The London based group added that their legal team had already started working with a music rights organization (BMI) to bar the POTUS from using their songs, ABC News reported.

Rolling Stones revealed their team already warned Trump’s team that continued use of their songs would translate to a breach of its licensing agreement.

“If Donald Trump disregards the exclusion and persists, then he would face a lawsuit for breaking the embargo and playing music that has not been licensed,” the group said.

In 2016, the group complained that the president was using their music to fuel his personal agenda which went against what they stand for.

They, however, did not threaten to sue or use any form of legal action at the time.

They opted not to have their music played during Trump’s rallies and BMI informed the president about Rolling Stones’ decision.

The team’s spokesperson said if the US leader fails to heed to their demands, they will be forced to seek further legal action.

When contacted, his team declined to comment on the issue.

Some weeks ago, Legit.ng reported that President Trump said the US will not have the number of Covid-19 cases it has now if it did not test.

The president said that the United States has an advanced form of testing unlike many countries around the world. He added that there are countries who always have high cases but do not talk about it like they do.
