The Village People says they won't stop President Trump from using "YMCA" Or "Macho Man" at his rallies, but they also don't endorse it.

In a statement on Facebook, the group says their music is all-inclusive – regardless of political affiliation.

As long as he and any other candidates remain respectful and don't cross any lines that would suggest endorsement, it's okay.

However, they say they would prefer their music be kept out of politics altogether.
