A video tweeted by President Trump was removed from Twitter on Saturday after the publisher of R.E.M.’s songs complained about the band’s music being used in the video, CNBC reported.
Trump shared the video, which mocked Democrats with excerpts from his Feb. 5 State of the Union address. The roughly two-minute video featured R.E.M.’s 1992 hit single “Everybody Hurts” alongside close-ups of Democrats who looked displeased during Trump’s address.
