In a tweet, the Petty family stated: "Trump was in no way authorised to use this song to further a campaign that leaves too many Americans and common sense behind,"

The Trump campaign received other cease and desist notices from musicians, including R.E.M., Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Neil Young.
