In this here normal country called the United States of America, Donald Trump's social media director Dan Scavino tweeted out a campaign video for the 2020 election using a cover version of the Linkin Park song "In The End".

Adele's hits Rolling In The Deep and Skyfall were played at Mr Trump's political rallies in 2016, prompting her spokesman to point out she had not given permission for her music to be used for any political campaigning.

A Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice was issued by Machine Shop Entertainment, which is owned by Linkin Park, according to The Guardian. "A cease and desist has been issued".

A Twitter representative said in an email statement: "We respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorised representatives".

Twitter has repeatedly locked horns with the U.S. leader, who has accused Silicon Valley of being biased against him. In another incident, Twitter included a warning label on one of Trump's tweets, alleging that his message calling for a tough response to rioting in Minneapolis violated the site's policy against "glorifying violence".

The group's late lead singer Chester Bennington was outspoken in his disapproval of the Republican president.

Mr Bennington died two years ago on July 20, 2017.

This isn't the first time a music artist has told the Trump campaign not to use their music.

Before his death, Mr Bennington tweeted: "I repeat.... We have to take back our voices and stand for what we believe in", his tweet read.
