Donald Trump Posts Macaulay Culkin Video

Former President Donald Trump recently took to his Truth Social account and posted a video clip of a scene from Home Alone 2 featuring Macaulay Culkin.



Donald Trump recently shut down claims made by the director Chris Columbus that he “bullied his way into” appearing in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

The former US president said on his social media platform Truth Social, that the film’s production team were “begging me to make a cameo appearance”.

Trump said of the 1992 film: “They rented the Plaza hotel in New York, which I owned at the time. I was very busy, and didn’t want to do it. They were very nice, but above all, persistent.

“I agreed, and the rest is history! That little cameo took off like a rocket and the movie was a big success, and still is, especially around Christmas time. People call me whenever it is aired.”

The sequel to the 1990 comedy Home Alone, Home Alone 2 made $359m (£280m) and was the third-highest grossing film of 1992.

In 2020, Columbus, who directed both movies, told Business Insider that Trump’s cameo was a condition of being able to film inside the Plaza hotel, on top of the usual fee.

“He did bully his way into the movie,” said Columbus, who reported Trump as saying: “The only way you can use the Plaza is if I’m in the movie.”

But Trump said on Truth Social this week: “Nothing could be further from the truth.” He added that his appearance had given the film a considerable boost. “That cameo helped make the movie a success, but if they felt bullied, or didn’t want me, why did they put me in, and keep me there, for over 30 years? Because I was, and still am, great for the movie, that’s why! Just another Hollywood guy from the past looking for a quick fix of Trump publicity for himself!”
