President Trump has learned not to play with The Caped Crusader.

On Tuesday, POTUS tweeted a 2020 campaign video set to the score from The Dark Knight Rises.

It didn’t take long for Warner Bros. to get wind that copyrighted music from its 2012 Batman blockbuster was being used without permission.

By Tuesday night, the studio announced it planned to take legal action.

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

Kapow! A short time later the video was gone.

The roughly two-minute clip showed Trump touting some of his supposed successes, mixed in with shots of his mortal enemies — Rosie O’Donnell, Amy Schumer, Hillary Clinton and President Obama.

The dramatic text read: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they call you racist.”

It’s unclear who created the video, but by tweeting it, Trump endorsed it. He captioned his tweet, “Make America Great Again.”

Trump posted the clip on Tuesday afternoon, but savvy Twitter users noticed the music was from Hans Zimmer’s score for The Dark Knight Rises and alerted Warner Bros. The studio immediately sprang into action and the video was yanked.

While the clip is gone, USA Today made a parody of it. Check out their video below.
