Donald Trump post taken down from Twitter for 'unauthorised' copyrighted music

The campaign video, which flows like a movie trailer, opens with aerial views of Washington, D.C. along with subtitles that read "first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they call you racist".

It's also set to music from The Dark Knight Rises? OK!

The video also attempts to compare Trump's rise to power with the apparent poor performances of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as well as Hollywood personalities who have been critical of the president like Amy Schumer and Rosie O'Donnell. But either way, he seems extremely fond of the video and has already pinned it to his profile.

The supercut includes footage of everything from Trump shaking hands and walking, to his rallies, related news clips, and even screenshots of Fox News articles.

Hamilton leads team-mate Bottas by just a point after his triumph in Bahrain and the world champion will be eyeing a sixth success at the Shanghai International Circuit.

The video shows a variety of pivotal moments during Trump's first term, including 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. However, an insider said the clip with the Hans Zimmer music is in the process of being taken down.

Is literally anyone on this planet ready for another election? While the White House has not officially commented on the video, it appears to be taken from a Reddit thread r/TheDonald.

Artists including Prince, Pharrell Williams and The Rolling Stones have taken issue with the United States president using their music at campaign rallies.
