Trump Says that The Late Paverotti is “A Great Friend of Mine”

As many of you know famous Opera tenor singer Luciano Pavarotti died in 2007. However, that didn’t stop Donald Trump from saying that Pavarotti was a good friend of his. On Thursday afternoon Trump decided to do his whole “Trump just being Trump” thing by embellishing on a written speech with some of his own personal anecdotes. In a joint press conference with the Prime Minister of Italy, Paolo Gentiloni, the U.S. President heralded his “great friend” Luciano Pavarotti.

“Through the ages your country has been a beacon of artistic and scientific achievement,” Trump told Prime Minister Gentiloni. “That continues today.”

“From Venice to Florence to Verdi to Pavarotti — friend of mine,” President Trump said. “Great friend of mine,” he concluded.

Some might very well argue these two weren’t really friends at all. If you recall, late last summer during the election race the Trump campaign frequently used Pavarotti’s rendition of the Puccini’s aria “Nessun Dorma” (“None Shall Sleep”) without permission. Pavarotti’s family sent a letter requesting they stop using his music.

The family’s statement said that “the values of brotherhood and solidarity which Luciano Pavarotti expressed throughout the course of his artistic career are entirely incompatible with the worldview offered by the candidate Donald Trump.” Ouch. So who thinks these two were ever friends other than Donald Trump? Oh, right. No one.
