Donald Trump Scene Cut In "My Poor Little Angel 2"

The Canadian television network CBC confirmed Thursday that it eliminated a brief appearance of Donald Trump in the movie "Home Alone 2", claiming that the cut was made before Trump was elected as president of the United States.

Known in Latin America as "My poor little angel 2" and in Spain as "Only at home 2", the 1992 comedy starring Macaulay Culkin was recently aired by the English-speaking public network, but without the scene in which Trump appears.

Chuck Thompson, CBC spokesman, confirmed on Thursday that the scene with Trump and others were removed from the film's montage five years ago, a common practice in the television broadcast of films for which scenes that are not central to the plot are cut to leave room for the issuance of commercials.

On Tuesday, the Republican millionaire said he felt "honored" to have participated in that film and described it as a success.

"The scene with Donald Trump was one of many that were cut from the movie because they were not an integral part of the plot," Thompson explained. "These editions were made in 2014, when we originally acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected as president."
