Twitter removed a video from one of President Donald Trump’s tweets on Tuesday after it received a copyright complaint from Eddy Grant, the musician whose hit song “Electric Avenue” appears in the video, NBC News reports.

Twitter spokesperson Nick Pacilio confirmed to NBC News that the video had been taken down in response to a copyright complaint, per company policy.
