American online news and social networking service Twitter removes a video promoting US President Donald Trump for the 2020 presidential election after it is shared by him.

Featuring music from the movie "The Dark Knight," the clip was disabled in “response to a report by the copyright owner,” Twitter said Wednesday.

American entertainment company Warner Bros had warned Tuesday that it was going to take action against the “Make America Great Again” video shared by President Trump because it used the score of trilogy of films without permission.

“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," a Warner Bros. spokesperson told The Hill.
Featuring an image of a Trump 2020 campaign logo, the video opened saying,: “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they call you racist."

It also showed some of Trump’s opponents, including former President Barak Obama, former President Bill Clinton, and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Trump.

The White House has remained silent about the social media giant’s move while the person or company behind the clip remains unknown.
Trump is facing a long list of Democrats in the 2020 presidential vote, including Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and possibly former US Vice President Joe Biden.

Democrats hope to take the White House back after Hillary Clinton’s loss and prevent Trump from controlling the White House for another four years.

The GOP in part aims to cut debate time on lower-level nominees and accelerate confirmation of Trump's judicial and executive branch picks.
