Is a Grammy Award in Former President Donald Trump’s Future?
The former president collaborated on a song with the J6 Prison Choir – members of the MAGA mob still imprisoned for their role in the January 6 attack on the Capitol.
The song, titled “Justice for All,” uses Trump’s spoken word recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance over the Star-Spangled banner, with the prisoners chanting “USA” at the end.
It was released Friday on YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music and other platforms.
With the release of the song, Trump has some new material to play with when he delivers the keynote address at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday night.

The song, titled “Justice for All,” uses Trump’s spoken-word recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance over the Star-Spangled banner, with the prisoners chanting “USA” at the end.
On Friday, Trump also presented the creation of up to 10 new US cities – called “Freedom Cities” – with flying cars and lots of babies, while the ex-president promised to give potential parents “baby bonuses” to boost the US birth rate.
In those cities, there would be “towering monuments to our true American heroes,” Trump said, reminiscent of the National Garden of American Heroes Trump wanted to build, signing an executive order for its creation days before he left office.
“These freedom cities will reopen the border, rekindle the American imagination and give hundreds of thousands of young people and other people, all of them hard-working families, a new chance at home ownership and, in effect, the American dream,” he said.
During his speech, Trump will also likely continue to portray his supporters involved in the January 6 attack on the Capitol as political prisoners.
The violent riots left several people dead and more than 100 law enforcement officers injured.
Trump has pledged to grant the insurgents a full pardon and an apology from the administration if reelected in 2024.
In December, Trump filmed a message to a group that provides legal support to January 6 defendants.
Not everyone was a fan of Trump’s new tune. Robert Maguire, the research director for the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said he was “disgusted” that the song existed
“People have been treated in my opinion unconstitutionally and very, very unfairly, and we are going to get to the bottom of this,” Trump promised. “And you know what I said, I take it very seriously, I’ve never seen anything like it on all levels.”
He said during his 2024 run that he intended to look at what he called a “deeply unfair situation.”
Not everyone was a fan of Trump’s new tune.
“I’ve never been so repulsed by the mere existence of a song as one sung by a president trying to stage a coup and a literal ‘choir’ of insurgents trying to help him,” Robert Maguire, the research director, tweeted. of the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
“To be clear, I say this as someone who has heard the Utah House of Representatives rap,” Maguire added, sharing the video of Utah lawmakers in their rendition of “Fresh Prints of Bills Here.”
