While not everyone is looking forward to Donald Trump being president again in 2020, he certainly is. He even just posted his first re-election campaign on Twitter. However, it wasn’t as successful as he thought it would be, as it got a copyright strike from Warner Bros. for using a song from The Dark Knight Rises.


It was afternoon yesterday when Donald Trump’s Twitter account shared a fresh hype video of his 2020 re-election campaign. It read, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they call you racist. Donald J. Trump. Your vote proved them all wrong,” accompanied by the music “Why do we fall?” from The Dark Knight Rises composed by Hans Zimmer.

It only took a few hours before Warner Bros., who owns the rights to the said music, saw the campaign video which used the track without permission. Hence, it was taken down by Twitter, and where once was a pretentious dramatic self-praise video now exists a copyright strike warning and prompt that the media has been disabled:

“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,” stated Warner Bros. It wasn’t long before celebrities started taking notice and some people even made a joke out of Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign blunder– his very first attempt, nonetheless.

Still, it is not clear whether the campaign video with the copyright strike was an in-house production or something Trump simply saw online and reposted. Regardless, we can expect more blunders attempts as the 2020 election in the US draws near.
