Trump had reportedly come with a gift of Kentucky Fried Chicken and was quite insistent that they eat it. They had to refuse his gift. This was discomforting for them because Madonna, at the time, was undergoing a fast. Donatella stated that they could not get rid of Trump.

During the Woman's March, organized on January 21, 2017, to protest the American election of 2016, Madonna was captured on video saying she has thought a lot about blowing up the White House. She followed this statement by acknowledging that she realized the notion was futile.
