Prince was extremely selective about how his music was distributed.
The crooner was notorious for having unathorized footage and performances removed from various platforms.
Trump has played Prince's classic single, "Purple Rain" during several of his controversial rallies.
Once Prince's estate got word of the unauthorized use of the song, the immediately issued a cease and desist.
Family spokesperson Omarr Baker took to Twitter revealing the update.

“The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or The White House to use Prince’s songs and have requested that they cease all use immediately.”
Before his death, Prince was known for yanking video footage of his performances and songs off of YouTube. He managed to keep his music off of streaming services, until he made a deal with Tidal after it launched.
Donald Trump has yet to comment.
