Song Linked To QAnon Conspiracy Theorists Played During Trump’s Rally Speech

Former President Donald Trump spoke to supporters on Saturday over background music that appears to be a song linked to the conspiracy theory movement QAnon.

During a rally in Youngstown, Ohio, in support of Senate candidate J.D. Vance, Trump delivered an eight-minute long speech about what he calls a “nation in decline” while a dramatic soundtrack played.

The song is believed to be one called “Wwg1wga,” by Richard Feelgood. The acronym is an abbreviation for “Where we go one, we go all,” a QAnon slogan.

Trump’s spokesperson denied the relation to QANon in a statement sent to The New York Times.

In August, the former president published a campaign video on Truth Social, his social media platform, using the same song, sparking similar controversy online. At that time, a spokesperson told media watchdog Media Matters the song used was “Mirrors,” by TV and film composer Will Van De Crommert. The two songs, however, are virtually identical.

When the campaign video came out in August, Vice reported that QAnon followers reacted on Telegram to what was considered a sign of support from Trump.

“If that’s not a Q proof, then I don’t know what is. Boom,” said a user.

In his remarks on Saturday, Trump repeated criticism of President Joe Biden, including high inflation and the repercussions of the war in Ukraine.
