Twitter has disabled a movie trailer–style video that was shared from President Trump’s account featuring footage of some of his work as president set to the score of “The Dark Knight” trilogy of films.

The social media giant said the media was disabled in “response to a report by the copyright owner.”

Warner Bros. said on Tuesday that it would be filing a copyright infringement complaint in an effort to have the video Trump shared taken down.

{mosads}“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. 

Trump shared the two-minute clip earlier Tuesday with the caption: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” 

The video began with the message: “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they call you racist.” It also featured an image of a Trump campaign logo and “2020.” 

The clip also featured a number of prominent figures who have criticized the president, including former President Obama, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, comedians Amy Schumer and Rosie O’Donnell, and actor Bryan Cranston. 

It remains unclear who created the clip.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment from The Hill.
