Having already succeeded in exposing Barack Obama's Kenyan citizenship and ousting him from the presidency, Donald Trump has a new battle: fighting for your fair share on behalf of the little guy.

With a dwindling amount of Americans left to piss off, the notable rap critic took to Twitter to launch a tirade against rapper Mac Miller for using Trump's name in the title of his popular 2011 song.

Little @MacMiller, you illegally used my name for your song “Donald Trump” which now has over 75 million hits.

The tweets stem from Miller's recent interview with Complex magazine, where the rapper issued some harsh words for The Donald. I think he’s a dick,” Miller said. “I f-cking hate Donald Trump. When he started running for president I was like, ‘Oh, fu-k—this is horrible, I have a f-cking song with this dude’s name and now he’s being such a douchebag.”

“The thing that bothers me the most is that he always says things like, ’75 million views on the song ‘Donald Trump,’ Mac Miller you’re welcome,” Miller continued. “I could’ve said, ‘Take over the world when I’m on my Bill Gates sh-t.’ It doesn’t matter. That sh-t just pisses me off.” We can now collectively imagine a Bill Gates diss retort.

One person who might be surprised at this threat of legal action is 2011 Donald Trump, who said he was "proud of" Miller and called him, naturally, "the new Eminem." 

More importantly, though, Trump also said in the video, "Maybe he should pay me a lot of money," which probably should have been a sign for us all that this was coming.

When asked about the unlikely co-sign, Miller told Hard Knock TV (via HipHopDX), “I was just excited that I’ve reached a level where someone like that, I’m on their radar. I’m ‘bout to hit him to borrow the jet real quick. That man’s got paper. I’ll get there though. He definitely thinks he’s the coolest dude in Hip Hop. He’s like, 20 million views, the ‘Donald Trump’ song, ‘I’m pretty proud of that!’”

No word yet on when Trump will release his eventual diss track "Miller's Crossing" or mixtape Trump Up the Volume.
