No, Trump hasn’t been the best president for Black America since Lincoln

  No, Trump hasn’t been the best president for Black America since Lincoln Here’s what Trump has — and hasn’t — done for Black communities in the past four years.Over the past year, Trump has shouted this from the lectern at campaign rallies and from the balcony at the White House as a play to Black voters, a countermessage to his racist rhetoric. The phrase has morphed over time, starting in the fall of 2019 as something more restrained — “We’ve done more for African Americans in three years than the broken Washington establishment has done in more than 30 years” — and rising to the bold “No president has done more for our Black community” this year.

Donald Trump 's presidency and campaign has seen several musicians and bands declaring they do not want their music played at his events. Pop superstar Adele is another artist who opposed Trump using her music at his events. The "Hello" singer said she never gave the then-candidate

Here are all the musicians who have spoken out against President Trump using their music at his rallies — including Neil Young. Many artists and their teams have even sent cease-and-desist notices, which are essentially warnings that demand a specific action be stopped or else legal action

The once secret princess of Belgium has met former king Albert for the first time since her legal battle to be accepted as his daughter.

A photograph released by the palace today shows Princess Delphine de Saxe-Cobourg sitting smiling alongside Albert II and his wife Queen Paola in their home, Castle Belvédère, in Laeken on Sunday.

The meeting was described by the palace as a time of 'forgiveness, healing and reconciliation' after the lengthy court battle.

Princess Delphine, 52, was officially recognised as the love child of Belgium's former king on October 1.

  Music's most celebrated—and most notorious—managers Managing a successful rock band or music act takes an eye for talent, thick skin, savvy business acumen, and a good deal of charisma. For the most part, music management has produced some truly gifted individuals, genuine people with their clients' best interests at heart. But the profession has also reared an ugly collection of scheming opportunists who care little for those they represent and are only interested in lining their own pockets.

Trump’s constant attacks on Kristen Welker show he doesn’t expect the debate to go well

  Trump’s constant attacks on Kristen Welker show he doesn’t expect the debate to go well The Trump campaign has been whining about anything and everything related to the second presidential debate.That’s why in the lead-up to Thursday’s second and final debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, Trump has preemptively attacked moderator Kristen Welker of NBC almost every day. That’s why his campaign has made such a big fuss over the debate topics and the addition of a mute button designed at making the debate more watchable than the first one was thanks to Trump’s antics. And that’s why they’ve seemed to be spinning a bad showing before the debate has even happened.

Their 1969 classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” had served as the unlikely closing song at many The extensive list of artists who ’ve called out the president’s use of their songs reads like a Unsurprisingly, the Trump campaign has tended to play whatever it wants even after artists complain.

'These are the first step in a path that we will walk in peace. Delphine, Paola and Albert.'

It comes after the princess met her half-brother King Philippe for the first time earlier this month.

The monarch said it was a 'warm meeting' which took place at the Castle of Laeken on Friday October 9.

Artist Princess Delphine, 52, formerly known as Delphine Boël, is thought to be the result of an 18-year affair between the former monarch, 86, and Belgian aristocrat Sybille de Selys Longchamps, 79, that began in the 1960s.

4 winners and 5 losers from the last Biden-Trump debate

  4 winners and 5 losers from the last Biden-Trump debate Joe Biden was a winner — as was moderator Kristen Welker.The first debate was a chaotic disaster thanks to Trump’s constant interruptions; the second one didn’t happen because Trump refused to agree to debate virtually while he had Covid-19 (they had dueling town halls instead). This time around, better moderation and the handy use of a mute button allowed both candidates to express their thoughts — leading to a mix of actual substantive policy exchanges and less-than-coherent mudslinging about families and personal finance.

Since the music is not used for a specific endorsement, it is perfectly fine for it to be played at Trump rallies, the band said in a Facebook post on “Our music is all-inclusive and certainly everyone is entitled to do the YMCA dance, regardless of their political affiliation.” I will change the station if I ever

In a joint statement shared to the Belgian royal family's Facebook page, Philippe, 60, and Delphine - who shared a photograph of them socially distanced - said: 'This extensive and special conversation gave us the opportunity to get to know each other.

'We have spoken about our own lives and our common interests. This bond will develop further in family context.'

Their union was met with delight from royal fans, with many Belgians praising King Philippe for his 'moving' gesture.

One commented: 'Great respect for King Filip for this deep human gesture to his half sister!! Beautiful!!'

'Congratulations on this warm, human gesture!' another wrote. 'It truly is a strong signal. This is the attitude of an committed and confident Prince who also turns his social message into actions. An example. Congrats!'

And one gushed: 'Fantastic! How good of the King! And what's wrong with a nice new (half) sister? Exactly: nothing! Compliments.'

Speaking after a court officially recognised her as the love child of Belgium's former king on October 1, Delphine said her battle to be recognised as a royal was not about money or status.

