President Donald Trump’s Midas touch has struck again as he scored a hit with his new song that soared to the top of the charts.
Trump topped the iTunes charts with his first single, “Justice For All,” knocking off superstars like Miley Cyrus and Tim McGraw.
“Justice For All,” is a tribute to the January 6 prisoners.
It features a group of prisoners singing the national anthem while Trump recites the Pledge of Allegiance.
Kash Patel, who worked in the Pentagon during the Trump administration, and conservative commentator Ed Henry helped Trump with the project.
“’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,” Patel said.
“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.”

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.
According to The Daily Wire:
Some Republicans have alleged mistreatment of the January 6 prisoners.
On Thursday, the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability launched an investigation into the issue, sending a letter to D.C. Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser requesting January 6 detainee complaints and other documents, according to the New York Post.
The letter, signed by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA), and Committee Chair Rep. James Comer (R-KY), says, “Eyewitness accounts of conditions at the DC Jail Facilities—particularly regarding the treatment of January 6 detainees—paint a picture of despair, hopelessness, and a severe abuse of justice.”
