Canada’s nationwide broadcaster CBC has protected erasing a scene featuring Donald Trump from the film Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
CBC representative Chuck Thompson said eight minutes of the 120- minute movie had been cut to make way for adverts.
He stated the edits were made in 2014, prior to Mr Trump was elected, and were not politically encouraged.
The modified film was revealed by CBC previously this month, triggering criticism from Mr Trump’s advocates.
His kid Donald Trump Jr tweeted a link to a story on Thursday that called the edit ‘worthless’.
President Trump responded late on Thursday, tweeting that “the film will never ever be the exact same! (simply kidding)”.
In a reference to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and well-documented disagreements in between the two leaders on major policy concerns, Mr Trump also quipped: “I guess Justin T does not just like my making him pay up on Nato or trade!”
On Christmas Eve, Mr Trump explained Home Alone 2, which was released in 1992, as “a huge Christmas hit” throughout a video conference call to US troops overseas, according to Due date website.
” Well I’m in Home Alone 2,” Mr Trump said. “A lot of individuals mention it every year, particularly around Christmas. They state – especially young kids- they state, ‘I simply saw you on the film.’ They don’t see me on television as they carry out in the motion picture.

” However it’s been a great movie and I was a little younger, to put it mildly. And it was an honour to do it.”
Mr Trump has made a number of cameo looks in movies, consisting of Zoolander and Ghosts Can’t Do It.
In House Alone 2’s uncut version, he is briefly seen in a scene at New York’s Plaza Hotel, when Macaulay Culkin’s character Kevin asks him for directions. Mr Trump was the hotel’s owner at the time.
