Donald Trump has posted a video of himself dancing to Village People's 'YMCA' on the morning of the US presidential election.

The incumbent President posted the two-minute-long video to his 87.4 million followers, alongside the caption: "VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!"

At the time of writing, it has been viewed over 10 million times and been pinned to the top of the Republican candidate's profile.

As per the Metro, the President posted the video after Victor Willis, the original member of Village People, asked the 74-year-old to stop using their songs at rallies in June.

Speaking to BBC News, Willis said: "As far as endorsing Trump, I don't endorse Trump, I have never endorsed Trump, nor has the Village People.

"So we have even asked him to even stop playing our music at his rallies."

Willis added that Trump is able to play the track at his rallies due to blanket copyright laws.

Trump has regularly used the 1974 hit track at rallies to dance to after addressing his supporters.

At recent rallies, the President has become known for ending his events by shimmying and shaking his hips, and he occasionally combines these moves with a clap or fist pump as 'YMCA' is played.

The video above was made using footage from previous rallies to create the two-minute-and-12-second long video which moves from city to city and features the president dancing in each new location.

The unusual montage did not go unnoticed by users of the social media platform and has received more than 335k likes and 72K retweets.

Kevin M. Kruse wrote in response: "It seems that someone has hacked the president's account and posted this cruel montage of him dancing like a tipsy grandma at a wedding reception."

A third posted a photoshopped video of Trump dancing to the 'YMCA' onto a sinking ship:

The video marks a stark change from the President's typically serious, political tweets, and marks a final attempt to win over voters as they head to the polls today.

However, Trump is not the only person to have raised a smile at Republican rallies, and many were tickled pink at the recent revelation that Sacha Baron Cohen dressed up as President Trump and gatecrashed a Mike Pence rally for the long-awaited Borat sequel.

Baron Cohen, 49, said that he primarily used the movie "to ring the alarm bell and say that democracy is in peril this year".
