Donald Trump Hits Back at Neil Young over Song Use Controversy
The singer lashed out at the American presidential candidate for using "Rockin' in the Free World" as his announcement walk-out music last week. While Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders is now using the tune with Young's endorsement, Trump has finally hit back with a response to Young's disapproval.
Trump took to Twitter, claiming that Young recently approached him looking for money for "an audio deal" and invited him to his concert. Trump posted a photo of himself shaking the singer's hand alongside Young's signature on stock purchase agreement, calling the musician a "total hypocrite."
Trump also addressed the use of the song, saying that it was merely one of many songs used as "background music" and that he "didn't love it anyway."

.@Neilyoung A few months ago Neil Young came to my office looking for $$ on an audio deal & called me last week to go to his concert. Wow!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2015
.@Neilyoung's song, "Rockin' In The Free World" was just one of 10 songs used as background music. Didn't love it anyway.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 24, 2015
