Donald may not know who the Klan are, but his dad certainly did. He was arrested at a KKK rally in 1927.
In ‘Django’ the ‘D’ is silent. Unlike Donald.
David Bowie – China Girl
“China China China… China” – Donald Trump likes China.

Trump enjoys this one, long as it stays there.
Pink Floyd – Money
Possibly one of Trump’s favourites, not sure if it’s anything to do with the 7/4 time signature, though.
Gorillaz – Kids With Guns
“Hey kids, keep your shoulders narrow, firm grip on the stock, and pull the trigger. Great job!”
Brian Jonestown Massacre – Thank God For Mental Illness

The Style Council – Walls Come Tumbling Down!
“I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me —and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall.”
Skrewdriver – White Power
Johnny Rebel – In Coon Town
He rarely visits for long, but when he does…

The lyrics of this song would really speak to Donald. “All I do is win, win, win no matter what. Got money on my mind, I can’t ever get enough.”
Thomas Dolby – The Flat Earth
Much like ‘flat Earth’ believers, Trump is an idiot.
ABBA – The Winner Takes It All
To the know-it-all fanatic, winning is everything: “The winner takes it all
The loser’s standing small”.
Guns’N Roses – One In A Million
…which are exactly your chances of surviving a nuclear holocaust if Trump becomes President.

“Oh life, is bigger/Is bigger than you”… Donald Trump almost put money in the Communion plate at a church in Iowa

TRUE FACT: at his eldest son’s bar mitzvah, Donald had this song on constant repeat, back to back with Crass’s ‘How Does It Feel (To Be The Mother Of A Thousand Dead)’.
Bruce Springsteen – Born In The USA
Or, as Trump’s family like to sing it, “Born in Slovenia…”

Put this song on and envisage Donald Trump wearing a party hat, waving an American flag around, eating cake and wearing a badge that says ‘NO.1’ on it. You’re welcome.
Pussy Riot – A Punk Prayer
Woody Guthrie – This Land Is Your Land
