While the US President Donald Trump believes that his cameo in the Christmas comedy series Home Alone 2 was an honor, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation doesn't think so. In a recent re-run of the movie, CBC cut the scene featuring the now-president.
When a US military personnel once asked Trump if he was fond of the Home Alone sequel movie, the president replied back saying: “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.”

You guys are the biggest bush league “journalists” of all time. Editing out Trump’s cameo in Home Alone 2. What kind of state-sponsored bullshit it that? #Defund

The cameo, featuring Trump with Macaulay Culkin in a hotel hallway was cut by the CBC during the latest Christmas broadcast, resulting in an online outrage suggesting that the state-run channel was now acting more like the Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin who was notoriously known for attempting to alter history by censoring photographs.
“These are things the Soviets and the Nazis did, trying to erase history. Really scary stuff,” tweeted a user, to which another user replied writing, “Remember the removal of the confederate statuses? You're 100% correct sir.”
A veteran intelligence officer of the US Navy and OANN host Jack Posobiec shared the news of the CBC deleting Trump's cameo, which attracted harsh criticism for the Canadian news broadcaster – with one user tweeting, “Omg! It's not right. This is why you can't trust CBC. They are afraid people will see how nice President Trump is and how genuine a person he is. They don't want children or parents liking him at all.”

When CBC TV when approached about cutting the scene with Trump, they said, “As is often the case with features adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited to allow for commercial time within the format,” and that the edits aren't politically motivated. “These edits were done in 2014, when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected president,” the statement said.
The segment of Home Alone 2 that features Donald Trump lasts around ten seconds.
