In a blog post, Nugent – who has a history of using his concerts to go on rants about the Democrats especially against Obama and Clinton – said that they had dinner with the president at the White house dining room and talked about policy.

In 2014, Nugent had referred to Obama as a 'subhuman mongrel'. He had also said several unflattering things about Clinton.

In 2012, he was investigated by the Secret Service after he made inflammatory comments about Obama at the National Rifle Association convention.

Kid Rock, was also in the news for selling obnoxious pro-Trump T-Shirts in 2016.
