Twitter has removed an image tweeted by President Donald Trump for violating the company’s copyright policy.

Trump’s tweet showed a picture taken by Damon Winter for the New York Times in 2015. But the president had turned it into a meme with the words: “In reality they’re not after me they’re after you.”

It ends off with: “I’m just in the way” at the bottom. 

The tweet now just shows a “media not displayed” notice after Twitter removed the picture.

“Per our copyright policy, we respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives,” a Twitter spokesperson told CNBC. 

“Twitter responds to copyright complaints submitted under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”),” the company’s copyright policy says.

The New York Times filed the takedown notice, a company’s spokesperson said. 

Twitter has been cracking down on Trump’s tweets that violates its policies. 

Last month, the president posted a viral doctored video of two kids. Twitter slapped it with a “manipulated media” tag and the video was eventually removed after a copyright claim from one of the child’s parents.
