Another fan did an amateur job of editing out Trump in the scene with Culkin and shared it on Twitter.

Culkin and Trump had a brief interaction in the movie as they were in the New York Plaza Hotel. In the scene, the young child actor approached Trump and asked for directions to the lobby.

In November, the Home Alone 2 director Chris Columbus claimed Trump bullied “his way into the movie,” because they were shooting in his hotel property. 

“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. “So we agreed to put him in the movie, and when we screened it for the first time the oddest thing happened: People cheered when Trump showed up on screen.”
