Despite previous warnings during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump's team still played the Rolling Stones' You Can't Always Get What You Want at the president's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 20.
The Rolling Stones have threatened to sue Donald Trump for continuing to use their music at campaign rallies despite having received cease-and-desist orders in the past.More news: NY Reported Only 5 COVID-19 Deaths Saturday, Cuomo Says
The rock group appointed performing rights organisation BMI to help them in stopping Trump from using their song.
The Stones said in a statement Sunday that their legal team is working with music rights organization BMI to stop use of their material in Trump's reelection campaign.
BMI told Deadline that the Trump campaign has a "Political Entities License" that allows "the public performance of more than 15 million musical works in BMI's repertoire wherever campaign events occur".
The statement emphasized that if Trump continued playing their music, he would be subject to legal action.More news: USA intercepts Russian jets off Alaska
