ROLLING STONES THREATEN TO SUE DONALD TRUMP....

One of the biggest rock bands in history is furious their music is being used for the President’s political ends, called 'a campaign of hate' by late singer Tom Petty's family.

The Rolling Stones are set to sue Donald Trump if he continues to play their songs at his rallies.

After four years of trying to stop him using their track You Can’t Always Get What You Want, the band is looking to the courts to enforce a ban.

Trump, who had a huge row with the group 31 years ago, plays the 1969 classic at the end of rallies. He has also used Stones hit Start Me Up before he arrives on stage. The band sent him a cease and desist letter in 2016, but it was ignored.

Sir Mick, 76, said previously You Can’t Always Get What You Want is a “weird” choice as a play-out song, calling it a “drowsy ballad about drugs in Chelsea”.

After the Tom Petty hit I Won’t Back Down was played at Trump’s rally nine days ago, the late singer’s family said he would never want one of his songs “used for a campaign of hate”.
