The candidate had used their famous song “We Are the Champions” at the Republic Convention during the moment he stepped on stage.

Queen tweeted on their official account they were unhappy about Trump’s use of the song on Tuesday: “An unauthorized use at the Republican Convention against our wishes.”

Trump had used Queen’s music before to which the band repeatedly asked him not to. In addition, during last month, Queen guitarist Brian May wrote a blog post protesting the use of the song by the Trump campaign.
