“The use of Warner Bros.’ score from The Dark Knight Rises in the campaign video was unauthorized. We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson told The Hill. 

Trump shared the two-minute clip earlier Tuesday with the caption: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” 

The video began with the message: “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they call you racist.” It also featured an image of a Trump campaign logo and “2020.” 

The clip also featured a number of prominent figures who have criticized the president, including former President Obama, Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonHillary Clinton: ‘White nationalists certainly think MAGA is a white nationalist slogan’ Republican Party has to embrace moderation or lose crucial voters Nunes sues newspaper chain, alleges ‘character assassination’ MORE, former President Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonObama had it right — a circular firing squad is on the way Madeleine Albright disses Trump over Homeland Security upheaval Nadler: ‘There was in plain sight open collusion’ MORE, comedians Amy Schumer and Rosie O’Donnell, and actor Bryan Cranston.
