On Wednesday, President Donald Trump used Nickelback’s music to amplify his debunked corruption allegations against Joe Biden.
About the Tweet:
President Trump tweeted the video in the afternoon. It contained the picture of the former Vice President Joe Biden. Nickelband’s 2005 song ‘Photograph’ played as the background music.
The tweet featured Nickelback’s lead singer Chad Kroeger carrying a picture. The edited photo from 2014 shows Bidens golfing with Devon Archer. Archer is an executive at Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings. Trump has claimed Biden’s engagement in a corruption cover-up.
However, Twitter removed the video after getting a copyright complaint by Thursday morning. Though the tweet remains.
About the band :
Nickelback is a Canadian rock band. The band formed in 1995 comprises lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike, and drummer Daniel Adair.
The reason behind the Tweet:
Donald Trump’s tweet acts as an attack on Joe Bidden and his son. The President told Ukraine to investigate against either Biden to gather evidence of corruption.
Though, the current Ukrainian officials have not found either Biden guilty in connection with Burisma.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing in the wake of the impeachment inquiry and stepped up his attacks on the Bidens.
The copyright complaint of the video tweet by Trump was made by Warner Music Inc.
The information about the copyright got traced by Lumen Database. Lumen Database is a project that tracks all the copyright complaints.
When asked about the removal of the video, a spokesperson of Twitter responded that the company takes action against any complaints sent by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives.
