This song was played at the 2016 Republican National Convention, where Donald Trump was nominated. A version called "Trump Train" also appeared.
Use of the song did not sit well with the O'Jays, who were not asked permission. Eddie Levert and Walter Williams responded with a statement saying they were asked to appear at the convention, but declined, as Trump was "Divisive and at odds with the overriding message of their song." Williams later said, "We're about unity, not division. Trump says he's gonna make America great again. I would ask him: 'When was it not great for you?' My dad didn't give me a million dollars. What a joke."
The O'Jays song "For The Love Of Money
" was the theme song to Trump's show The Apprentice
