It's the painfully patriotic performance at a Donald Trump rally that burrowed its way into the minds of everyone with access to YouTube.
00:00:11
00:00:13
But now Trump may be the one trying to forget the viral sensation. That's because the musical genius behind USA Freedom Kids is planning to sue the Republican nominee's campaign for violating its agreement with it.

00:00:29
>> Reuters' political correspondent Emily Flitter who follows the Trump campaign explains.>> The issue in this potential lawsuit is that this man, Jeff Popick, thinks that Trump owes him money. The promise that Popick says he was made by the Trump campaign was that they were gonna provide him a space where he could sell his CDs.
00:00:52
And when he showed up, there was no space, and he had actually spent money of his own to make promotional materials and get things ready.>> Despite that mishap Popick agreed to another performance at an event in Iowa with one day's notice. He and the kids then flew all the way from Florida on his own dime only to find out that when he got there that their performance had been canceled.
00:01:16
Popick asked for compensation but never got it.>> It fits into a pattern in which Trump throughout his career has been known to try to avoid actually paying his bills. In his interview in Washington Post today Popick is saying that he's had a real change of heart about Trump himself.
00:01:35
>> Popick expects to file the lawsuit within a few weeks.
