Remember Donald Trump's tween group of singing cheerleaders, the "USA Freedom Kids"? According to the Washington Post, the creator of the group, Jeff Popick, is suing Donald Trump's campaign for breaking his promise to pay them. Their performance at the Trump Rally in Pensacola, FL in January went viral.
Popick is the father of the youngest girl in the group and the author of the lyrics to "Freedom's Call," the song the group performed to the tune of "Over There." He says Trump failed to honor "unwritten agreements." Popick claims that not only was the group not paid for its performance, they were scheduled to perform at another rally in Des Moines, IA, but were told that plans had changed. After they showed up.
Popick was also not reimbursed for the group's travel expenses, and his emails requesting and then demanding payment went unanswered. He told the Washington Post:
This is not a billion-dollar lawsuit. I'm doing this because I think they have to do the right thing. And if this means having to go through the court system to enforce them doing the right thing, then that's what I have to do. I'm not looking to do battle with the Trump campaign, but I have to show my girls that this is the right thing.
Wow, not paying kids? This seems like a new low for Trump, and really begs the age-old question, "are you serious?"
