Twitter Pulls Down President Trump’s Video Tribute To George Floyd.
The American Social Networking Service, Twitter, has pulled down President Donald Trump’s campaign tribute video to George Floyd on its platform, over a copyright complaint.
The clip, which is a collation of photos and videos of protest marches and instances of violence in the aftermath of Floyd’s death, has Trump speaking in the background.
“We respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives,” a Twitter representative said.
The three-minute 45-second video uploaded on Trump’s YouTube channel was tweeted by his campaign on June 3.
The clip, which is still on YouTube, had garnered more than 60,000 views and 13,000 likes.
