President Trump’s likeness has finally debuted at Disney’s ‘Hall of Presidents,’ but people aren’t impressed.
Some believe Trump resembles Hillary Clinton, actor Jon Voight, and even Biff Tannen from Back to the Future: Part II.
From Daily Caller:
The longstanding show at the park features robotic presidents telling the story of America. It is beloved by audiences. However, Trump’s addition has been controversial and taken over a year to install. Robot Trump was unveiled Tuesday along with the message Trump recorded for his likeness.

More from Fox News:
More than one has even stated that the animatronic likeness looks more like Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight than Trump.
He looks like old Biff from back to the future

The park opened up its refurbished Hall of Presidents attraction for a sneak peek on Dec. 18 ahead of its official debut on Tuesday, giving park-goers a first look at its new audio-animatronic likeness of the 45th commander in chief. The new “Trump” is said to feature “the latest advances in technology that enable smoother and more lifelike movements,” according to the official Disney Parks Blog.
The animatronic Trump’s words, per Business Insider:
According to Disney Parks, Trump recorded audio exclusively for the exhibit. It’s something each president has done since the ’90s.
Here’s what he says:
“I, Donald John Trump, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the United States, so help me God. From the beginning , America has been a nation defined by its people. America has been a nation defined by its people. At our founding, it was the American people who rose up to defend our freedoms and win our independence. It is why our founders began our great constitution with three very simple words, “We the People.” Since that moment, each generation of Americans has taken its place in the defense of our freedom, our flag, and our nation under God. These are the achievements of the American spirit — the spirit of a people who fought and died to bring the blessings of liberty to all our people. Above all, to be American is to be an optimist, to believe that we can always do better and that the best days of our great nation are still ahead of us. It’s a privilege to serve as the President of the United States, to stand here among so many great leaders of our past and to work on behalf of the American people.”
“From the beginning, America has been a nation defined by its people,” says Disney’s “Trump,” who is dressed in his signature tie and unbuttoned jacket. “At our founding, it was the American people who rose up to defend our freedoms and win our independence.”
“Above all, to be American is to be an optimist — to believe that we can always do better — and that the best days of our great nation are still ahead of us,” Trump concludes in a later snippet.
“It’s a privilege to serve as the President of the United States, to stand here among so many great leaders of our past, and to work on behalf of the American people.”
Far left late night talk show host Seth Meyers had some words, per Deadline:
“I think, as our Christmas gift to ourselves, we’re just going to use that as our Trump picture from now on,” Meyers announced.
And then, he did.
For a Late Night gag about former director of National intelligence James Clapper having recently said Vladimir Putin appears to be handling Trump like one of his spies, Clapper’s headshot stared sternly at Animatronic Donald Trump. “I don’t think he’s been poisoned” yet by Putin, Meyers said of Trump, because “This is what he’d look like if poisoned.”
