A.J. McLean When it Comes to Clinton/Trump, I'm Neutral

EXCLUSIVE

The Backstreet Boys sent a strong message to Donald Trump NOT to play their songs, but A.J. McLean says he and his boys are neutral.

A.J. was at LAX Friday when our photog asked about the group's publicist contacting Trump's people, warning them to stop using "I Want it That Way" as an anthem when the candidate gave speeches.

A.J. thinks his job is to sing and dance ... NOT to influence his fans.
