Axl Rose has zero respect for Donald Trump. The Guns N' Roses frontman made his stance about the current U.S. president clear in a series of tweets Sunday (Nov. 4), asserting that Trump has "no regard for truth, ethics, morals or empathy of any kind."

Two days before the upcoming midterm elections, Rose explained that Trump's administration has been employing "loopholes" to use GNR songs like "Sweet Child O' Mine" at political functions, even though the band has not given its consent.

"Just so ya know... GNR like a lot of artists opposed to the unauthorized use of their music at political events has formally requested r music not b used at Trump rallies or Trump associated events," he said. "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. Can u say 'shitbags?!'"

Rose added, "Personally I kinda liked the irony of Trump supporters listening to a bunch of anti Trump music at his rallies but I don’t imagine a lot of ‘em really get that or care. And when ur phone’s blowin’ up cuz peeps r seein’/hearin’ Sweet Child on the news at a rally... as a band we felt we should clarify r position."

Sunday evening, he made his opinion about Trump even more transparent.

"As far as I’m concerned anyone can enjoy GNR 4 whatever reason n’ there’s truth 2 the saying 'u can’t choose your fans' n’ we’re good w/that," he tweeted. "Having said that my personal position is that the Trump administration along w/the majority of Republicans in Congress n’ their donors that support him 4 their own agendas r doing r nation a disservice."

"We have an individual in the WH that will say n’ do anything w/no regard for truth, ethics, morals or empathy of any kind, who says what’s real is fake n’ what’s fake is real. Who will stop at nothing 4 power feeding off the anger n’ resentment he sows 24/7 while constantly whining how whatever doesn’t go his way is unfair," Rose wrote.

"Most of us in America have never experienced anything this obscene at this level in r lifetimes n’ if we as a country don’t wake up n’ put an end 2 this nonsense now it’s something we definitely will all pay hard 4 as time goes on," he warned.
