A video posted by Donald Trump’s campaign team that pays "tribute" to George Floyd and decries protests in the wake of his killing has been removed by Twitter, Variety reports.

Twitter claimed it pulled the video after it received a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown request from a copyright owner of at least one of the images in the video, but the company did not specify who that was. In response to the video’s removal, Trump's team accused the platform of censoring an "uplifting and unifying message from President Trump."

The four-minute clip posted on Wednesday shows peaceful demonstrations while Trump describes George Floyd's death as a "grave tragedy" that "should never have happened." The footage then shifts to scenes of unrest and looting where Trump warns about violence from "radical leftwing groups."  He said, “The memory of George Floyd is being dishonored by rioters, looters and anarchists.”

In an accompanying tweet, Team Trump wrote "We are working toward a more just society, but that means building up, not tearing down. Joining hands, not hurling fists. Standing in solidarity, not surrendering to hostility."
