Prince's Estate Comes After Trump for "Purple Rain" Use
Prince's estate has come out swinging against President Donald Trump for his use of "Purple Rain" at a campaign rally in the artist's hometown of Minneapolis last night (October 10).

In a tweet, Prince's representatives state the artist's estate "will never give permission to President Trump to use Prince's songs." It also includes a copy of a letter dated October 15, 2018, in which there is a clause that clearly stipulates Trump is not to use the song or any of Prince's music at campaign events.

"Without admitting liability, and to avoid any future dispute," the letter states, "We write to confirm that the Campaign will not use Prince's music in connection with its activities going forward."

Despite this stipulation, the Trump team has clearly gone back on its promise, as "Purple Rain" was indeed played at the rally. You can see footage below.
 
Whether Prince's estate plans to take legal action against the president is so far unclear.
