President Trump tweeted a video Tuesday that appeared to focus on his 2020 re-election campaign with the entire video set to Hans Zimmer's dramatic score from the movie "The Dark Knight Rises".

'We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed'.

The reelection campaign video reportedly featured celebrities the president has publicly feuded with including Rosie O'Donnell, Amy Schumer and Bryan Cranston, as well as Bill and Hillary Clinton. In addition, Prince, Pharrell Williams, and the Rolling Stones have all complained about the use of their music during Trump's campaign rallies in the past.

Warner Bros. said use of the score was "unauthorized". Then they call you a racist. "Trump. Your vote proved them all wrong". BuzzFeed, which first reported that Warner Bros was seeking to remove the video, also reported that the footage was taken from Reddit.

The clip closes with "Trump the great victory" and then, "2020".

Trump has previously used pop culture references to promote his presidency.

"Be late Tuesday night the video in Trump's tweet had been replaced by a message that is was no longer available 'in response to a report by the copyright owner".

It had been viewed more than 2 million times before its removal.

Trump notably tried to be "hip" when he posted that "sanctions are coming" in November as a play on the popular "Game of Thrones" phrase.
