When Miller first released the track, Trump was just a rich real estate mogul and reality TV star, so comparing himself to the billionaire was just an easy way to tout his current or forthcoming wealth. Trump endorsed the song back then, calling Miller “the new Eminem,” but then backtracked and demanded royalties while calling Miller an “ungrateful dog.”
More recently, while on the campaign trail Trump was playing the track for reporters before Miller came right out and very publicly called Trump a “troll,” a “clown,” a “racist fuckwad of a human” and more.
This is all a long way of pointing out that Trump probably loves this track, but can’t admit that now. Still, in private maybe he can enjoy it, rapping along to get pumped up for a big rally or something like that.
Thanks to Rostrum Records — which released Miller’s Best Day Ever mixtape featuring the song that helped launch his career — we now get a peak of what that might look like. Celebrating the re-release fifth anniversary edition of Best Day Ever last Friday, the label has dropped a video of Trump singing each word of the song, assembled from a mix of various speeches, debates and other TV appearances.
Love or hate Trump, watching this you might just want to sing along to that chorus: “Take over the world when I’m on my Donald Trump shit/ Look at all this money, ain’t that some shit.”
