Donald Trump’s run for the White House hit its first snag even before Trump made his announcement.
As Trump made his way to the podium, speakers blared out Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.”
Young wasn’t too impressed when he was told about it He said the republican candidate had used his song without seeking permission and he wants to make sure no one thinks he is a Trump fan or Republican supporter.
It was the second disappointment for Young this week.
A benefit concert he was to have performed in Edmonton has been cancelled.
A spokesman for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation says the delay is due to internal management issues.
Young began playing the benefit shows last year after a visit to Fort Chipewyan and the oilsands region.
