Everyone has an opinion on what’s the best music video of all time, even President Donald Trump. So, where does POTUS stand in this debate?

According to Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ new memoir, Speaking For Myself: Faith, Freedom, And The Fight Of Our Lives Inside The Trump White House, President Trump thinks the best music video of all time is Guns N’ Roses’ “November Rain.”

This fun fact went viral after Bloomberg News Sr. White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs took a photo of a page in Sanders’ memoir that contains this detail and tweeted it out.

Sanders wrote, “On my first day back in the White House for the New Year, I did a press briefing, and Ivanka invited my family to join hers at the Monster Jam coming to the Verizon Arena in Washington. The president told [then White House Communications Director] Hope [Hicks] and me in the Oval he wanted the classic Guns N’ Roses song “November Rain” added to his rally playlist. He told us it was the ‘greatest music video of all time,’ and made us watch it to prove his point even though neither of us had disagreed.”

So far, there’s no word whether President Trump still thinks “November Rain” is the greatest music video of all time, despite Axl Rose being very critical of him and his administration on Twitter.
