President Donald Trump shocked the entertainment industry when his hit single “Justice for All” shot to number one on the charts.
The song features Jan. 6 political prisoners singing the national anthem with Trump reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
The song was reigning supreme in the top spot of the iTunes music store, beating Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and Tim McGraw.
However, Apple pulled the song from the store which subsequently toppled it from the top of the charts.
After a few hours, Apple later put it back on the platform, claiming the removal was over a “miscommunication.”
But it fell down the charts while the mistake was fixed.
The Trump adviser who helped with the song, Kash Patel, said: “It’s no surprise that suppression of free speech and charitable endeavors has now extended to the music entertainment industry and Apple Music.
“They have pulled down a song that was number one on their own charts for seven straight days, and the only reason they have is because it’s a miscommunication.
“If we were raising money for Ukraine, like Brad Paisley did, they would never pull this song.”
Patel said Apple told him, “Seems to have been a miscommunication between our communications department and our music operations team.
“The issue has been escalated and should be back up on our platform soon.”
“Justice For All” is a tribute to the January 6 prisoners and features the J6 Choir.
Alongside Patel, Ed Henry helped Trump with the project.
Patel said earlier:
“’Justice For All’ by the J6 Prison Choir and former President Donald Trump is the first song ever released by a former U.S. President.
“This powerful and moving song raises awareness and support for the political prisoners still locked in jail without trial following the January 6th protest in 2021,”
“J6 Prison Choir consists of individuals who have been incarcerated as a result of their involvement in the January 6, 2021 protest for election integrity after President Donald J. Trump stated ‘I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard’.
“The J6PC continues to make their voices heard through the power of music and sings ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ every evening before bed, inside Pod C2B of the DC Jail – a.k.a – the DC gulag.
“We basically broke the music industry is what we did here because we put America First values back front and center.
“And we said we’re going to use free speech platforms like Truth Social and Rumble, and then we’re going to debut a song that speaks to what’s on so many Americans’ minds.
We’re not saying every January 6 prisoner has been overcharged. Some of those that committed violent acts should be punished and should be sent to prison.”

According to Forbes:
Trump recorded the Pledge of Allegiance at Mar-a-Lago a couple of weeks ago, specifically for this track.
The inmates, who sing the national anthem nightly, were recorded over a jailhouse phone about a month ago.
The song, which runs 2 minutes and 20 seconds, was reportedly produced by a major recording artist who was not identified.
A different recording project involving the inmates had been discussed, according to a person with knowledge of the project granted anonymity so they could speak candidly about the track before it was released.
But when Trump heard about the original plan, the former president asked to be directly involved.
