George Harrison’s estate hits out at ‘offensive’ use of Beatles track by Donald Trump’s daughter

Trump has previously angered Queen, Neil Young, Adele and The Rolling Stones for his music choices

George Harrison‘s estate has condemned Donald Trump and the US Republican party for use of The Beatles‘ classic ‘Here Comes The Sun’ at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

The song in question featured on the Fab Four’s 1969 album ‘Abbey Road’ and was penned by Harrison. It was played to accompany Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, onto the stage as she introduced her father.

“The unauthorised use of ‘Here Comes the Sun’ at the RNC is offensive & against the wishes of the George Harrison estate,” a tweet from Harrison’s official Twitter account read.

Harrison’s estate later added humorously: “If it had been [Harrison’s 1970 solo track] ‘Beware of Darkness’, then we MAY have approved it! #TrumpYourself”.

Trump’s choice of music during his US Presidential campaign has proved controversial since the beginning, previously angering Queen, Neil Young, Adele, The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith and R.E.M.

Earlier this week, Queen said in a statement that they are “frustrated” at Trump’s “repeated unauthorised use” of ‘We Are The Champions’.
