Trump Tweet of Nickelback Video Aimed at Biden Removed


FILE PHOTO: U.S. President Donald Trump arrives for a photo opportunity with sheriffs from across the country on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Sept. 26, 2019.

Twitter has removed a tweet from President Donald Trump that featured an edited Nickelback music video clip that took aim at former Vice President Joe Biden.

The post was removed because of a copyright complaint. It featured a doctored version of the band's 2015 music video "Photograph," showing singer Chad Kroeger holding a photo of Biden, his son, a Ukrainian gas executive and another man.

Trump's tweet came as the president has repeatedly criticized Democrats for launching an impeachment inquiry into his telephone call with Ukraine's president in which Trump pressed for an investigation of his Democratic rival Biden and his son.

A Twitter spokeswoman said Thursday it responded "to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives."

Nickelback representatives have not returned messages seeking comment.
