Neil Young ‘Reconsidering’ Suing Trump Over Use Of Songs

Neil Young is “reconsidering” suing President Donald Trump for using his songs at his political rallies.

Previously, Young has expressed his frustration and raised objections several times after Trump used his songs, including “Rockin’ in the Free World,” “Cowgirl in the Sand,” and “Like a Hurricane,” during his rallies.

Earlier this month, Young said in an open letter to Trump that he wouldn’t sue the President because he doesn’t want to distract the government as it is busy working to curb coronavirus pandemic.

“Because you are in charge of the Covid 19 response here in the USA, I will not sue you, (as certainly is my right) potentially distracting from your important work at hand protecting and saving American lives,” he wrote in the letter.

However, it seems that Young is now reconsidering his stance. In a new letter posted on his website, he wrote, “I am changing my mind about suing President Trump. Reconsidering. 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.”

“Trump has no respect for our military. They are now to be used on the streets of America against law-abiding citizens for a political charade orchestrated by a challenged president,” Young continued referring to the recent deployment of federal troops to control protesters.

“These are thugs with no IDs shooting Americans on the streets. They are not our police. Our police should arrest these untrained thugs for breaking our laws,” he added.
