“She told the people that were there that Trump gave her the stroke,” Jones’ band mate, Gabriel Roth, told the newspaper of the 60-year-old, who died Friday. 

"Well, she’d been fighting fighting cancer for a few years now, and there’s been all kinds of stuff coming at her. But the thing that actually got her in the last couple of weeks was, she had a stroke watching the election results," he said.

She could still talk, and, "She was blaming Trump for the whole thing."

Jones suffered another stroke the day after the election, according to Roth.

Jones performed with her band as Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
