Neil Young May Sue ‘Rogue President’ Donald Trump After All

Neil Young is not happy about what’s been going on in the United States due to Donald Trump’s actions. He’s so displeased, he revealed in a post on his Neil Young Archives Sunday (July 26) that he may take legal action after all against the former reality TV personality for using his music at rallies.

“I am changing my mind about suing President Trump. Reconsidering,” wrote the celebrated two-time Grammy winner, who had said earlier in July that he didn’t want a lawsuit to distract the president from properly responding to the coronavirus pandemic. “I’m looking at it again. There is a long history to consider and I originally considered it, deciding not to pursue. But then President Trump ordered thugs in uniform onto our streets. His idea. … This is all DJT.”

In recent weeks, Trump has deployed federal law enforcement to Portland, Ore., and has threatened to send them to other cities — including Philadelphia and Milwaukee — to quell unrest. As agents have taken Oregon protesters and put them in unmarked vehicles without saying why, local officials have denounced Trump’s orders, with Gov. Kate Brown of Oregon calling it “a blatant abuse of power.” The ACLU has also sued the Dept. of Homeland Security and U.S. Marshals Service over their actions in Portland.

“The US military is against these thug troops being here on the streets of America, attacking what our US military does,” Young continued, noting that veterans have joined Portland protesters to protect them. “They know they are not to be on the streets doing a rogue president’s bidding for his own political gain, harming innocent citizens who are legally protesting.”

“Imagine what it feels like to hear ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ after this President speaks, like it is his theme song,” the musician concluded. “I did not write it for that.”

Young, who announced in January he was finally a U.S. citizen after living here for more than five decades, recently criticized the president for playing the song during the Independence Day celebration at Mount Rushmore. “This is NOT ok with me,” he tweeted along with a video of the event at the time. Trump has also used the song previously during his presidential campaign.
