In fact, Trump recently mentioned his appearance on the beloved holiday film while talking to military members in a teleconference on Christmas Eve."Well, I'm in 'Home Alone 2,' and a lot of people mention it every year, especially around Christmas," he said. "They say 'I just saw you.' Especially young kids, they say, 'I just saw you on the movie.' They don't see me on television as they do in the movie. But it's been a good movie and I was a little bit younger, to put it mildly, and it was an honor to do it."
