Queen says Trump's use of 'We Are the Champions' was 'against our wishes'

Donald Trump to Queen: You're my best friend.

Queen to Donald Trump: We want to break free.

On the first night of the Republican National Convention on Monday evening, Donald Trump entered the arena in Cleveland backed by the music of Queen's iconic tune "We Are the Champions."

Twitter was quick to note that late Queen frontman Freddie Mercury would likely be against everything Trump stands for, and there is no way the band approved the song choice — and fans were correct.

This isn't the first time Trump has used the music of Queen without permission. Back in June, Queen's Brian May noted that permission to use “We Are The Champions” at a Trump campaign event “was neither sought nor given,” and also said it “has always been against our policy to allow Queen music to be used as a political campaigning tool."
