NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Did Donald Trump “Rickroll” America?
During a speech Tuesday night, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said, “I’m never gonna let you down,” and many people started thinking the same thing.
The line immediately evoked the Rick Astley’s 1987 song “Never Gonna Give You Up,” which has become an Internet prank and meme over the years.
Social media erupted after Trump uttered that line.
Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
