Donald Trump’s political campaign has been dealt a blow as there is one endorsement he has yet to secure: the right to use Adele’s music.
The property tycoon and TV personality has reportedly been using the British star’s songs in his political campaigns as part of his bid for the American presidency.
Republican candidate Trump, whose slogan is “Make America great again”, is reported to have been playing Adele’s hit Rolling In The Deep as “warm-up” music.
“Adele has not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning,” her spokesman confirmed.
He came on stage to the hit song during a rally held in Lexington, South Carolina, prompting BBC’s North America Editor Jon Sopel to comment on Twitter that it was an “unlikely combo”.
Donald is believed to be a fan of the Hello singer’s work and attended her concert in New York previously.
The controversial White House hopeful faced a backlash last year when Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler forced him to stop using the song “Dream On” during his campaign trail.
Trump responded on Twitter saying he had the legal right to use the song, but had found “a better one to take its place!”
He added: “Steven Tyler got more publicity on his song request than he’s gotten in ten years. Good for him!”
And to think he could have had it all…
Fans have expressed their disdain on Twitter:
