Following the post the music company Sony/ATV confirmed that the Trump camp never sought permission to use the rock song in a statement, according to another report.
“Sony/ATV Music Publishing has never been asked by Mr. Trump, the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization for permission to use “We are the Champions” by Queen,” the statement said. “On behalf of the band, we are frustrated by the repeated unauthorized use of the song after a previous request to desist, which has obviously been ignored by Mr. Trump and his campaign. Queen does not want its music associated with any mainstream or political debate in any country.”
“Nor does Queen want “We are the Champions” to be used as an endorsement of Mr. Trump and the political views of the Republican Party,” the statement added. “We trust, hope and expect that Mr. Trump and his campaign will respect these wishes moving forward.”
