Trump 2020 Video Gets Pulled For Using Unauthorized ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Music

One of Donald Trump‘s 2020 campaign ads has been pulled from his favorite social media platform, Twitter, thanks to a legal complaint from Warner Bros. Trump tweeted out a two-minute video that featured music from The Dark Knight Rises.

The video featured some of Trump’s perceived “enemies” like Rosie O’Donnell, Bryan Cranston, Amy Schumer, Hillary Clinton, John Dickerson, and Bill Clinton.

“The use of Warner Bros.’ score from The Dark Knight Rises in the campaign video was unauthorized,” Warner Bros. said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter. “We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”

The video also attempted to tout some of Trump’s big accomplishments throughout his current stint as POTUS like his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and the end of special counsel Robert Mueller investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

If you attempt to view the campaign ad now, you simply get a message that the video was removed due to a request from the copyright holder.

“This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner,” the message reads.

Bryan Cranston, who was featured in the video, seemed to be honored by the shoutout from the president.

“Hell yes! I finally became a villain in the bizzaro underworld of the @realDonaldTrump . I can’t say that I understand what I’m doing in it, but I seem to have a high disapproval rating from the President. Hmmm, cool. Hey, do I get residuals from this movie?”

The video was viewed more than 2 million times before being taken down by Warner Bros. But now, if you were not one of the millions to check out the video, you will have to scour the internet to find any evidence of its existence.
