President Donald Trump and his current war of words involving former Vice President Joe Biden has now roped in, of all things, Nickelback.

President Trump shared a clip that opens with Biden saying he’s never spoken to his son, Hunter, about his overseas business dealings, and then the clip cuts to Nickelback’s “Photograph” music video. The photograph Chad Kroeger is holding features both Joe and Hunter Biden with Devon Archer, a longtime colleague of Hunter Biden’s who was on the board of Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings.

President Trump is currently facing an impeachment inquiry after a whistleblower complaint regarding a July phone call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy where Trump tried to get Zelenskiy to investigate Hunter Biden, who was also on the board of Burisma Holdings. Trump has accused Joe Biden of trying to dismiss a Ukrainian prosecutor that was investigating Burisma.

The Nickelback meme video, however, has since been removed from President Trump’s tweet. The Hill reports that Twitter removed the clip “following a copyright claim from the firm representing the band.”

So far, there are no reports as to who in the Trump camp created the clip in the first place.
