Queen complained when Trump walked on stage to their anthem "We Are The Champions" during a Republican Party event in Cleveland, Ohio, in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

"There is a provision, however, that allows BMI to exclude musical works from the license if a songwriter or publisher objects to its use by a campaign. He liked to bring people together". The Canadian-born musician admonished Trump for using his 1990 single, "Rockin' in the Free World", in spite of earlier warnings.
