Legendary rock'n'roll band The Rolling Stones have warned US President Donald Trump against using their songs at his campaign rallies.

According to a report in the BBC, the band's legal team said it was working with the performing rights organisation, the BMI, to stop the unauthorised use of their music.

"The BMI have notified the Trump campaign on behalf of the Stones that the unauthorized use of their songs will constitute a breach of its licensing agreement," the Rolling Stones rep added.

"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 Trump campaign used their song You Can't Always Get What You Want at last week's rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
