The anticipated cease-and-desist letter from Rihanna's legal team would not be the first President Trump would be receiving, as a wide range of artistes have previously demanded that he does not use their music at his rallies.

Rihanna was not happy and wrote, "Not for much longer...me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up philip!"

This afternoon, White House Bureau Chief at The Washington Post Philip Rucker tweeted the fact that Rihanna's song, "Don't Stop the Music", was playing at a Trump rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

On Trump using her song, Rihanna said she would never be around one of those tragic rallies.

Target team members already have access to the "skip-the-line" checkout technology and will be testing it up until Black Friday. The company will also deliver Christmas trees this year and offer free shipping on any tree that costs $25 or more .

Earlier on Sunday, Rihanna weighed in on another primary race, endorsing Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum for Florida's governor.

"If you're exhausted of feeling like you don't matter in the political process", Rihanna wrote in an Instagram post.

Both artists took to social media to comment on Trump using their music, which was played at rallies over the weekend per Pitchfork. Just last week, Pharrell sent Trump a cease-and-desist letter for playing his song "Happy" at an event just hours after the deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 people dead. She urged her fans to vote in the midterm elections and to vote "yes" on Amendment 4, which would restore voting rights to Florida residents with felony convictions but have completed all terms of their sentence. "GNR like a lot of artists opposed to the unauthorized use of their music at political events has formally requested r music not b used at Trump rallies or Trump associated events", Rose wrote.
