Republican Donald Trump has been facing a lot of controversies on his campaign, but it appears that the aspiring politician has a secret admiration for Adele.

According to Billboard, Trump played Adele's "Skyfall" during the campaign in Ohio. Trump also used other songs like Beatles' "Hey Jude" and Elton John's "Running Man."

The campaign has also featured other songs from other artists like Aerosmith, Neil Young and R.E.M. However, all of these artists have already demanded their songs not to be played in his campaigns.

R.E.M. posted on their Facebook account about their dismay on the use of their songs.

"While we do not authorize or condone the use of our music at this political event and do ask that these candidates cease and desist from doing so, let us remember that there are things of greater importance at stake here. The media and the American voter should focus on the bigger picture, and not allow grandstanding politicians to distract us from the pressing issues of the day and the current Presidential campaign," R.E.M. wrote.

Fans have supported R.E.M.'s stance on the issue. One user, Kevin Reed, wrote: "Any m*r*n who tells REM to not mix music and politics clearly has no understanding of the band... REM has always been a left-leaning, liberal band whose members are progressive liberals."

On the other hand, Rebecca Berg, a national political reporter, stated that Adele's "Skyfall" will be a "mainstay" of Trump's campaign.

Trump's Ohio campaign did not go smoothly even with Adele's song as background.

According to New York Times, his speech was disrupted by seven students from Columbus Alternative High School. However, the protesters were acknowledged, and Trump asked them to leave. Trump's supporters booed the protesters as well.

Trump was discussing the refugee topic when the students began shouting, "Hating Muslims helps ISIS." Some attendees also joined their chant.

Trump stopped his speech and called out the protesters.

"Two people, two people. So sad. Yeah, you can get 'em the hell out," said Trump.

Last week, Trump's campaign in Worcester, Mass. also had an unwelcome audience who shouted, "Trump's a racist."

Trump asked the police to remove the protester and said, "Isn't a Trump rally much more exciting than these other ones? That kind of stuff only adds to the excitement."

Meanwhile, Trump has been very open about his plans for the Presidency. He said that if elected, he would bring back waterboarding as a legal way of interrogation tactic.

"If it doesn't work, they deserve it anyway," said Trump.
