The London-based group added that their legal team had already started working with a music rights organisation (BMI) to bar the POTUS from using their songs, ABC News reported.

The Rolling Stones revealed their team already warned Trumps team that continued use of their songs would translate to a breach of its licensing agreement.

If Donald Trump disregards the exclusion and persists, then he would face a lawsuit for breaking the embargo and playing music that has not been licensed, the group said.

In 2016, the group complained that the president was using their music to fuel his personal agenda which went against what they stand for.

They however did not threaten to sue or use any form of legal action at the time.

They opted not to have their music played during Trumps rallies and BMI informed the president about The Rolling Stones decision.

The teams spokesperson said if the US leader fails to heed to their demands, they would be forced to seek further legal action.

Trump often uses the bands 1968 classic You Cant Always Get What You Want as his walk-off song whenever he exits the stage.

When contacted, his team declined to comment on the issue.
