I don't know that the Trump campaign needs Neil Young's permission to use a song for a campaign event as long as they pay a compulsory blanket license for live performance at the venue. For example, if you own a bar or restaurant, you don't go to an artist to license their music, you get a blanket license from a performing rights organization for a blanket license for any of the music publishing rights administered my the PRO, which one would assume the Trump campaign didas part of their venue contract.

You're making the mistake of assuming Trump and/or his campaign actually pays their bills. There is plenty of evidence that this is untrue.

Sure, but then it gets the artist who does not want to be involved in their campaign to get motivated to start stumping for their side of the aisle.

t's an updated version of his 2006 song "Lookin' For A Leader" that now takes swipes at the current president and endorses presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

There is no one in America more ruthless than ASCAP and BMI in getting money.

BMI is getting involved.  there will be less and less of this.

Curious: I_told_you_so: I don't know that the Trump campaign needs Neil Young's permission to use a song for a campaign event as long as they pay a compulsory blanket license for live performance at the venue.

That answers the question...there is a blanket license until an artist asks to be excluded, and the campaign is notified.

"The Trump campaign has a Political Entities License which authorizes the public performance of more than 15 million musical works in BMI's repertoire wherever campaign events occur," a BMI spokesperson told Deadline. "There is a provision, however, that allows BMI to exclude musical works from the license if a songwriter or publisher objects to its use by a campaign. BMI has received such an objection and sent a letter notifying the Trump campaign that the Rolling Stones' works have been removed from the campaign license, and advising the campaign that any future use of these musical compositions will be in breach of its license agreement with BMI."

The artist(s) typically has a right to exclude users from their blanket license.  That is why the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Tom Petty's family, et al have sent cease & desist letters to Trump's campaign informing him that they have opted out of both BMI's and ASCAP's license, using the political license exemption.

The license the campaign holds is subject to limitations and an artist can "opt-out" if they choose.
