- According to viewers, US President Donald Trump's cameo has been edited out of Home Alone 2: New York on Canadian air
- The spokesman for CBC has said that the development was not politically motivated, but to allow the station to do commercials
- Trump on his twitter handle on Friday, December 27, connected the development to the differences he has with Justin Trudeau, the country's prime minister
Just days after US president, Donald Trump, said that appearing in Home Alone movie was an honour, a Canadian TV station cut out his appearance from its Christmas broadcast.
Independent reports that viewers said the president’s appearance in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York was edited out of CBC.
It should be noted, however, that a spokesperson for the channel has denied the action as a political one, citing that it was to allow for a commercial slot.
“As is often the case with features adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited to allow for commercial time within the format,” he said.
On Christmas eve, Trump had mentioned the 1992 movie during a conference call with members of the military.
When asked, according to Deadline, if it was a favourite Christmas movie, he replied many people talk about the movie every year, mentioning how people say they saw him in it.
“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.
“I was a little younger, to put it mildly. It was an honour to do it. It turned out to be a very big hit, obviously. It’s a big Christmas hit - one of the biggest. So, it’s an honour to be involved in something like that. You always like to see success,” he said.
Trump subtweeted the news about the development, saying Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister does not like him "making him pay up on NATO or Trade”
