The attraction, which includes every U.S. president, has had to provide extra security for the Trump sculpture since its installation, including guards and large spikes near the stage, according to Orlando Weekly.

Last summer, amid nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, the theme park reportedly decided to reassess which of its attractions were potentially insensitive or controversial, with a preliminary list reportedly including Liberty Square, where the Hall of Presidents is located.


"As a place for escapism, I’d venture to say presidential politics may be one of the top things people would want a break from these days,” Josh Young, who runs the theme park opinion site Theme Park University, told Orlando Weekly.

“While the Hall of Presidents is specifically written in such a way to not lean to one side or the other, the mere mention of the name Trump or Biden will set people’s blood boiling. Maybe not because they disagree with their politics, but just because they are tired of hearing about it,” he added.

Even before last week's assault on the Capitol, the Trump model itself has long drawn criticism on aesthetic grounds, with people theorizing that it was originally designed to be Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonMedia circles wagons for conspiracy theorist Neera Tanden The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by The AIDS Institute - Senate ref axes minimum wage, House votes today on relief bill Democratic strategists start women-run media consulting firm MORE when it was assumed she would win the 2016 election.


The Hall of Presidents itself has consistently been among the Magic Kingdom theme park’s less popular attractions, and rumors flew last year that “Hamilton” composer Lin-Manuel Miranda and song parodist “Weird Al” Yankovic were in talks to retool it.

The Hill has reached out to Disney for comment.

The House voted 232-197 on Wednesday to impeach Trump for his role in last week's violence in Washington, which saw supporters of his storm the Capitol in an attempt to stop the certification of President-elect Joe BidenJoe BidenNoem touts South Dakota coronavirus response, knocks lockdowns in CPAC speech On The Trail: Cuomo and Newsom — a story of two embattled governors Biden celebrates vaccine approval but warns 'current improvement could reverse' MORE's Electoral College victory.
