Musician John Fogerty lashed out at President Trump on Friday and said
he is issuing a cease and desist order over the president’s campaign
using the famous Creedence Clearwarer Revival song “Fortunate Son” at events.
“I object to the President using my song, ‘Fortunate Son’ in any
way for his campaign. He is using my words and my voice to portray
a message that I do not endorse,” the rock icon shared in a statement
“Therefore, I am issuing a ‘cease and desist’ order. I wrote this song because, as a veteran, I was disgusted that some people were allowed
to be excluded from serving our country because they had access to
political and financial privilege. I also wrote about wealthy people
not paying their fair share of taxes.”
Fogerty added that “Mr. Trump is a prime example of both of these
issues. The fact that Mr. Trump also fans the flames of hatred, racism
and fear while rewriting recent history, is even more reason to be
troubled by his use of my song."
