The letter comes after the pop star vowed to stop President Trump from playing her songs at future rallies.

She's not the first artist who's been forced into blocking the President from using their music.

Rucker said the song was played while aides tossed Trump T-shirts into the crowd, as is commonly done at baseball games.

Rihanna called Mr Trump's rallies "tragic" and said he would not be using her music "for much longer".

The Bajan beauty spread her message on social media, focusing on the race for Florida governor in an Instagram post and tweet endorsing Andrew Gillum.

His attorney Howard King wrote, "On the day of the mass murder of 11 human beings at the hands of a deranged "nationalist, ' you played his song 'Happy" to a crowd at a political event in IN".

President Donald Trump may have to find a new song at his rallies.

Axl Rose isn't alone in his fight to try and stop Trump from using his music.

In 2015, the singer's legal team warned Trump, then a Republican presidential candidate, over his use of "Dream On".

While he has specified he doesn't take any issue of Trump supporters listening to their music, he does, however, take issue with Trump using their music during a rally without the band's permission.

"Although a BMI spokesperson stated that doing so "would not be appropriate, ' the use of a song as random backdrop music as opposed to a campaign's 'theme music" may alter the analysis", he wrote. Both expressed annoyance that Trump has recently played their music at his rallies.

Rihanna's withering put-down of the Trump gatherings as "tragic rallies" went down brilliantly on Twitter, with the diss racking up over 346,000 likes on Twitter at the time of writing.
