Donald Trump reacts to being removed from 'Home Alone 2'
Donald Trump has reacted to the news that he has been removed from the holiday classic Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
The now President made the cameo in the 1992 movie which sees Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) check into New York's Plaza hotel after accidentally taking a flight to the city while his family flew to Florida for the holidays.
As he walks through the lobby, he briefly asks for directions from an adult who is played by none other than Donald Trump, who, at that point in time, was nothing more than a very successful businessman.
To see the president's cameo for yourself, check out the video below:
The movie airs around the world during the holidays, but one Canadian television channel, CBC, has made the decision to remove the recently impeached president from their broadcast of it - a move which was immediately slammed by the president's son, Donald Trump Jr.
He took to Twitter to describe the cameo removal as "pathetic" while sharing the story. He also made a point of tweeting the scene itself from another account later in the day.
Then the president himself reacted to the news that his cameo had been removed.
"I guess Justin [Trudeau] doesn’t much like my making him pay up on NATO or Trade!" he first tweeted.
He then wrote, "The movie will never be the same! (just kidding)."
The decision to remove Trump from the movie has now been defended by CBC, as per the BBC, with spokesman Chuck Thompson explaining that they had cut eight minutes of the movie to make way for adverts.
The president previously mentioned his cameo in the movie during a video conference call to US troops overseas, according to Deadline, describing it as "a big Christmas hit".
"Well I'm in Home Alone 2," Trump said. "A lot of people mention it every year, especially around Christmas. They say - especially young kids- they say, 'I just saw you on the movie.' They don't see me on television as they do in the movie."
"But it's been a good movie and I was a little younger, to put it mildly. And it was an honor to do it."
