Donald Trump made his way to Great Falls, Montana, on Thursday (July 5), primarily to slam Democratic Sen. Jon Tester and accuse him of failing to live up to his promises in Washington.
However, among the digs at Tester, Trump made a particularly interesting comment, originally noted by Deadline. He compared his oral skills to the talent of the great Elton John. “I’ve broken more Elton John [attendance] records, and I don’t have a musical instrument,” he boasted. “I don’t have a guitar, or an organ. This is my only musical instrument–the mouth–and hopefully the brain is attached to the mouth. The brain is so much more important.”
The President and the music icon have had a bit of history during the 2016 campaign. Trump used “Rocket Man” during a lot of his rallies, and often refers to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un as the song title.
“I don’t really want my music to be involved in anything to do with an American election campaign. I’m British,” John told The Guardian at the time. “I’ve met Donald Trump, he was very nice to me, it’s nothing personal, his political views are his own, mine are very different, I’m not a Republican in a million years.”
