Twitter took down another Trump meme video Saturday night, this one regarding a cover version of Linkin Park’s “In the End” used in the soundtrack.
Linkin Park voiced their complaint, saying, “Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music. A cease and desist has been issued.”

@realDonaldTrump shared a campaign video that was promptly blocked by #Twitter for copyright infringement. It included a cover of @linkinpark’s “In The End” apparently without the band’s permission.
