Jack White has dedicated ‘Icky Thump’ to Donald Trump, as he performed the seminal White Stripes track during a recent festival appearance.
As he headlined New York’s Governors Ball on Friday, White used the track to deliver a powerful attack against the President.
After singing the song’s second verse, (which features the lyrics “White Americans, what/ Nothing better to do/ Why don’t you kick yourself out/ You’re an immigrant too/ Who’s using who/ What should we do?/ Well, you can’t be a pimp/ And a prostitute too”), White added: “That’s for you, Trump! You can’t be a president and a prostitute, too, Trump!”
He then repeatedly sang the phrase “Icky Trump.”

White’s stinging attack of Trump comes after he proved himself to be a vocal Trump critic during his unexpected Presidential victory in 2016.
At the time, The White Stripes sold ‘Icky Trump’ t-shirts online.
