Trump win could hinder UK musicians working in the US, says music industry trade body

Jo Dipple, the chief executive of music industry trade body UK Music has warned that Donald Trump’s victory in the US election could negatively affect UK musicians working in America.

She spoke of Trump's "clear desire to put US interests first" and said there would be "a clear impact on UK artists who want to work and tour in the US."

Dipple referenced Trump’s “distrust of the media and high scepticism towards Google”, noting that “there may be a change of thinking towards companies that have operated seemingly without constraint.”
