Even before Donald Trump became the President of the United States, he was already a TV personality and did some guesting on TV shows and cameos in movies.

KAMI learned that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) removed Trump’s cameo in the 1992 Christmas movie Home Alone 2.

In a report by the Hollywood Life, CBC aired a different version of the film on Christmas Eve without the 10-second scene of Trump at the Plaza Hotel.

In the scene, Kevin McCallister has been wandering the Plaza Hotel and asked a random passerby, who happens to be Trump at the lobby. Trump was given a one-liner as he was and still is the owner of New York City’s Plaza Hotel.

However, CBC explained why they had the cameo of Trump removed.

“As is often the case with feature films adapted for television, ‘Home Alone 2’ was edited for time. 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,” CBC said in a statement.

On Christmas Eve, Trump just expressed that it was an “honor” to be in Home Alone 2.

"Well I’m in Home Alone 2. 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 bit younger, to put it mildly. And it was an honor to do it,” Trump told the U.S. troops.

Meanwhile, his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., thought that the incident was “pathetic.”
