Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose has criticised Donald Trump for appointing Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General.
The position makes Sessions a member of Trump’s Cabinet, as well as the chief law enforcement officer and chief lawyer of the US government.
The Alabama Senator is known for his staunchly conservative views. He supported Trump’s election campaign pledge to “build a wall” between the US border and Mexico. The BBC reports that he was denied a position as a federal judge in 1986 for alleged racist remarks.
Responding to Sessions’ appointment on Twitter, Rose wrote: “Good people don’t listen to, acknowledge, nominate or elect people like Senator Jeff Sessions.”

Vince Neil, former frontman of another legendary hard rock band, Motley Crue, revealed yesterday (November 18) that he has been booked to perform at Trump’s inauguration.
The rapper, who himself is a favourite to become the next President in 2020, was performing in San Jose when he made the shock announcement. “I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?” he said to the crowd. “But if I would have voted, I would have voted for Trump.”
Kanye went on to launch several speeches on the subject throughout the evening, claiming that he “loved” Trump’s debate style and liked how he forced racists to “reveal themselves.” He also predicted that this is just “the beginning”.
Reality TV star Paris Hilton has also come out as a Donald Trump supporter in a recent interview.
