Donald Trump Fires Back At Neil Young

When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for president last week, Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World” played as he walked onto the stage at Trump Tower. Neil Young didn’t like that, duh, and he wrote a whole long statement explaining exactly why he didn’t like that (it’s pretty much exactly the reasons you’d expect). Trump’s campaign manager said that they wouldn’t be using any of Young’s music in the future, but today, as Pitchfork reports, Trump fired back at Young in a series of tweets, calling him a “total hypocrite” for criticizing Trump after asking him for Pono funds.

See that, Neil! Donald Trump doesn’t even like your stupid song anyway. Senator Bernie Sanders, who Neil Young has officially endorsed for president, used “Rockin’ In The Free World” at a recent rally, despite Young’s claim that “I make my music for people not for candidates.”
