Singer Pharrell is Not “Happy” with Donald Trump, Sends Cease and Desist to Stop Using Song at Rallies


 Pharrell is not “Happy” with Donald Trump. He has sent him a cease and desist letter telling Trump NOT TO USE his song “Happy” at his rallies. Howard King is his lawyer, and they mean business.
