Twitter has taken down a video posted by Donald Trump following a copyright complaint.

The apparent 2020 campaign video was posted on Trump’s Twitter account on Tuesday, and featured the soundtrack to The Dark Knight Rises, which was the last film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman series.

In a matter of hours, the video had amassed more than 2.5 million views, but later that day, the video was removed from Twitter, displaying a message that it had been taken down due to a copyright complaint.

Warner Bros. had earlier filed the complaint, a spokesperson for the company confirmed to Mashable.

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

The score used in Trump’s two-minute clip is a Hans Zimmer composition, titled “Why Do We Fall” from the film’s soundtrack.

As noted by BuzzFeed News, the video appears to have been lifted from a fan video which was published to YouTube

That version has also been taken down due to a copyright complaint.
