The Daily Mail has reported that The Rolling Stones are threatening President Donald Trump with legal action over the use of the band's songs at his rallies despite their objections.

The classic Rolling Stones hit 'You Can´t Always Get What You Want' from 1969 can be heard many times at Trump's events throughout the country.

According to the Daily Mail report, the band's legal team is working with the BMI music rights organization to stop the use of their songs as part of President Trump's campaign.

In an official announcement the band wrote: 'The BMI have notified the Trump campaign on behalf of the Stones that the unauthorized use of their songs will constitute 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.´

This is not the first time the band has complained about the use of their songs. During the 2016 campaign, they expressed a similar objection.
