The manager of the USA Freedom Kids says the group plans to move forward with legal action against the Trump campaign for failing to provide payment or reimbursement for their performances. The American-flag clad trio became an instant sensation online and in the media earlier this year.

Jeff Poplick, who also happens to be the father of the youngest singer, said they entered a verbal agreement with the campaign…twice.
The group first performed at a Trump rally in Pensacola in January if allowed to set up a table and sell their merchandise. However, they never received a table.
The group later used its own money to book a flight to perform at a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, where they were canceled on last-minute.

According to Poplick, the campaign instead offered prime seats to the event and were asked not to speak to the media. Trump never reimbursed the group for their travel.

The group said the campaign has since failed to return their phone calls or pay up.
