Donald Trump’s campaign has received so many cease and desist letters from artists and their managers it is a wonder they manage to get any music to use for his events.


The latest to fire off a warning to the Trump campaign is the producer of the iconic 1997 movie ‘Air Force One’, Gail Katz, who is calling on the Trump campaign to cease using the movie’s score at his events.

Trump uses the music at campaign stops, recently at his acceptance of the Republican nomination, to push his brand as America’s President.

“The music for Air Force One was composed and conducted by the legendary Oscar-winning film composer Jerry Goldsmith,” Katz writes in a letter to the campaign.

“Jerry’s music was hijacked in a misguided attempt to associate Trump with the film and the President in that film.”

Another long time associate of the deceased composer, Richard Kraft, said Goldsmith would not have been pleased with the use of his score by the Trump campaign.

Here’s the letter fired off to Donald Trump…

Re: Usage of the theme from AIR FORCE ONE

Last week, Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump staged a publicity event by landing his helicopter in Cleveland to the powerful, heroic theme from the film Air Force One starring Harrison Ford.

The music for Air Force One was composed and conducted by the legendary Oscar-winning film composer Jerry Goldsmith. Jerry’s music was hijacked in a misguided attempt to associate Trump with the film and the President in that film. The Wall Street Journal recently identified Harrison Ford’s portrayal of the President in Air Force One as the #1 fictional President in film or television.

At no point were the filmmakers contacted to ask for permission to use Jerry’s music for the Republican campaign. We sincerely hope that Donald Trump and the Republicans do not use the Air Force One score in the future. It is a misappropriation of the music and the good will of the film, and we want to make sure that it does not imply any endorsement of the Republican ticket by the filmmakers.  

The Trump campaign’s misappropriation of songs and music over the repeated objections of authors and performers is just one more reason why on November 8 the American voters will send a clear message to Donald Trump – “Stay off our plane!”
