When Donald Trump, president of the United States, tries to "make fun" of someone, it is not an attempt at humiliation, but a wake-up call because the leader of the most powerful nation in the world has taken the trouble to refer to a foreign subject. In addition, we know perfectly well that he always does it with superficial aspects such as physicality and sexuality, with political ideologies, or even sentimental life (we say this because of the scandal that arose between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson).
This is precisely what happened on the night of Thursday, October 10 when Trump during a rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after a campaign fight between Republican President Jacob Frey, the Democratic mayor of Minneapolis. First, Donald Trump used Prince Purple's "Purple Rain" as the entrance song, the most popular singer in this state that has become a kind of anthem for the population.RELATED
Although there were requests not to use the song, Trump ignored this, raising the anger of several social media users. Then, he began speaking to his audience, referring to Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign as part of the Democratic Party. It was here that the name of Beyoncé, her husband JAY-Z and Bruce Springsteen entered.
“I didn't need Beyoncé or JAY-Z. Don't need the little Bruce Springsteen ", emphasizing the" little one. " He said the musician, known as "The Boss", "only played two songs during the Clinton event and then left … and they all left with him. And Clinton kept talking in front of the same mediocre audience. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen in my life, ”he said in this way according to some media such as Variety.

Beyoncé is known to have supported the initiatives of Barack Obama during his two efforts as president of the United States, the first African-American to become the leader of this country. Therefore, it was not surprising that during the 2016 presidential campaigns, Beyoncé supported Hillary Clinton, who belongs to the Democratic Party and who seemed to take the lead in her speech on migration, among other things.
Bruce Springsteen is not exactly a Trump supporter. In 2018, he conducted an interview for Esquire in which he spoke about the president: “Trump has no interest in uniting the country, really, and in reality what he wants is the opposite and dividing us, which he achieves most of the time . That is simply a crime against humanity as far as I know. ”
Some social media users reacted to what they consider an "insult" to the three musicians, who lead their genre and their industry. Beyoncé and JAY-Z represent one of the most powerful marriages in the music industry while Springsteen is a legendary rock musician.
