The White Stripes have issued their first statement as a band in quite a while in response to the use of “Seven Nation Army” in a pro-Trump video. The video in question was not created or endorsed by the campaign, but rather appears to be a fan-made video. Here’s what was posted to the White Stripes’ Facebook page earlier today:
Regarding the use of “Seven Nation Army” in a Donald Trump campaign video, The White Stripes would like to unequivocally state that they have nothing whatsoever to do with this video. They are disgusted by this association, and by the illegal use of their song.
Trump Triumphant @RealDonaldTrump
