President Donald Trump’s cameo within the 1992 movie “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” was cut from a Canadian television channel’s recent broadcasts. The scene shows Mr. Trump walking through the Plaza Hotel in NY City — which he owned at the time — as actor Macaulay Culkin’s character, Kevin McCallister, stops him to invite directions.
Twitter users watching the movie on CBC this season acknowledged that Mr. Trump’s scene didn’t appear. The CBS-owned site Comicbook.com reported the broadcaster acknowledged cutting the scene and provided a piece of evidence.
“As is usually the case with feature films adapted for television, “Home Alone 2″ was edited for time,” CBC spokesperson Chuck Thompson said on Thursday during a statement. “The scene with Donald Trump was one among several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot. These edits were wiped out in 2014, once we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected president.”
