President Trump posted a trolling video on Twitter using the Canadian band Nickelback’s video for the popular song “Photograph” and after a copyright complaint from the band, Twitter has since removed the video.
LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH! pic.twitter.com/QQYTqG4KTt

The tweet contained this image of Chad Kroeger holding a photo, but instead of the original photo that was framed in the video, someone had edited in Joe Biden and his son Hunter with Devon Archer, the gas company executive from Ukraine.
Here’s the original photo.
And the photoshopped version from the President’s tweet.
“Photograph” was a number one hit for the band back in 2005. Trump fans aren’t especially happy with Twitter for removing the President’s video, though.

Hey @Nickelback this is such a bunch of bull that you would disable the media on this. I bought your song on iTunes 9 hours ago because I loved @realDonaldTrump’s tweet so much & I’ve also always been a fan of you guys. Now I want to return the song & get my nickels back!! https://t.co/IG9PgJ1WNV

Nickelback had a great chance to show their open-mindedness but they blew it by asking Twitter to remove it from Trump's viral tweet.
Like many others, I downloaded it.
