the statement vowed.

Included was a picture from lawyers representing Trump’s campaign vowing they they will “refrain” from using any Prince music — and specifically listing “Purple Rain.”

The Trump campaign is using the slogan, “Promises Made, Promises Kept.”

Reacting to the recently aired ABC News interview with Hunter Biden, in which the former vice president's son admitted that his family name had opened doors for him that might have otherwise been closed, McDaniel accused the Bidens of engaging in "obvious nepotism."

"Hunter Biden got $50K a month from a Ukrainian energy company, despite having ZERO experience in energy," she wrote. "His justification? That he was also on the board of Amtrak – more obvious nepotism. If that’s not the swamp, I don’t know what is!"
