Donald Trump Has Video Removed By Twitter After He Uses ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Track Without Warner Bros.’ Permission

Donald Trump had a video removed by Twitter Tuesday after he used a song from the 2012 Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” without Warner Bros.’ permission.

Trump posted a clip featuring Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, along with comedians Rosie O’Donnell and Amy Schumer, captioning it, “Make America great again!”

However, according to BuzzFeed News, the music used — composer Hans Zimmer’s “Why Do We Fall?” — was unauthorized and was swiftly taken down.

The vid was thought to have been shared to whip up a frenzy for Trump’s 2020 re-election bid, reminding people that he was an underdog back in 2016.

A Warner Bros. spokesperson said: “The use of Warner Bros.’ score from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in the campaign video was unauthorized. We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”

Although the caption is still up, the video now says it’s been removed in response to a report from the copyright holder.

BuzzFeed News says the White House has yet to respond to its request for comment.

This isn’t the first time Twitter has removed unauthorized music posted by the president. He previously used R.E.M.’s song “Everybody Hurts” without the band’s consent.
