"[Trump] looks at me and goes berserk. 'What, you've burnt the toast?' What am I going to get angry about?"

"[Richards said] 'One of us is leaving the building - either him or us.'"

In 2015, Richards told Billboard that Trump was "refreshing" and "cut through a lot of crap".

Lead singer Mick Jagger also commented on Trump's use of the band's song "You Can't Always Get What You Want" at his rallies. The band has repeatedly said they do not authorize Trump or the Trump campaign to play their songs at his events. When he finished his speech, he played out on this doomy ballad... I said, "No. I'll go do it".

"It's kind of weird if you think about it, but he couldn't be persuaded to use something else, it was an odd thing, very odd".

"It was odd, really odd". "But the band wanted nothing to do with him ― and when Trump turned up, Richards ordered Cohl to get rid of him".
