At this point, it looks like it's going to get to a stage where no artists are going to let Donald Trump play their music at his rallies.

The singer replied to a tweet from Washington Post journalist, Philip Rucker, who described Rihanna's Don't Stop The Music blaring out at a Republican political event in Chattanooga.

Rihanna hit back at President Trump after a reporter informed the singer her song was being played at the president's rally on Sunday.

"If you're exhausted of feeling like you don't matter in the political process", Rihanna wrote in an Instagram post.

Rihanna isn't the only musician slamming the president for playing their songs.

"Not for much longer.", Rihanna said about Trump playing her tunes. "The U.S. has only had four black Governors [sic] in its entire history, and we can help make #AndrewGillum the next one and Florida's first!"

Most recently, Pharrell sent a cease and a desist to 45 for using his song "Happy" at a rally in Illinois; Trump has also had some musical squabbles with Neil Young for using his song "Rockin" in the Free World, ' as well as REM for 'It's the End of the World'. She urged her fans to vote in the midterm elections and to vote "yes" on Amendment 4, which would restore voting rights to Florida residents with felony convictions but have completed all terms of their sentence.

"Rihanna's comments followed remarks by Axl Rose, who this weekend accused the Trump campaign of "using loopholes in the various venues' blanket performance licenses ... without the songwriters' consent" after learning that Guns N' Roses' 1988 song Sweet Child O' Mine was being played at the president's rallies".

During the 2016 election numerous bands and artists, including Adele, the Rolling Stones and Elton John, requested the Trump campaign stop using their material.
