Trump and Clinton team up on ‘best song’ nomination
The Trump and Hillary Clinton presidential campaigns are teaming up to nominate the top song for President Donald Trump and the Democratic nominee for president, a White House official confirmed Thursday.
The nomination is expected to come from a former Clinton staffer who helped write the song.
The White House is expected formally to announce the nominee for songwriter on Friday afternoon.
A former Clinton administration official said she did not want to be quoted discussing the song because it is not subject to publication rules and is not considered official.
The official said the former Clinton aide and the songwriter are working with the Clinton team on an unofficial songwriting team.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an internal deliberations that has not yet been released publicly.
It was not immediately clear how the official plans to announce a nomination.
A spokesman for the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The song is about a woman in the White House who’s had her own issues.
It’s about a songbird and her struggles to find love after the death of her husband.
