Last week the president of the United States, Donald Trump, joined Triller, an American video platform that aims to become a competitor for TikTok. But what initially started as part of the president’s controversy with the popular Chinese social network, soon moved to another area of Trump’s controversies.
It turns out that earlier this week the Trump campaign uploaded a video to Triller with the song. “We Will Rock You” de Queen. The 1977 theme is certainly one of the most iconic of the band and since its launch it has been used in dozens of films, series and commercials. However, Trump’s political use of the issue is not something the group welcomes.
According to the BBC, a Queen spokesperson stressed that the band “Has repeatedly opposed the Trump campaign” and he wants the American politician to stop using his themes.
But preventing Trump from using Queen songs would not be easy and the band’s management qualifies that mission as one. “Uphill battle.”
After all, this is not the first time that Trump has used a song from that group to promote his policies and, for example, in 2016, he took the stage of the Republican National Convention with “We are the Champions” as background music.
In that minute Queen declared that he disagreed with the unauthorized use of his song.
“We are frustrated by the repeated unauthorized use of the song after a prior request to desist, which has obviously been ignored by Mr. Trump and his campaign,” commented at that time the band through a statement.
But it seems that these copyright complaints do not matter much to Trump and although last year a video where he used “We will Rock You” was removed from Twitter for copyright, the president of the United States insisted again on occupying the subject and even now the video has not been deleted from your Triller account.
