Why Keith Richards had to get rid of Donald Trump

They begged me to go up!' I say, 'Stop it. Stop it. "They call me back, at which point Keith pulls out his knife and slams it on the table and says, "What the hell do I have you for?" Richards has spoken out about Donald Trump's time working as a promoter for the band.

As Huffington Post reports, Richards and the other Rolling Stones are preparing to embark on the next leg of their "No Filter" world tour, and they're talking to the press - perhaps aptly, without filters.

"He was the promoter for us in Atlantic City during 1989's 'Steel Wheels Tour, '" the durable Brit told the BBC, referring to a gig at Boardwalk Hall, next door to Trump Plaza Hotel and now-defunct casino.

Concert promoter Michael Cohl told a version of Richards' story in 2015, saying Trump had agreed to host a pay-per-view event featuring the Stones in Atlantic City.

"It was billed as "Donald Trump presents the Rolling Stones" - with Trump's name in huge letters and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band's name below in miniature, he said. Cohl recalled, per the Los Angeles Times.

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

Musician Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones performs onstage during Desert Trip at the Empire Polo Field on October 7, 2016 in Indio, California. "The worst nightmare", Richards said. Do I have to go over there and fire him myself? "Well, can you imagine President Trump?"

"He used it on everything", Jagger said.

"It's a amusing song for your playout song", Jagger told BBC4 radio. "He used it on every rally through the election campaign".

"So when he finished the speech, he played this out on this sort of doomy ballad about drugs in Chelsea", Jagger continued. It's kind of weird if you think about it.
