(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- It seems that any video President Donald Trump posts on Twitter these days is immediately taken down with a copyright strike. Even if the audio used is a cover of the original song!
The most recent instance of this is the removal of a Trump campaign video that uses a cover version of their song “In the End,” which was published back in 2000.
The campaign video was particularly good and racked up hundreds of thousands of views extremely quickly. It was shared by Dan Scavino, the White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications. If you managed to catch it before it was taken down, you would have seen dramatic footage of President Donald Trump at the inauguration. It was so good that the president shared it – which is what prompted Linkin Park and Twitter to take action.
Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music. A cease and desist has been issued.

“Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music,” the Linkin Park Twitter account announced. “A cease and desist has been issued.”
A Twitter spokesperson said that the video was removed per their copyright policy, and that they respond to “valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representative.”
You can see the original tweet below, which is now censored.

The video was also shared in a new post by One America News anchor Jack Posobiec, but the video was once again censored after gaining more than 800,000 views.
This has happened on several occasions already and while it may be true that Twitter is acting on the behalf of people who own the copyright to music, this never seems to happen to left-wing campaigns. The prevalence of copyright claims against pro-Trump videos is likely a result of most celebrities supporting the Democrats…
