Late a year ago, director Chris Columbus revealed to Insider that Trump-a failed steak salesman perhaps best known for being impeached twice-had (unsurprisingly) bullied his way into a cameo in the 1992 family comedy.
If you didn't know, Trump purchased the Plaza Hotel in 1988 before selling it in 1995. A hotel which the then-future president owned at the time. "We couldn't rebuild The Plaza on a soundstage". However, he also added another caveat for Columbus as well.
"We paid the fee, but he also said, 'The only way you can use the Plaza is if I'm in the movie, '" Columbus, 62, told Insider.
If Trump were a Democrat, this Home Alone 2 scene would be beloved today just as the way it clearly was by audiences in 1992. However, the director was more than happy to scrap the scene after it was shot.
