Disney World Adds Trump To Hall Of Presidents, Check What He Says
It’s not a perfect likeness, but that’s okay.
President Trump’s audio-animatronic figure has been added to Walt Disney World’s Hall of Presidents exhibit.
In the new Hall of Presidents exhibit, Trump can be seen standing next to Abraham Lincoln and surrounded by his 43 predecessors as he delivers a message of American pride to park visitors.
“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,” the figure made in Trump’s likeness says. Read more at Washington Examiner.
But while Disney may have captured the president’s animated hand movements very faithfully, the robot’s physical appearance isn’t winning praise on Twitter. Commenters have already compared Disney’s Trump-bot to Jon Voight, but also Angela Lansbury, the character of Biff Tannen from “Back to the Future: Part 2” and even Hillary Clinton, his opponent in the 2016 presidential election.
Regardless, there’s no arguing that Disney got Trump’s “voice” right. The park confirmed that President Trump had recorded his own dialogue to be spoken by his animatronic likeness, despite earlier reports to the contrary, which Disney was forced to debunk in June.
Following an introduction from the attraction’s animatronic George Washington, President Trump’s likeness recites his oath of office before launching into a minute-long speech, per a YouTube clip shared by WDWMagic. Read more at Fox News.
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.”
