Prior to becoming President, Donald Trump was known both as a business-man and as a Hollywood star. With regard to the latter, he often made cameo appearances in movies. One such movie was the 1992 film Home Alone 2.
Recently, however, in Canada, President Trump’s appearance in Home Alone 2 was cut from the movie. The move by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on Thursday has been drawing unanimous panning from conservatives and Trump supporters alike.

President Trump –as by custom, through twitter– responded to the move by tweeting “I guess Justin T doesn’t much like my making him pay up on NATO or Trade!” and “The movie will never be the same! (just kidding).”
The spokesman for the Candian Broadcasting Corporation, Chuck Thompson, had this to say in a statement about the decision. “As is often the case with feature films adapted for television, “Home Alone 2″ was edited for time,” Thompson said in a statement. “The scene with Donald Trump was one of several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot. These edits were done in 2014, when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected president.”
The seven-second cameo has Donald Trump directing young Macaulay Culkin to the lobby of the Plaza Hotel –a building Trump owned at the time.
Trump stated about his appearance, “A lot of people mention it every year, especially around Christmas. They say, ‘I just saw you.’ Especially young kids, they say, “I just saw you on the movie.” They don’t see me on television as they — as they do in the movie. But it’s been a good movie. And I was a little bit younger, to put it mildly,” Trump said. “It was an honor to do it. And it turned out to be a very big hit, obviously. It’s a big Christmas hit — one of the biggest. So it’s an honor to be involved in something like that. You always like to see success.”
