Warner Bros. Pictures is filing a copyright infringement complaint to have U.S President Donald Trump’s recent 2020 campaign video taken down from Twitter.
Trump tweeted a video , Tuesday afternoon, includes a two minute dramatic trailer like video that uses music from the studio’s 2012 film “The Dark Knight Rises.”
“The use of Warner Bros.’ score from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ in the campaign video was unauthorized,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement. “We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”
The clip shows footage of Democrats and other public figures that Trump has mocked or who have mocked him, including former U.S President Barak Obama and other fellow leaders.

The video also shows images highlighting Trump’s meetings with North Korean dictator and Brazil’s President.
The video has almost 1.8 million views, while there is no dialogue in the video itself, dramatic text flashes on the screen in between the footage, “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they call you racist,” the text reads. “Your vote proved them all wrong.”
Twitter users were quick to respond to the act of glory.