Can musicians like Rihanna and Axl Rose stop politicians from using their music ? “Unfortunately the Trump campaign is using loopholes in the various venues’ blanket performance licenses which were not intended for such craven political purposes, without the songwriters’ consent.

She explained that her mother's husband, wealthy industrialist and aristocrat Jacques Boel, is 'much richer than the royal family'.

Delphine also revealed she will not be using the 'Her Royal Highness' prefix, adding: 'I just wanted to be the same as my brother and my sister.'

She told Belgian radio show Matin Premiere: 'I feel like I have a right to exist. Not to exist in the royal family but as me.

'My decision to call for help through the law, I feel today that it was the right thing to do... The judicial system said that I was right and that I had the right to exist.'

Speaking earlier this month, Delphine revealed she last spoke to Albert in 2001 and 'expects nothing more'.

'I tried to solve the problem behind the walls, in secret, for years,' she added, but said Albert's repeated denials forced her to go public.

Describing her life before the judgement, she called herself 'a black sheep' adding that her existence was 'unpleasant and unlivable'.

She added that she now wants to go back to focusing on her art, while moving on from the scandal of her birth.

Stop the music! Chorus of artists tell Trump to turn it down

  Stop the music! Chorus of artists tell Trump to turn it down LOS ANGELES (AP) — From the beloved opening lines of Leonard Cohen's “Hallelujah” to the rousing, children's-choir conclusion of the Rolling Stones' “You Can't Always Get What You Want,” President Donald Trump's campaign rallies have been filled with classic songs whose authors and their heirs loudly reject him and his politics. It's become a sub-cycle in the endless campaign cycle. The Trump campaign can hardly play a song without the artist denouncing its use and sending a cease-and-desist letter.

'It is not [the child's] fault, they do not ask to be born,' she said. 'The child who comes from a love affair outside of marriage should not be treated any differently.'

The alleged affair between Albert II and Sybille de Selys Longchamps is believed to have begun in 1966 when Albert was not yet king but was married to Italian aristocrat and later queen Donna Paola Ruffo di Calabria, whom he wed in 1959.

The couple lived apart for a large part of their early marriage, amid rumours that she disliked living in Belgium, finding it too cold and rainy.

Delphine was born in 1968, and the affair is thought to have ended in 1984.

Albert's other children - Philippe, who assumed the throne after Albert's abdication, Princess Astrid and Prince Laurent - were born in 1960, 1962 and 1963 respectively.

Albert ascended the throne in 1993, following the death of his elder brother, King Baudouin, from heart failure.

A look at artists who've objected to Trump using their songs

  A look at artists who've objected to Trump using their songs From classic American rockers to British artists to the estates of late legends, here's a look at some of the musicians who have objected to Donald Trump using their songs at campaign events. JOHN FOGERTY, PHIL COLLINS, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Some classic rockers say not only do they oppose Trump using their music, the choice of songs is ironic or downright wrong. John Fogerty, who last week sent the campaign a cease-and-desist letter over the use of “Fortunate Son” by his band Creedence Clearwater Revival, said he was baffled by the use of a song that could have been written to slam Trump.

Her statement was made shortly after the publication of an unofficial biography of Queen Paola which alluded to an affair the King had which produced a lovechild.

Albert acknowledged problems with his marriage in his Christmas speech the same year, referring to a 'crisis' which nearly ended his marriage 30 years before, but said he and his wife 'surpassed those difficulties to find a deep understanding love'.

But Albert never addressed the issue of a child, and for years the palace neither confirmed nor denied the reports, merely saying that it was a 'private matter'.

Despite years of private lobbying, Ms Boel was unable to get Albert to recognise her true identity.

After years of questions over her identity, which Delphine claimed stopped her from opening bank accounts, she went to the courts in 2013 in an attempt to prove her biological father was Albert.

The same year the legal case began, Albert abdicated for 'health reasons', passing the throne to son Philippe - Delphine's half-brother.

After several early setbacks, the breakthrough for Ms Boel came in November last year when a court ruled that Albert must provide a DNA sample for testing.

Failure to comply would result in a €5,000 fine for each day the sample was missing.

Albert is thought to have undergone the DNA test shortly afterwards, which proved he is the father.

In January, he issued a statement confirming that he is no longer contesting paternity.

The court ruled that Delphine should be recognised as part of the royal family, putting her 15th in line to the throne and entitling her to a share of Albert's estate when he dies.

A statement released by Delphine's lawyers last week said: 'Delphine de Saxe Cobourg has taken note of the judgment... which gives her full satisfaction.

'Her other requests for it to be dealt with on the same footing as her brothers and sister have also been satisfied.

'She is delighted by this court decision which ends a long process which is particularly painful for her and her family.

A legal victory will never replace the love of a father but offers a feeling of justice, further reinforced by the fact that many children who have gone through the same ordeals will find the strength to face them.'

In fact, he doesn’t even live in the United States.
