Twitter removed a video posted by the Trump campaign's official account after the company received a copyright complaint.




The video was a four-minute speech by the president about the death of George Floyd, played over stills and clips from the protests.




This isn't the first time Twitter has removed a video from Trump on copyright grounds. In 2019 it took down a meme of his because it used a clip from Nickelback's "Photograph."

Twitter has taken down a video tribute to George Floyd posted by the Trump campaign's official account, further escalating tensions with the president.
The video, posted by @TeamTrump on Wednesday, is almost four minutes long and features a speech from the president played over various photos and videos to sad piano music.
In it Trump describes the murder of George Floyd as a "grave tragedy," and says his memory is being "dishonored by rioters, looters, and anarchists." He also claims "violence and vandalism is being led by antifa and other radical left-wing groups." The video, entitled "Healing, not Hatred" is still up on the president's YouTube channel.
