The Art of the Deal: Will Elton John — a Trump Favorite and a Longtime Supporter of Democrats — Play at the Inauguration?

Nov 23, 2016  •  Post A Comment

After a top Trump adviser said Elton John will perform at the inauguration, the singer’s rep offered a different take on the situation.

The New York Post reports that a rep for the singer said, “Elton will not be performing at Trump’s inauguration.” The statement came after Anthony Scaramucci, a member of the executive committee for Trump’s transition team, was quoted saying just the opposite: “Elton John is going to be doing our concert on the mall for inauguration.”

Scaramucci also said the appearance by John “shows our commitment to gay rights.” He added: “This will be the first American president in U.S. history that enters the White House with a pro-gay rights stance.”

While Trump is reportedly a big fan of John, the report notes that the singer supported Hillary Clinton during the campaign.

Back in October, John said: “We need a humanitarian in the White House, not a barbarian.” He added that Clinton stood for ”equality, decency, kindness and respect.”

  1. Elton is NOT playing the inauguration, and there aren’t many who are willing to do so. Ted Nugent’s probably available.
