A tweet sent by US President Donald Trump was taken down yesterday (October 3) after a copyright complaint was filed against his Twitter account.
The tweet in question contained a clip from Canadian alternative rock band Nickelback’s 2005 music video for their song Photograph.
The video has become a meme, in which the photo held up by Nickelback front man Chad Kroeger at the start of the video is edited to show other photos.
Trump’s version depicted a photo of 2020 Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden on the golf course with a “Ukraine gas exec”.
A notice now states: “This media has been removed in response to a report by the copyright owner.”

The tweet was sent amidst the Trump/Ukraine/Biden scandal which has led to the launch of an impeachment enquiry.
Nickelback’s song was released by Warner Music Group-owned Roadrunner Records.
As reported by TorrentFreak, this marks the seventh copyright complaint filed against Trump’s Twitter account this year.
