Linkin Park is the latest music act to join the list of artists banning their music from President Trump's reelection campaign.

The band issued a cease and desist after their hit song "In the End" was featured in a video shared by White House social media director Dan Scavino and retweeted by Trump.

"Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music," a Saturday tweet from the band's official Twitter reads. "A cease and desist has been issued."

The video has now been disabled on Twitter "in response to a report by the copyright owner," a notice from the site says, replacing the video.

The version of the song used in the video was a cover, performed by Tommee Profitt featuring Fleurie and Jung Youth, Variety reports.

On Saturday, Youth tweeted in response.

"Earlier today I found out that Trump illegally used a cover song that I am part of in a propaganda video which he tweeted," he tweeted. "Anyone who knows me knows I stand firmly against bigotry and racism. Much love to everyone in the twitter community who helped get the video taken down fr!!"

Late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington had previously expressed a dislike for Trump.

Other artists to condemn the use of their music by the Trump administration and campaign teams include Neil YoungTom Petty (via his estate), The Rolling StonesElton John and Adele.
