Who Hates Donald Trump? Jermaine Jackson And These Other Celebs

Donald Trump has made many enemies during his life. With his campaign being a complete circus for the 2016 presidential election, he has made even more enemies, but he doesn’t seem to have a problem with it. As his election wins and endorsements grow, so does his list of people whom want nothing to do with the presidential candidate.

Donald Trump claims he was a very close friend of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Trump told CNN he apparently got to know Jackson while he lived in the Trump Towers in New York City. He told CNN that he believed Michael Jackson began to grow weary of fame because of Jackson’s many surgeries.

“He was an unbelievably talented guy. He lost his confidence. And he lost tremendous confidence because of, honestly, bad, bad, bad surgery…And, you know, believe it or not, when you lose your confidence in something, you can even lose your talent.”

Donald Trump’s statements have set off the ire of the Jackson family. Michael Jackson’s brother, Jermaine, has been particularly vocal about Trump’s opinion and responded in a series of statements via Twitter.

Donald Trump is usually quick to snap back and have the last word but surprisingly he has yet to respond.

Donald Trump vs. Whoopi Goldberg

The hate between Goldberg and Trump started with his guest appearance on The View in March, 2011. The Hollywood Reporter states during his appearance, Trump was expected to talk about the success of his reality TV show The Apprentice. Instead, Donald Trump decided to flip the script and use The View as his personal political platform. He proceeded to discuss his “birther” theories about President Barack Obama, and wanting to see proof of his citizenship.

The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg became increasingly irritated at Trump’s comments. She finally had enough, and really let him have it by stating that Trump and others were just questioning the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s presidency because he is Black.

Trump provided a rebuttal, saying that his opinion was not about race and he is offended that Goldberg would even think such a thing. Since then, Goldberg has taken every opportunity to blast Trump and his political campaign.

At a presidential rally in Washington DC, the music of choice for Donald Trump was LIBERAL band R.E.M top charting song “Its The End Of The World…” The band was not happy to hear their song being used by Donald Trump, or in a political fashion. The Guardian reports that band frontman Michael Stipe issued a statement expressing his distaste in Donald Trump’s music choice.

“Go f**k yourselves, the lot of you – you sad, attention-grabbing, power-hungry little men, Do not use our music or my voice for your moronic charade of a campaign.”

Donald Trump did not respond to Stipe’s comment, but it brought up the topic of using music as an integral part of their political campaigns. More musicians are stepping forward and denouncing the use of their music, including musician Neil Young.

Donald Trump is not having luck with musicians. At his presidential rally launch, Trump used Neil Young’s song, “Keep On Rockin’ In The Free World.” That did not go over well with Neil Young and his camp. Shortly after the rally, Young issued a statement that Trump did not have permission to use the song for any purpose. The Guardian states Donald Trump lashed back very quickly, and labeled Young as a “total hypocrite.”

Not only did Trump seem to have permission to use the song (due to having a licensing agreement through ASCAP), but that Neil Young has borrowed money from Trump in the past.

Neil Young is a Canadian who has shown staunch support for American politicians in the past (currently showing support for Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders) insist that his meeting with Trump was business only as he wanted Trump to invest in Pono, his personal music service.
