Frank Sinatra ‘Loathed’ Donald Trump, Reveals Daughter Nancy Sinatra

During the Independence Day weekend in the U.S., President Donald Trump signed an executive order to establish a “National Garden of American Heroes,” described as “a vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans who ever lived.”

Among those to be honoured in the new monument are frontiersman Davy Crockett, evangelist Billy Graham, abolitionists Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, and first U.S. President George Washington. Also named are such entertainers as Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra.

However, Sinatra’s daughter doesn’t believe that her late father would consider being honoured by Trump to be much of an honour.

Actress Mia Farrow, who was briefly married to Sinatra during the late 1960s, tweeted that he “would have loathed Donald Trump.”

Nancy Sinatra replied to Farrow’s tweet to confirm that her father “actually did loathe him.”

One reason for Old Blue Eyes’ alleged dislike of Trump could stem from a 1990 incident, detailed in a book written by Sinatra’s manager Elliot Weisman, and recounted in The Independent.

At the time, Sinatra had been booked to open Trump’s new casino in Atlantic City for a 12-night run. Trump, however, sought at the last minute to renegotiate Sinatra’s fee, which Trump deemed “a little rich.”

Trump also cancelled some other performers on the bill, including Sinatra’s longtime friend Sammy Davis Jr., who had recently been diagnosed with cancer at the time.

Meanwhile, Nancy Sinatra also shared a quote from her father that underlined his lifelong support of the Civil Rights Movement, words that are as timely now as when he wrote them nearly 30 years ago.
