Apparently during a Rolling Stones comeback tour back in 1989, Trump sponsored one of their shows at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall. However, the Stones didn’t want Trump involved in its promotion – in fact, they didn’t even want him at the show. Because yes, Trump was a money-grabbing tyrant even before he became President and then had enemies from a very young age.

Despite this, Trump ended up turning up to a press room in the next building to the band. Tour manager Michael Cohl said:

I get word that I have to come to the press room in the next building. I run to the press room in the next building and what do you think is happening? There’s Donald Trump giving a press conference, in our room!

After Trump left, he then came back five minutes later and let’s just say, Keith was not happy about it. Cohl said:

He pulls out his knife and slams it on the table and says, ‘What the hell do I have you for? Do I have to go over there and fire him myself? One of us is leaving the building – either him, or us.’

Trump, understandably, left the room. Trump might be the President of the United States, but no one fucks with Keith Richards.
